Help Restore the Integrity of Your Chimney
HeatShield uses a special “Cerfractory” sealant material that helps restore the integrity of your chimney’s flue. This will allow your chimney to properly vent hazardous flue gases from your home. It will also help eliminate dangers in your chimney such as cracks, gaps, and spalling.
Anatomy of Your Chimney
It doesn’t matter if your chimney is used to vent a woodstove, fireplace or furnace, most have clay flue tile stacked on top of the other, these form a liner called the flue.
Your flue liner should be sealed tightly to protect your chimney. Over time, dangers can develop that that will compromise the efficiency and safety of your home’s chimney.
Are There Any Potential Hidden Dangers in Your Chimney?
Deteriorated mortar joint between flue tiles
Gaps Between Flue Tiles
The combustion process can create noxious gases that may contain soot/creosote, corrosive chemicals and even carbon
monoxide. The goal of having a chimney is to safely remove these hazardous gases from your home.
Flue tiles are usually sealed with mortar to hold these gases within the flue. Over time, the combination of heat, chemicals and moisture erodes the mortar, which leaves voids and gaps between flue tiles.
Cracked Flue Tiles
Often times, flue tiles can crack due to a lightning strike, a chimney fire, or during a seismic event. Cracks can also be cause by poor chimney construction or the shifting of your home.
Spalled flue tiles
Flaking Flue Tiles (Spalling)
Years of exposure to moisture and chemicals from combustion can attack flue tiles, this means that the flue liner can flake off, this is called
How These Dangers May Affect You
Health & Fire Risks
All of these defects can begin a process that will erode the chimney, which can pose a threat to your family’s health. When heat and gases escape from your home’s chimney, they can deteriorate the chimney from the inside out. Cracks and gaps cause health risks by allowing gases to spill into your home.
Soot and creosote can also escape via these opening and build up on the flue liner. If for some reason the creosote caught fire inside of your chimney, damage could occur. The flue tile that flake’s off from that due to spalling can create dangerous blockages within your chimney.
Loss of Efficiency
If you want your Vermont home’s chimneys to work efficiently and correctly, they must be free of gaps, cracks and must be gap tight. Similarly to a straw, if your home has a hole or crack, the liquid will not flow through it correctly.
Cracks and gaps will also allow excess air into your chimney, these slow the updraft and make it harder for gasses and smoke to rise up and out. Because of this, the fireplace, furnace or woodstove will not perform at its optimal level which can result in the loss of heat.
