Chimney Installations

Chimney Installation Services

Southern Chimney and Fireplace staff are trained and certified to install chimney pipe, stovepipe, chimney liners and even masonry chimney flue. Different types of wood and gas burning appliances all take different types of wood burning or gas burning appliances will all take different types of chimney systems. For example wood stoves generally take class A chimneys whereas prefab manufactured fireplaces will usually take air cooled chimney pipes. 

Some gas units use B venting where other units will take 4×6 or 5×8 direct vent pipe. We often encounter the wrong chimney or vent used or incorrect installations. It’s important that chimney installers are knowledgeable and experienced so that installations are done according to building code and are safe.

What Is a Chimney Liner & Why is it Needed?

 

A chimney liner is the material used to carry smoke and exhaust out of your chimney. Masonry construction typically uses a clay flue tile, although metal chimney flues are common today. Your chimney flue or chimney liner not only needs to efficiently carry out the combustion by-products, but also needs to keep heat from the inside of the chimney from transferring through to the combustible components of your home. This proves especially crucial in the event of a chimney fire.

 

Southern Chimney and Fireplace has performed chimney relining in many homes in northeast Georgia- from Blairsville, to Gainesville, and from Dahlonega to Athens. Your chimney flue or chimney liner not only needs to efficiently carry out the combustion by-products, but also needs to keep heat from the inside of the chimney from transferring through to the combustible components of your home.

 

A simple chimney inspection will reveal the condition of your flue liner. Sometimes, cracks in the tile can be difficult to see from the top or bottom. In some cases, a video inspection may be needed. All new high-efficiency wood burning appliances need a chimney liner that is appropriately sized for the appliance.
