Why is a Chimney Liner Necessary?

Gas fired heating appliances produce low temperature, high moisture content flue gas which collect as acidic condensate on the inside of oversized, cold masonry chimneys. It is this condensate that is the primary cause of masonry chimney deterioration which creates a serious health hazard as well as costly home repairs. 

Liners Help Prevent Chimney Deterioration

Installing a lightweight, properly sized, metal chimney liner will help create efficient, condensate free venting. Insulating the liner is recommended and will further enhance operation of the venting system. 

Chimney Liner Material

Aluminum, with a half century usage history, has proven to be an economical, effective material for venting gas fired equipment. Stainless steel is a good choice as well but is substantially more expensive but offers a Lifetime Warranty.

Why Should Quality Fireplace Install/Maintain Your Liner?

A qualified heating or chimney contractor is the best person to install this type of product.  There are several technical details which must be addressed before a liner is installed.  A gas liner should be checked at least once a year by a qualified technician to ensure that the system is venting properly without condensation occurring.
