The reason we have chimneys is to safely remove the bi-products of burning from a wood burner, wood burning fire, log fire, gas fire and gas stove.This way the fumes are taken from the wood burning, gas or multi-fuel appliance to the outside of our homes without causing any danger or discomfort to the people that live there.
There are a number of reasons why a chimney may need lining:
• The flue is leaking smoke from your wood burning or multi fuel appliance into other rooms in your home
• The flue that is already installed is far too big for the wood burning or multi fuel appliance being used
• The flue is external and is too cold to draw air properly
• Tars and condensates are coming through the chimney in any part of the building and causing staining
There are many different ways of lining a chimney, the suitability of these methods depends on your individual system. You should seek advice from a professional on which solution is the best for you.
