Installation of Chimney / Flue Linings

Chimney and Flue Linings

Chimney and flue lining solutions have gained significant popularity in recent times. Notably, these options also offer cost-effectiveness. A well-crafted liner from a reputable brand can can last from 10 to 25 years, depending upon its usage. 

Why would you need a Chimney/Flue lining?


Improved Safety: 

Linings protect the interior of the chimney structure from high temperatures, combustion byproducts, and the corrosive effects of flue gases. This helps prevent the risk of chimney fires and the potential release of harmful gases into living spaces.


Improved Draft:

A properly sized and insulated chimney lining can improve the draft within the chimney, which is essential for efficient and effective combustion. It helps ensure that smoke, gases, and particles are directed out of the chimney and away from the interior of the home.


Condensation Prevention:

In certain cases, flue gases can cool down quickly within a cold chimney, leading to the formation of condensation. This moisture can mix with creosote and cause damage to the chimney structure over time. A lining with appropriate insulation can minimise this condensation.


Reduced Creosote Build Up:

Creosote, a sticky substance produced during combustion, can accumulate on the interior walls of the chimney. A smooth and properly insulated chimney lining can reduce the buildup of creosote, which is a major cause of chimney fires.


Extended Chimney Lifespan:

Linings help protect the chimney's masonry or structural components from the corrosive effects of flue gases, which can deteriorate the chimney over time. This prolongs the lifespan of the chimney and reduces the need for extensive repairs.


Flexibility and Adaptability: 

Liners can be installed to accommodate various heating appliances, such as wood-burning stoves, fireplaces, gas appliances, and oil-burning furnaces. This flexibility ensures that the chimney can effectively handle different types of combustion systems.
