Renovation of the flue

Renovation of the flue

Each hearth produces waste materials, also referred to as flue gases. These combustion gases must be properly and safely disposed of. This happens through a drain, or a flue. Such flue is very important and must also meet a number of requirements:
• The flue must be fire-retardant enough
• The flue may have to walk as straight as
• The channel may contain bends up to 45 degrees. Bends reduce the flow of flue gases and provide greater yields of tar and soot deposits on the inside of the channel.
• The channel should be above the roof
• The flue must be built according to the applicable standards and regulations

The flue is an important part of your fireplace. If there is something wrong with the drain, it is important that it be replaced. Otherwise you run the risk of chimney fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. This undoubtedly will cost more than just repair your chimney.
