Newsletter September 2009
July 19, 2023
September is the time of the year when most of us fire up our chimneys or heating appliances for the first time in the season.
Now is the ideal time to make sure that your chimney is in proper working condition, before the cold season is in full swing.
Installing a chimney liner is one of the best decisions that I have ever made, in order to keep my chimney efficient and my family safe. I was so impressed with the results, that I decided to go into the business.
From my family to yours,
Fire Safety Tip - How Safe Is Your Chimney?
Your chimney has a big responsibility. It carries toxic gas out of your home, and while doing its job, it must withstand constant attack by acid, creosote, and extreme temperatures for months on end.
These conditions cause chimney damage and deterioration, and when that happens, your family's safety is in question. The risks of carbon monoxide poisoning and house fire become real.
Also, older chimneys were not designed to vent modern heating appliances. Besides, no chimney lasts forever.
You Need A Chimney Liner When You Notice Any of the Following:
1- Staining From Leaking Condensation: The condensation in your chimney is seeping through to the interior of your home, or your chimney exterior, and creating costly damage.
2- Disintegrating Chimney Structure: Acidic moisture goes through freeze and thaw periods with expansion and contraction, creating cracks in your mortar and flue tiles.
3- Poor Draft: You have an improper flue size matched to your heating appliance.
4- Tight Clearance: You have inadequate clearance to the wood framing of your home.
5- Damaged Chimney Structure: Will allow carbon monoxide, smoke, and fire to enter your home.
6- Down-Drafting and Smoke: If you have an improperly lined flue, you can expect an unsteady draft, leading to a downward flow, bringing smoke into your home.
