Certain substances should not be put into the fireplace, including treated wood, which can cause toxic fumes--and charcoal, which can create carbon monoxide. Never use lighter fluid or gasoline in a fireplace, as these substances can explode.

Make sure children and pets do not get too close to a fireplace when it's in use. Additionally, glass doors become extremely hot & take a long time to cool down after the fire is out, so be cautious in touching doors.

Each year, thousands of modern heating appliances are vented into damage or outdated masonry chimneys, resulting in poor draft, the disintegration of the chimney and can compromise you and your family's safety.

Liners provide a correctly sized flue for optimum efficiency and safety of heating appliances. The chimney carries toxic gas out of your home. Furnaces, fireplaces, and stoves require a correctly sized flue in order to vent these gases properly. Venting modern appliances through an incorrectly sized masonry chimney allows flue gases to expand and cool inside the chimney which can lead to excessive creosote buildup (the cause of most chimney fires) and the production of carbon monoxide (a potentially deadly gas).

Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. Over time, flue gases and water vapor break down mortar joints from inside the chimney where it is sometimes impossible to see without using special equipment. When mortar joints have eroded or are missing, heat can transfer to nearby combustibles and carbon monoxide can leak into living spaces.
