Ensure your chimney is safe and properly maintained.
A chimney liner is installed to contain combustible products, direct them outside of your home, and protect the chimney wall from heat and corrosion. Unlined chimneys facilitate rapid heat transfer to nearby combustibles and can result in a fire. In addition, because flue gases are acidic in nature and may damage or corrode the mortar joints inside the chimney, a chimney liner will protect the masonry (brick and mortar) from corrosive byproducts and prevent dangerous gases from leaking into your home.
A correctly sized chimney liner will prevent excessive creosote buildup in wood-burning stoves and fireplaces.
