Is Your Chimney a Good Candidate for a Stainless Steel Liner?

To function at its highest levels of safety and efficiency, your chimney needs to have several components in place. One of the most important parts of a safe and efficient chimney system is the liner. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), the liner plays three crucial roles in the operation of your chimney. They work to protect the combustible parts of your home from heat transfer, keep the bricks and mortar joints safe from corrosive combustion gases, and provide a correctly sized flue for your fireplace.

In the Hudson Valley region, All Seasons Chimney has been relining chimneys for over two decades. You can depend on our CSIA-certified chimney technicians to inspect the condition of your liner and recommend the best for your system. We would like to tell you more about stainless steel liners and why this is the best.

DAMAGED OR MISSING LINER

masonry chimney If you live in a home that was built over 50 years ago, there is a chance that your chimney does not have any liner. In the 1940’s, the National Board of Standards did a test with unlined chimneys, and they realize it is a dangerous fire hazard. Modern building safety codes and standards now mandate that every chimney be lined. If your chimney is unlined, our team can get your home up to code with a stainless steel liner. We can also remove your old damaged liner and replace it with our durable steel liner.

UPDATED FIREPLACE

If your older fireplace does not provide much heat, you may want to update it with a new fireplace insert. These hearth heating appliances are more energy-efficient, but they are much smaller than masonry chimneys. This size difference can cause the insert to not work as efficiently and safely as it should. All Seasons Chimney can solve this issue by installing a stainless steel liner customized to the size of your insert. You can count on us to do the job properly. Our chimney professionals have the necessary training and experience of relining chimneys.
