12/10/2012: Flue liners

A lot of talk about flue liners this week on the street.  Not really — but let’s talk about them anyway.  Flue liners are stainless steel tubes that are installed down the length of your chimney to help prevent exhaust from heating systems and smoke from your fireplace from seeping into the house.  Over time, the brick & mortar inside chimneys deteriorates and crumbles.  Installing a liner is a cheaper, faster alternative to repairing (known as re-pointing) all the brickwork.

We had American Chimney Pros replace our furnace & hot water flue for $1,850 and fireplace flue for $1,650.  Each flue required 30 feet of stainless steel liner.  The job only took 1 day.
