HeatShield, Supaflu, and Stainless Steel – Oh My!

If you want your chimney to function at its highest levels of efficiency and safety, you need to be sure all of its components are in good working condition. One of the most essential components of a chimney system is the liner because of the important roles it serves. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) , a chimney liner protects the combustible parts of your home from heat transfer, keeps the bricks and mortar joints safe from corrosive combustion gases, and provides a properly sized flue for your fireplace or other hearth heating appliance. Even though HeatShield, Supaflu, and Stainless Steel - Greer SC - Chim Cheree Chimneymost chimney liners are built to be durable and long-lasting, they can suffer from damage over the years that can cause them to not perform their duties. For the past 40 years, Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists has provided chimney relining services, including HeatShield, Supaflu, and stainless steel liners, to the Upstate South Carolina region as part of our professional chimney maintenance, repair, and installation services.
