Why Is Chimney Relining Necessary?

Chimney relining is necessary to ensure the safety and efficiency of your chimney system. Over time, chimney liners can deteriorate due to wear and tear, moisture damage, or exposure to extreme temperatures. Here’s why chimney relining is important:

Fire Protection

Old or damaged chimney liners can become a fire hazard. Cracks or gaps in the liner can allow heat and combustion by-products to escape into the walls surrounding your chimney, increasing the risk of a chimney fire.

Carbon Monoxide Safety

Damaged chimney liners can also cause carbon monoxide to leak into your home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas that can be deadly in high concentrations. Chimney relining helps prevent carbon monoxide leaks and ensures your family’s safety.

Improved Efficiency

A damaged chimney liner can obstruct proper airflow and affect the efficiency of your fireplace or heating system. Relining your chimney helps restore optimal airflow, improving your chimney system’s performance and energy efficiency.

Extended Lifespan

By investing in chimney relining, you can extend the lifespan of your chimney system. A high-quality chimney liner can protect your chimney from further damage and deterioration, ensuring it serves you for many years to come.

When Do You Need A Chimney Relining?

Cracks And Gaps In The Liner

If you see visible cracks or gaps in your chimney liner, it is damaged and needs attention. These openings can allow heat and gases to escape, posing a fire hazard and compromising the safety of your home.

Smoke Entering The Room During Fireplace Use

If smoke enters the room when using your fireplace, the chimney liner is no longer functioning properly. This issue can occur due to cracks, gaps, or other liner damages that disrupt the proper venting of smoke.

Chimney Fires Or Lightning Strikes

If your chimney has recently experienced a fire or been struck by lightning, inspecting the chimney liner for damage is crucial. These events can cause severe damage to the liner and compromise its ability to vent smoke and gases safely.

Smoke Entering The Room During Fireplace Use

Relining the chimney becomes necessary when installing a new fireplace or heating appliance that uses a different fuel type than your existing one. Different fuel types produce different byproducts, and the chimney liner needs to be suitable for the specific appliance’s venting requirements.

Chimney Was Built Without A Liner

Older homes may have chimneys that were built without a liner. If your chimney falls into this category, it’s essential to have a chimney liner installed to ensure the safe venting of smoke, gases, and combustion by-products.

Chimney Relining FAQs

Chimney relining involves installing a new chimney flue liner inside your existing chimney structure. It’s necessary to ensure your chimney system’s safety and proper functioning. Over time, chimney liners can deteriorate or become damaged, compromising your home’s fire protection and carbon monoxide safety.

You may need a chimney relining if you notice any cracks or gaps in the chimney liner or if the smoke is entering your rooms during fireplace use.

You might also need to get your chimney inspected (and relined when required) if you have recently experienced a chimney fire or a lightning strike.

There are various types of chimney liners available, including clay flue liners, ceramic or cement liners, and metal flue liners.

Clay and ceramic/cement liners are durable but can eventually deteriorate. Metal flue liners, specifically stainless steel liners, are the most recommended due to their durability and fire protection capabilities.
