For Smokey Stacks And Clean Homes
Although a chimney may appear simple in design, the humble chimney plays an important role. Very few of us today think about household air pollution from poorly vented smoke as a factor. However, 4.3 million people a year die prematurely from illness attributable to the household air pollution from open fires. So it is important to get smoke ventilation right. Stoves without chimneys, or even poorly constructed chimneys can be a real health hazard.
This is not the only hazard when it comes to chimneys either, especially if you live in an older property. While older chimneys may have stood the test of time, in many cases, they are not the best for venting more modern stoves. With an older chimney, cracking, leaning, leaking and creosote/tar build-up can all cause major safety problems. Some of these safety problems may include the risk of chimney fire, bad ventilation, and structural damage. This is why it’s important to not only make sure you have the right chimney, but keep on top of chimney repair and maintenance.
