GAS FURNACE FLUE CLEANING AND RELINING
If you have been doing several research with regards to chimney flue systems, or you have had inspection of chimney by a certified technician, there is a good chance that you have heard about flue cleaning and relining. Ensuring that your flue is appropriately sized for a water heater or a furnace is important so that you can ensure that harmful flue is gassing from the furnaces, with the water heaters being appropriately vented from your home. Energy efficiency and technology advancement have made a perfect storm for venting water heaters and gas furnaces improperly, because homes are becoming tighter and tighter to air exchange to the outside air for keeping the warm air in and the cold air out, and thus, homes are developing negative air pressure with relation to the outside.

CHIMNEY CAPS DAMPERS AND RAIN PANS
Having a high quality chimney cap is among the best things that you will be able to do for the long-term life of your chimney. They have great versatility that we recommend for every chimney flue to be covered with a copper or stainless steel chimney cap. Together with the regular cap, top mounted damper caps have been an outstanding replacement or upgrade to the damper system of your chimney.
Chimney caps are keeping debris and animals out of the chimney. Racoons, squirrels, and little birds called chimney swifts will be nesting happily in chimneys if they are allowed to. All these animals, together with their droppings carry diseases that do harm to pets and humans, and their nests will be able to prevent furnaces and fireplaces from drawing in a proper way, and they will be forcing carbon monoxide and smoke back into the house. In the neighborhoods with trees, there are organic debris that can block a chimney flue that has no protection easily. Through time, water and rain will do thousands of dollars of damage to the masonry work. For the reason that physical structures are porous, they are going to absorb rainwater on their surface. A cap will make sure that rain would roll away against the waterproof crown and from the opening of flue, in which it will not absorb or collect into the chimney structure.
