Important Steps for Successful
Chimney Liner Installation
Chimney liners prevent the possible damage that the leaking smoke, fumes
and gases may cause to your house’s interiors and decors. They are also
significant in significantly reducing the chances of chimney fires. More than
anything else, chimney liners ensure that the health of your family members
is not affected in any negative way. To achieve each of these benefits of
chimney lining, good care must be taken while installing the same. Find out
some important steps and considerations in this regard.
Know Your Chimney
To begin with, it is important that you get your chimney thoroughly
inspected to know about the bends and other important details. An expert can
help you in this with the help of CCTV cameras and other useful equipments.
With precise understanding of your chimney design and liner requirements,
you can invest in the right kind of product.
Choose the Best Liner
For long-lasting and fool-proof
chimney lining installation, it is
important to choose the best possible
option available in the market.
Flexible liners made of stainless steel
are among the most preferred options
these days. Another good choice is
the liners made of ceramic-based
eldfast which offers many unique advantages. Consult the experts and people
in your social contacts to arrive at the best decision.
Take Care of Measurements
An important step is to measure the flue diameter to ensure that the liner you
install fits in perfectly. Equal attention must be paid to the length of the liner.
It is usually recommended to keep the liner’s length few inches more to
avoid any miscalculations. Again, an expert is required to make these
calculations accurate. A local hardware store can also help you refer to the
liner size charts.
Choosing the Best Services
Self-installation of the chimney liners may not lead to
the desired results, especially if you have no prior
experience in this direction. It is better to hire an
expert service provider who has the right knowledge
of dealing with different types of liners. A good idea
would be to choose the liner as well as the installation
services from the same service provider.
Here are some important things to keep in mind:
Find out whether the service provider abides by the regulations and
norms suggested by the Heating Equipment Testing and Approval
Scheme (HETAS) or not.
Ask the service provider whether they know and follow the Building
Regulations, legal requirements and safety norms or not.
Have a look at the products that the vendor offers. Make sure that you
find out the top quality products for your chimney.
Refer to the credentials and testimonials of the service provider.
Compare the quotes and prices for the liners and installation services to
pay the best price.
Once the chimney liner is installed, the next step is
to test its performance and functioning. Your
expert installation service provider may also assist
you with air pressure testing and other similar
procedures. Also learn about the things for
cleaning and maintaining the liner.
As you can see, simple and small steps can make
the big difference in granting success for chimney
liner installation and bring back the right returns
for your investments.
