Chimney Liners - What do they do?

By William Hussel

CHIMNEY LINERS

Furnaces and hot water tanks exhaust large quantities of water vapor during the normal combustion of natural gas.

Clay flue tiles that have gaps or cracks allow this moisture into the interior structure of the chimney which eventually deteriorates the masonry structure form the inside out.

Additionally, gases vented from gas burning appliances can escape the lining and migrate into the home.

Installing a stainless steel liner represents a “forever fix” and carries a lifetime warranty.

A new chimney liner with a proper sealing can safely lock moisture inside the chimney, preventing repeat damage.
