Your Furnace Or Water Heater May Need Relining, Too! We Can Help

Chimneys aren’t just for fireplaces. That’s right, there are more appliances out there that vent out harmful vapors and use a chimney to do so – like your furnace and water heater. Just like your fireplace chimney, these systems may need to be relined at some point.

And just like you rely on English Sweep, Inc. for chimney relining, you can count on us for water heater and furnace flue relining, too! We’re certified with the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), and we’d love to assist you.

Common Problems With Furnace and Water Heater Liners

So, how do you know it’s time to reline?

One of the biggest reasons to reline is inefficiency, and this typically happens when the liner isn’t appropriately sized or installed. You won’t get those high levels of performance you’re hoping for from your water heater or furnace, and your system will have to work a lot harder to produce good results. All of this results in less comfort for you, higher energy bills (since everything’s working overtime), and an increased risk of your unit wearing out prematurely.

Another reason relining may be needed is when fuel types are changed. Not all fuels are compatible with certain liner materials, and it can invite any number of issues if this isn’t accounted for in the beginning.

Other times, the liner is simply damaged due to all of the corrosive byproducts that escape these systems. If the system isn’t cleaned out regularly or professionally maintained, decay and deterioration are bound to occur, and a new liner will be needed in order for the appliance to operate safely.

Finally, if the liner is missing altogether, it’s definitely time to get one installed. Without a liner in place at all, you face potential fire hazards, an increased risk of carbon monoxide exposure, and other potential threats.
