Chimney flue liners – log burners supplied and fitted in Taunton, Bridgwater, & Somerset.
Chimney flue lining is an important part of a HETAS-compliant stove installation. Glowing Stoves in Taunton always use a flexible flue liner with all “existing chimney” stove installations. If your stove is a multifuel stove or a wood-burning stove, it will burn far better with a flue liner.
Why should I use a flue liner?
Using a chimney liner offers several benefits for the safety, efficiency, and longevity of your chimney and fireplace system. Here are some reasons why you should consider using a chimney liner:
- Improved Safety: A flue liner helps contain the heat and combustion byproducts within the chimney. Also, this reduces the risk of heat transfer to combustible materials surrounding the chimney structure. This helps prevent chimney fires. Also, this reduces the chances of carbon monoxide entering your living space.
- Enhanced Draft and Efficiency: A properly sized flue liner can improve the draft, which is the flow of air up the chimney. This better draft can improve the efficiency of your fireplace or wood-burning stove. Because it helps pull smoke and gases out of the chimney much more effectively.
- Condensation Prevention: Without a chimney flue liner, there’s a higher chance of moisture condensation within the chimney. Furthermore, this can lead to the deterioration of the chimney structure and the formation of creosote. Creosote is a highly flammable substance that can cause chimney fires.
- Protection of Masonry: For chimneys made of brick or other masonry materials, a flue liner provides protection against the corrosive effects of burning. Over time, these byproducts can erode and damage the masonry. This may compromise the structural integrity of the chimney.
- Easier Cleaning: A smooth and properly installed flue liner makes chimney cleaning easy. Because creosote buildup and debris are less likely to adhere to the liner’s surface. This makes maintenance and cleaning more efficient.
- Versatility: Chimney flue liners are available in different sizes. This allows you to choose a liner that suits your stove. And also, the type of fuel you use in your fireplace or stove.
- Compliance with Codes and Regulations: Many building codes and regulations require the use of chimney liners. Using a quality flue liner helps ensure your chimney system meets safety and building standards.
- Proper Sizing: Chimney liners can be sized to match the heating appliance you’re using. Because proper flue sizing ensures that the chimney and stove operate at their optimal efficiency. Furthermore, this reduces the risk of drafting issues or poor combustion.
- Longevity of the Chimney: A liner will extend the lifespan of your chimney. This helps protect it from the corrosive effects of smoke.
Overall, a chimney liner is a valuable investment. Also, a flue liner will affect the safety, efficiency, and durability of your chimney and fireplace system.
