Chimney liner or chimney pipe?

Each chimney is unique when it comes to dimensions, age, type and other factors. Only a chimney expert can decide whether you need a chimney liner or chimney pipe.

Decisive factors

Chimney age, type, offset are just a few factors that must be taken into consideration when deciding whether to choose a liner orĀ  a pipe.

The type and age of the chimney furnace must also be taken into consideration. A chimney liner can last for up to 50 years, whilst a chimney pipe must be replaced much more frequently. The type of fuel you use, coal, wood or gas, will also determine if you need a liner or a pipe.

Pipes or liner

There are a lot of factors that must be taken in consideration when deciding what to use. Some types of chimneys can’t have a metal liner installed. Many chimney liners come in kits that also have a warranty which is voided if the liner is not installed by a professional.
