Due to their heightened efficiency, eco-friendly status, and easy-to-maintain nature, wood-burning inserts have become a go-to choice for many homeowners in recent years. That being said, there are a number of dangerous issues that can occur if you are running a wood-burning insert with an unlined flue.

Protecting Your Woodworkchimney billowing smoke

Liners are essential for protecting your adjacent woodwork from catching on fire. They provide an extra layer of protection so that the flames and extreme temperatures from your fireplace cannot reach other parts of your home. Professional tests have shown that it would only take a few hours for this to occur!

Why take any chances? Let us set you up.

Protecting Your Masonry

The acidic gases and smoke your fires produce can also break down your brickwork and mortar significantly. The more your masonry deteriorates, the more prone you become to gas leaks, house fires, and even chimney collapses. All in all, your fireplace will be unsafe to use, and your entire household will be a lot more vulnerable, as well.

Play it safe by having us check things over today. We would be happy to do a thorough inspection to ensure you are good to go when cooler temperatures come back around.
