Preventing Gas Leaks
One major purpose of a chimney liner to stop harmful fumes and gases from eating away at your brickwork and mortar. What this damage eventually does is create easy pathways for smoke and dangerous gases to escape into your home. One of these threats comes in the form of carbon monoxide, which is colorless, odorless, and known for causing hundreds of deaths every single year.

Avoiding House Fires
Another reason why liners are so important is to protect your home from experiencing fire damage. The heat from your fires is intense and, when your home’s woodwork is exposed to these high temperatures, it could only take a matter of hours before it catches on fire. This threatens the lives of people inside of the home, and it will leave you with thousands of dollars in property damage, as well [https://www.csia.org/chimney_liners.html].
Improving Overall Efficiency
The threats of a faulty liner are real and, when it comes right down to it, your fireplace simply cannot function as well when things are not properly installed. Inefficiency can lead to all of the things mentioned above, as well as excess creosote accumulation, and it isn’t worth running a fireplace if you are not getting the most you can from it.
