Chimney Liner Installation & Repair Service

If you are looking for a chimney liner installation or chimney relining services, call the heating experts at Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc.. We can install or replace stainless steel or aluminum chimney liners for homes that do not heat their homes with a wood burning appliance. Even if you don’t use a fireplace or wood–burning stove, the liner in your chimney flue is an important component in your home heating and ventilation system.

If your liner is cracked, it can lead to safety hazards, so call us if you have concerns or if your chimney liner has not been inspected in a while. Updating your heating system is another reason to replace the liner with a stainless steel or aluminum one. You’ll want to ensure that the liner is compatible and safe to use with the new system. Call Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. for all your chimney liner installation and replacement needs.

Chimney Relining Service

In homes that are heated with a gas furnace or boiler, the liner protects the chimney from damages caused by combustion gases vented through the chimney. The flue liner also prevents the gases from entering the living space. While natural gas is typically a safe and efficient heating fuel, upgrading to a more modern furnace or boiler can cause problems if the chimney is unlined or has an older clay or tile liner.

Stainless Steel Liners

Stainless steel liners are recommended for many types of heating systems, but in some areas, local codes require these liners to be used with certain types of gas heating systems. For better performance and efficiency, the stainless steel liners should be insulated properly. Stainless steel liners can also be made of more flexible material for chimneys that have offsets or jogs in them, and liners that contain titanium add further protection from corrosion.

Aluminum Liners

If you are trying to decide between an aluminum chimney liner and a stainless steel liner, check with one of our chimney relining experts. We have 40 years of experience in this business, and we can help you make the right choice for your particular home and HVAC system. Call Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. any time if you have questions.

When is it Time to Replace a Chimney Liner?

Many homeowners are unaware that it is time to reline the chimney in their home. There are a few reasons that it could be time for a chimney relining service. Here are a few potential scenarios in which you may need to replace a chimney liner:

 

  • After upgrading a combustion heating system, such as a gas furnace or boiler, with a high–efficiency heating appliance or heat pump
  • If there are known issues with the old liner being installed improperly or sized incorrectly, or if the chimney does not have a liner
  • After installing a new hot water system that vents through an oversized or older chimney that does not have the proper lining
  • If you do not know when your chimney was last inspected by a qualified technician

 

 Call the heating experts at Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. if you have any questions about your home’s heating or ventilation system.
