Chimney Liners Should Be Replaced When Cracked

Chimney liners are a necessary component of any chimney which can be made out of different types of metal or clay tiles. Should you have an older home with a clay liner it will wear out over time as the tiles crack. You should replace the liner in order to prevent combustible materials from being able to leak out through the cracks. Improperly sealed or cracked liners also increase the likelihood of a fire as escaping heat and other combustible products to get into the living spaces of the home.

Chimney Liners Come in Different Sizes and Types

When replacing chimney liners it is important to get the correct size liner and finding one which is also insulated is important. Insulated liners help keep the chimney cleaner longer as well as increase the draft effect for your fireplace or wood burning stove. You can find both rigid and flexible liners available from Copperfield Chimney Supply .
