Wood Stove Lining
The control of a log burner allows you to slow the movement of smoke inside the chimney flue. Cooling smoke turns to creosote which can seep into the very structure of an old brick chimney, making it impossible to clean properly and increasing the chance of a chimney fire. As with all types of fuel, carbon monoxide is released when burning wood. Installing a smaller dedicted chimney flue liner for a wood burner ensures that the flue gasses and smoke are kept as hot as possible until it reaches the top of the chimney which reduces soot build up within the flue while giving a more efficient wood fire. We always insulate the brick void around stainless steel liiners using vermiculite back fill to ensure the hottest flue gasses possible are achieved. Insulating the liner reduces condensation build up around the flue and noise from the chimney stack, especially in high winds.
Fitting a wood burning appliance to an old brick chimney without relining with an insulated stainless steel flexible liner is very hit and miss and so can be very dangerous.
