Stainless Steel Chimney

"I have a file that says 'chimney'," said Bonnie Ford, a professional organizer, who got a fast education about chimneys at her former home in Fair Lawn.

Chimney liners should be used in your wood burning fireplace chimney. Older chimneys were often built without a liner. The problem with these types of chimneys is that without a liner, your fireplace may end up drawing more air in from the inside, while allowing the heated air to go up and out the chimney.

When you are looking at Napoleon wood stoves for installing in your home, you will also need to consider your venting requirements. You will need some sort of chimney to vent the wood stove. You can choose to run your chimney along an exterior wall or up an interior wall.

There are different types of chimney pipe available for venting your gas and wood burning fireplaces and stoves. Wood burning units require piping which are made from stainless steel in order to prevent deterioration when burning wood.

When you have a wood stove you will need to run a chimney from the stove out through the roof of your home. Modern stoves do not require that you place them near an exterior wall of the home. You can place your wood stove in the interior of the home and use chimney pipe by running it through an interior wall out through your roof. You can also run piping to an existing fireplace chimney as an alternative method for venting the wood stove.

There Are Two Different Types of Chimney Connector Pipe

There are two different types of chimney connector pipe available for wood burning stoves on our website, here at New Energy Distributing. You can choose from single wall stove pipe and double wall stove pipe. Both types of stove pipe can be used with all types of wood burning stoves and is available in six, seven, or eight inch diameters.

Chimney liners are available in different diameters for different types of wood burning stoves and fireplaces. You can find liners available in both six inch and eight inch diameters. The lengths of liners will vary depending upon whether you are using a flexible liner or a rigid liner. Rigid liners are solid pieces which do not bend and need to be connected together. When you need a long length liner, flexible liners can be a better solution, since these are available in longer sections and reduce the risk of accidentally dropping the liner down the chimney.

Elbows Are Special Pieces Used With Some Chimney Liners

In order to connect chimney liners, like those available on our website, here at New Energy Distributing to your wood burning fireplace or stove, you may require special sections of liner pieces. These pieces are referred to as elbows and help you navigate around corners. There are slightly angled elbows available as well as 90 degree elbows for square corners which can be used along with straight sections of liners.

A stainless steel chimney liner provides an enclosed space for smoke and other fumes from a fire to be exhausted to the outside of your home. Many older homes with brick chimneys often did not include a liner. Without a liner, soot, creosote and other deposits can quickly build up, which requires more frequent cleanings. By adding an insulated liner, you will cut down the speed at which deposits build up, while also creating a better draft.

Deciding Between a Rigid and a Flexible Stainless Steel Chimney Liner

When you are installing a stainless steel chimney liner, like those available on our website, here at New Energy Distributing, you need to decide between rigid and flexible styles. Rigid styles are ideal when you only have one story to run the chimney and have no corners to go around. Flexible liners are better suited when lining the chimney for two or more stories or when you have corners to navigate the liner around.

Chimney pipe is required for venting different types of fireplaces and appliances in your home. Certain types of older homes with fireplaces often have brick and clay chimneys along the exterior of the home. Newer model homes can use steel piping for chimneys instead, which allows the fireplace to be placed in the interior of the home and away from exterior walls. Placing the fireplace in the interior provides better heating efficiency and keeps more heat in the home, instead of going up and out the chimney.

Replace Chimney Pipe with Compatible Replacement Pieces

When replacing chimney pipe it is important that you look for steel piping, like is available on our website, here at New Energy Distributing, which is compatible with your existing fireplace or other type of appliance. The reason you want compatible piping is to prevent gaps between pieces as well as ensure snug connections to prevent smoke and other gases from escaping out of the chimney.

There are different types of chimney liners which you can use to line your chimney. When you are converting your wood burning fireplace to a gas burning fireplace and using the existing chimney as a vent, it is a good idea to install a flexible aluminum liner. You do not need to insulate the liner when using aluminum gas vent pipe.

Use Stainless Steel Chimney Liners with Today's Modern Fireplaces

Many older homes with fireplaces do not have any type of chimney liner installed because they have brick chimneys. However, with today's modern heating efficient fireplaces, it is important to install stainless steel chimney liners, available on our website, here at New Energy Distributing, which will fit into the existing brick chimney. You should also insulate the liner to ensure that temperatures are kept constant and insulation also helps slow down the buildup of creosote.

When you need to reline your chimney, one option is to use a stainless steel chimney liner. This type of liner comes in two different styles, which are rigid and flexible, depending upon your needs. Rigid styles are good when you have a straight chimney without offsets. Flexible liners are better and easier to install when you have a chimney that has offsets.

Get the Right Size Stainless Steel Chimney Liner Using Your Chimney's Dimensions

When you need a new stainless steel chimney liner, which his available on our website, here at New Energy Distributing, you will need to know the diameter of the flue collar of the appliance you are connecting. It is never a good idea to reduce the size of the flue on a wood burning appliance.
