The chimney is not simply a decorative roof ornament, and a fireplace is not just a feat in home decor. Your chimney is an important part of an entire heating system in your home.
A leaky chimney not only can cause your chimney to work incorrectly, but can also cause extensive damage to the structure of your masonry, flue lining, and mechanical parts of your chimney.
The chimney is essential to the ventilation of harmful gases when using a fuel-burning fireplace or appliance. If your chimney has a leak, it can interrupt the flow of gases, cause drafts, and essentially raise the fire risk in your flue and chimney. A leak can also make the chimney system less efficient, as it disrupts the science that makes it work. To learn more about “How Your Chimney Really Works” visit the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) for invaluable information for homeowners.
A leaky chimney can cause extensive damage to the entire chimney system. It may not seem like a big deal now, with what seems a tiny leak, but preventing future damage is a worth-while investment to your home or business.
