Stainless Steel Liners Offer Quality & Durability For All-Fuel Types!

stainless-steel-chimney-liners

As components in your chimney system go, the chimney liner deserves a lot of respect — it protects the bricks inside your chimney from corrosion, protects the mortar between the bricks from deterioration, keeps toxic carbon monoxide from leaking through the masonry, keeps the combustible building materials close to your chimney protected from heat, and helps ensure that proper draft is achieved in your flue. All told, it’s a big factor in the level of safety your chimney system provides, and a big help in keeping your venting system efficient. In fact, it’s so important that modern codes require chimneys to have a liner installed.

Clay tile liners are very commonly used in chimneys — when you see a terra cotta-colored section protruding from the top of a chimney, it’s a tile liner. These meet code requirements, but they’re also highly susceptible to damage from chimney fires and degradation from water intrusion.

A damaged or degraded flue liner is something that should be taken very seriously — anything that minimizes the safety level of your chimney system needs to be corrected quickly, and correctly.

Minimal flue liner damage may be repaired using HeatShield® cerfractory sealant. But more significant damage will require relining, and stainless steel liners have become an industry standard when it comes to relining chimneys. Installed by CSIA-certified Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps’ technicians, stainless steel liners increase efficiency and carry a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty against corrosion and chimney fires. If your chimney is in need of relining, call Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps — we can tell you about the benefits of stainless steel liners, and quickly improve your chimney system by installing one.

A Stainless Steel Liner Can Correct Several Chimney Issues

We often install stainless steel chimney liners to replace damaged clay tile flue liners. However, that’s not the only issue the installation of a stainless steel liner can correct.

Lining Historic Unlined Chimneys
Older homes — particularly those dating back to the 1930s and earlier — were built with simple brick chimneys that had no flue liner. Given all the protection that a chimney liner provides, it’s incredibly risky and highly inefficient to use an unlined chimney. Beyond that, an unlined chimney isn’t up to current codes and will need to be corrected if intended for use.

Accommodating A Different Fuel
Clay tile liners are known to inadequately handle the byproducts produced by certain fuel types. Stainless steel chimney liners, however, are considered an “all fuel” chimney lining system, so you can expect proper performance whether you’re using an appliance that burns wood, gas, pellets or oil. This is particularly good to know if you are considering a fuel switch in the future but need a new liner now.

Resizing A Flue For A New Appliance
All heating appliances are designed to properly vent through a specifically sized flue. A flue that isn’t sized properly can lead to inadequate draft, heavier creosote deposits and other issues. If a new appliance is installed using your existing chimney, a new stainless steel liner can bring that flue to the proper size to vent your new appliance.
