What Does a Chimney Liner Do?

chimney liner works really hard for your chimney. First of all, it prevents fire and heat from moving past your brickwork and onto your housing materials and surrounding woodwork. These materials are obviously a lot more flammable than masonry, and you may be surprised how quickly you’ll see flames without the protection of a liner.

The masonry itself also needs a shield to protect it from the incredible heat your fireplace produces. Your mortar will break down fast if left exposed, and the resulting holes and cracks allow pathways for these hazardous toxins to enter your home. We want you to get years and years of use out of your chimney, with as few problems as possible. Have it relined, so you know you’re good to go!

Last, but not least, liners help you run your fireplace efficiently. When you light fires, you want the best results you can get! Yet, this is only possible if proper upkeep and maintenance are applied. If your liner isn’t sized correctly, you’ll see more creosote build-up, meaning more costly investments will be necessary to get things running well again.

Consider a Stainless Steel Liner

As you can see, having a properly sized and correctly installed liner is important! While there are a few different materials you can choose from in a liner (such as clay, metal, or aluminum), one of the best options you can pick is stainless steel. If you know anything about stainless steel, you know it’s built to withstand quite a bit!

At SirVent Chimney & Venting Service we offer all types of flue options, but like to point out that stainless steel is quite popular among our customers. It can be used with various fuels and it simply cannot be beaten in durability. If you want something that will stand the test of time, then stainless steel is the choice for you!
