Our Smoke Chamber Repairs Can Boost The Safety & Efficiency Of Your Chimney & Fireplace
Fireplace efficiency and safety largely depends on the condition of each chimney component – from the firebox all the way up to the chimney cap. But the smoke chamber, which is the upside down funnel located above the firebox and below the flue is one of the biggest factors in chimney safety and efficiency. This area is responsible for capturing the heat, smoke, and gases produced by the fire in the firebox and escorting them into the chimney flue so they can exit the home swiftly.
Why Should A Damaged Smoke Chamber Be Repaired?
The smoke chamber is designed in the shape of an upside down funnel and given a smooth surface to make it more effective at its job, but time and abuse can take a toll on the smoke chamber and leave it in shabby condition. Damage can range from cracks here and there to holes and rough and crumbling surfaces, all of which can allow heat, embers, smoke, and byproducts to come into contact with nearby combustibles and enter the air supply. Additionally, if the smoke chamber is rough and corbeled, it will cause resistance and slow down the exit of these byproducts. Is a damaged smoke chamber threatening the safety and efficiency of your chimney and fireplace? Let us help.
