What’s So Great About Stainless Steel Flue Liners?

The chimney liner is a critical part of your chimney system. Most homeowners aren’t aware that the byproducts of oil- and gas-burning appliances are just as bad for your chimney as those from burning solid fuels. All of these byproducts can easily deteriorate a chimney. It is the chimney liner that provides the homeowner with extra protection and keeps dangerous particles and smoke out of the home’s air supply.

Your chimney’s flue needs to be able to carry heat and gases safely up, out, and away from the chimney. Without a quality liner, that simply won’t happen. A stainless steel chimney liner will help ensure that your chimney performs as safely and as efficiently as it should, and is an especially great option for those with older, linerless chimneys. The liner fits inside the chimney flue and protects the interior bricks and mortar from the soot, creosote and high heat of fire. Stainless steel liners tend to collect less of these byproducts than other liners, making them much easier to keep clean as well.

Increase Your Heating Appliance’s Operating Efficiency

Chimney liners also improve fireplace efficiency by providing a properly sized chimney flue. If the flue happens to be too big or too small, it can hinder the flow of air in and out of the system, which can cause problems with your draft. This can lead to smoke billowing into your home rather than up and out of your chimney when fires are burned.

Stainless steel liners are popular because they come in a variety of sizes and can be installed to work with a variety of appliance types and sizes. Whether you’re burning wood, gas, oil or pellet fuel, a stainless steel liner can offer you the protection you need.

Stainless Steel Liners Are Built To Last

Stainless steel flue liners resist corrosion, rusting and staining, and come with a Lifetime Warranty which has aided in their popularity. They are available in rigid and flexible forms and as well as varying grades and material thicknesses.

Flexible stainless liners can come in handy when dealing with a chimney that isn’t perfectly straight. Most flexible steel liners can be customized to fit any offsets that may exist inside your chimney, making them especially helpful in certain applications.

A stainless steel chimney liner will provide a strong, durable lining in the chimney and can act as a barrier against gases, moisture and masonry damage. Having your new stainless steel liner wrapped in insulation is another way to help keep heat in the chimney and a steady draft flowing up and out.
