A chimney’s primary function is to exhaust your home’s combustion byproducts. This function is essential because to the toxic and harmful gases that are included in the combustion products. Carbon monoxide is one of the dangerous gases that your chimney must remove from your house.
The prevention of excessive heat from combustible items around the chimney is another crucial role of chimneys, particularly those used with wood stoves or fireplaces. A clay flue liner fracture or a chimney’s broken or missing mortar joints might let heat or flames from a chimney fire escape. The nearby flammable home framing members may then catch fire as a result.

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.
