Chimney Relining NJ
Chimney Liners And Their Importance:
Safe, code-compliant chimney liners protect a masonry chimney’s walls from heat, potential damage and corrosion from combustion byproducts. This is why chimney relining is a key part of keeping your home safe from fire.
The National Bureau of Standards’ (NBS) tests revealed that in unlined chimneys or in chimney liners that have been compromised due to age or a seismic event, highly acidic flue gases often penetrated the brick and mortar, eating away at the chimney’s mortar joints and allowing heat to transfer more rapidly to nearby combustibles. This means that dangerous flue gases such as carbon monoxide and sulfuric acid can leak into the living areas of the home. In the NBS’s tests of unlined chimneys or a deficient lining system, adjacent woodwork or framing member caught fire in only 3 1/2 hours, which is why appropriate chimney liners and chimney relining are so important.
Recommended Chimney Liners:
1. Stainless Steel These chimney liners are used primarily in liner upgrades and repairs, stainless steel liners provide safety, performance and durability. Stainless steel liners are used for wood-burning fireplaces, oil or gas furnaces and wood stoves. They also come with a lifetime transferable warranty from the manufacturer at the time of sale or transfer of property.
2. Aluminum Aluminum chimney liners are used as an inexpensive lining alternative as opposed to stainless steel and for use primarily for medium efficiency gas furnaces or hot water tanks only. They cannot be used in fireplaces, wood stoves, oil fired appliances or hi efficiency applications as per the NFPA211 code which governs the National Fire Protection Agency.
