Chimney ReliningLiners are a big deal when it comes to chimneys. An incorrectly-sized liner can lead to excessive creosote build-up in the chimney. While creosote might not seem like a big deal, when chimney fires happen, this highly-flammable substance is usually to blame.
Meanwhile, an unlined chimney poses an even greater risk. Tests conducted by the NBS showed that flue gases entering into brick and mortar spaces (rather than lined spaces) tend to decrease the usable lifetime of a chimney. Eventually, this problem may cause harmful gases to leak into the living space of a home.
Don’t take a risk with an unlined chimney, old liner, or liner prone to creosote build-up; make sure you have a well-maintained and properly sized chimney liner in your home. With your new liner, your fire risks will decrease, and your air quality will undoubtedly improve.
