According to NFPA. 211, If the flue liner in a chimney has softened, cracked, or otherwise deteriorated so that it no longer has the continued ability to contain the products of combustion (i.e., heat, moisture, creosote, and flue gases), the liner shall be either removed and replaced, re- paired, or relined with a listed liner system or other approved material that will resist corrosion, softening, or cracking from flue gases at temperatures appropriate to the class of chimney service.
1. First, the chimney liner protects your home, your possessions, and most importantly, your family from the dangers of chimney flue gasses causing a chimney fire.
2. Second, liners ensure that any by-products from combustion are directed out into the atmosphere and not corroding the interior of the chimney walls. Such corrosion allows for deadly gases, such as carbon monoxide, to leak into the interior of your home.
3. Finally, Chimney Liners ultimately save you money by ensuring that your appliances are running at optimum efficiency.
