The main purpose of a chimney is to vent the products of combustion from your home. That function is crucial because the products of combustion contain hazardous and noxious gasses. One of the hazardous gasses your chimney needs to remove from your home is carbon monoxide.
The other important function of chimneys, especially those using wood stoves or fireplaces, is to keep excessive heat from combustible materials that surround the chimney. Heat or flames from a chimney fire can escape through cracks in the clay flue liner or through damaged or missing mortar joints of a chimney. They can then ignite surrounding combustible framing members of a house.

A note on carbon monoxide
A chimney functions to remove the byproducts of burning fuel. Carbon monoxide is one of these byproducts. It is a colorless, odorless gas that is a serious health hazard. It causes illness and death if it is inhaled in large amounts. For the safety of your family and guests is critical to that your chimney is maintained properly so that carbon monoxide and other harmful fuel byproducts do not enter your home. Annual inspections are important. Also, you should have carbon monoxide detectors installed on each floor of your home, as well as in sleeping areas. Carbon monoxide detectors can let you know if there are possible problems with the venting systems of your furnace, gas hot water heater, or gas stove and can keep you from being harmed from prolonged exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide.
