Having Your Gas Or Oil Chimney Relined

When your flue liner is damaged, it can seriously threaten the safety of your home and family. Cracks and gaps in the liner, no matter how small, can: affect air flow and efficiency; allow smoke and gases to leak back into the home instead of going out of the chimney; let sparks and hot ash into the insulation and framing of the home; and leak carbon monoxide into your air supply. All of these possibilities can cause serious problems within your home, from fires to carbon monoxide poisoning and unexpectedly high utility bills. To protect yourself from these threats, it is wise to have your chimney system annually inspected and checked for damage and deterioration.

If your chimney sweep notices any cracks or breaks within your chimney liner and you have a gas appliance, you can choose from stainless steel or aluminum when relining your flue. Aluminum is typically cheaper than stainless steel, but can only be used with gas appliances. Aluminum is also not as durable and will need to be replaced more often.

If there is a possibility that you may change your fuel type in the future, it would be wise to go with stainless steel as it is typically safe for use with all fuel types. If you have an oil appliance and are looking to reline your flue, you should most assuredly go with a stainless steel liner as well. Although it can be pricey, stainless steel is able to withstand incredibly high heat and can last a long time when properly installed and maintained.
