5 Reasons You Need a Chimney Liner, From Kennebunkport's Fireplace Experts, Kennebunkport, Maine

If you enjoy curling up in front of a warm fire on a chilly evening, you should consider installing a chimney liner. It’s a steel, clay, or concrete channel that fits into your chimney and offers a variety of benefits, especially if you use your fireplace frequently. Kennebunkport-based Absolute Chimney Service, the leading fireplace repair and chimney cleaning company in southern Maine, explains what you will gain from this product.

5 Reasons You Need a Chimney Liner

1. Energy Efficiency

A liner insulates the chimney and limits heat loss, keeping your home warmer. It also enables the fire to burn hotter by promoting efficient airflow. This reduces the need to refuel so you can save money on firewood.

2. Fire Prevention

A chimney liner creates a fireproof barrier between the structure and the embers and exhaust of the fire. It lessens the chance of a fire igniting inside the structure and spreading to your house.  

3. Increased Chimney Lifespan

4. Easier Maintenance

The smooth sides of a chimney liner are easier to clean than the uneven surface of a brick and mortar chimney. This makes maintenance easier, less expensive, and less time-consuming.

5. Reduced Creosote Buildup

The interior of a chimney liner collects less soot and creosote than the nooks and crannies of a brick or stone chimney. This reduces accumulation of these extremely flammable substances.
