Why & When Does My Chimney Need To Be Relined?
A chimney may need to be relined for a number of different reasons, the most common being the following:
Damaged Liner – Chimney liners can undergo quite a bit of damage over time, especially if the chimney system is not regularly cleaned or vital chimney components, like the cap, are missing or damaged. Whether caused by the highly acidic byproducts of oil or gas combustion or moisture from rain and snow, metal and clay tile liners can deteriorate and develop holes or cracks. When this happens, the safety and efficiency of the entire chimney system and hearth appliance, furnace, boiler, or water heater is compromised and the system will need to be relined. If the chimney is not relined, your appliance will be a poor performer; carbon monoxide and smoke can make their way into your home; and heat and byproducts can make their way into the walls surrounding your chimney, causing structural damage and even house fire.
Change In Fuel Types/Appliance Types – Different fuels produce different levels of heat and different byproducts. Unfortunately, not all liner materials are designed to handle the heat and byproducts of each fuel type. If your chimney has been venting a gas appliance but you’re switching to wood, for example, your liner may not be right for the switch and may need to be replaced.
Change In Appliance Size – For maximum efficiency, the liner of your chimney needs to be appropriately sized for the size of the fireplace, stove, or insert it’s venting. If you’re switching out appliances and choose one that is larger or smaller than your existing appliance, a new liner may be needed.
Missing Liner – Historically, chimneys haven’t always been lined. If you have an older chimney that was constructed without a liner, you’re at serious risk of fire and other hazards, like carbon monoxide poisoning. The National Bureau of Standards states that a chimney without a liner is so dangerous, it’s “little less than criminal.”
Whatever your reason for needing a new chimney liner, we can help.
