Smoke and Draft Problems:
We offer effective solutions for fireplaces and woodstoves that cause smoke problems inside your home.
Exhausto Chimney Fans
Chimney fans are designed to disperse the smoke sideways but with the same asthetics as a typical chimney cap.
Chimney Flue Liners
A clay, ceramic, or metal conduit installed inside of a chimney, intended to contain the combustion products, direct them to the outside atmosphere, and protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion. A flue liner not only optimizes efficiency, but also protects the house from heat transfer from combustibles.
Clay Tiles are the most common type of masonry chimney liners. They are inexpensive, readily available, and perform quite well for open fireplace chimneys that are properly maintained.
Metal chimney liners are made of stainless steel or aluminium making them extremely safe and durable. Stainless steel is suitable for wood-burning, gas, or oil appliances, while the aluminum is an inexpensive alternative for certain medium efficiency gas applications only. It is usually required that high temperature insulation be used in conjunction with the liner for safety and performance considerations.
Cast-in-place chimney liners are lightweight, cement like products that are installed inside the chimney forming a smooth, seamless, insulated passageway for the flue gasses. They can improve the structural integrity of aging chimneys, and are permanent liners suitable for all fuels.
The small flap inside the flue, dampers are an important means of directing smoke up and out of the chimney and preventing downdrafts. A warped damper could be pulling your indoor air out and decreasing your home's efficiency. It could also push smoke into your living space.
