The reasons for which you should have a chimney properly lined :
A chimney relining is necessary for three main reasons:
1) It safeguards your house from heat transfer to combustibles. For example, the adjacent woodwork caught fire in only three and a half hours in unlined chimneys. Liners protect vents from this rapidly moving heat.
2) For instance, it protects your brick and mortar from creosote and other byproducts of combustion. When highly acidic flue gases are left to eat away at chimney brick and mortar joints, there’s a reduction in the chimney’s usable life. Weakened mortar joints also allow heat to transfer more quickly to combustibles, putting homeowners at increased risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
3) It provides you with a just-right-sized chimney flue for optimum efficiency and reduced creosote buildup. Depending on the type of heating appliance you have—a wood stove, gas or oil furnace, etc.—you will need to have a specific-sized flue for your device to perform at its best. Therefore, combustion products should safely escape your house while your chimney draft enough to supply the appliance.
