An essential part of your chimney system, the liner serves important functions to make your fireplace and chimney work as safe as it possibly can. If your chimney liner is aging or if you do not even have a liner in your chimney at all, Aelite Chimney Specialties can professionally install a top quality liner to give you safe and optimal fires in your fireplace. An unlined chimney is very dangerous. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) has even reported that researchers at the National Bureau of Standards said that building a chimney without lining it is a “little less than criminal.” We would like to tell you more about chimney liners by answering a couple of questions for you.
Why are chimney liners so important for optimal and safe fires?
Chimney liners are crucial to the functioning of a chimney for three reasons:
- to protect your home from the high temperatures that occur within a chimney when a fire is burning in the fireplace
- to protect the bricks and mortar of your chimney from the damaging and corrosive byproducts of combustion like smoke, toxic gases, and tar fog
- to give a properly sized flue to the heating appliance your chimney is serving to allow the appliance to work most efficiently and effective.
How can Aelite Chimney Specialties help me with relining my chimney?
If you do have an existing chimney liner, the only way to know its condition is to have a professional chimney inspection. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have been trained in the different levels of chimney inspections that were established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and are experienced in examining chimney liners as part of the inspection process.
If we find damage or deterioration to your chimney liner such as cracks or gaps that can cause using your fireplace and chimney to be unsafe and hazardous, we can reline your chimney with a durable stainless steel liner. We sell and install Ventinox liners which are constructed from a strong stainless steel that can stand up to extremely hot temperatures from solid fuel sources like wood and resist corrosion from oil and gas. No matter what type of heating appliance you have or what type of fuel it uses, a Ventinox liner is perfect for your chimney. These liners are equipped with spiral corrugations that allow them to be both strong and flexible. The stainless steel alloy of Ventinox liners is extremely resistant to chloride pitting and stress corrosion and cracking. Aelite Chimney Specialties feels that all of these qualities make this brand of chimney liners the best of its kind. We are proud to be able to install these liners to make chimneys perform safely and efficiently.
