Protect Your Home & Family From Heat & Carbon Monoxide Transfer— Let Us Parge Your Smoke Chamber Smooth
Heat transfer, smoke transfer, and carbon monoxide transfer can be incredibly dangerous, but did you know your smoke chamber could be allowing all three? This inverted funnel portion of your chimney, located just above the firebox, is responsible for funneling smoke, carbon monoxide, and byproducts of combustion into the flue so they can exit the home. But smoke chambers aren’t always effective…
As you can imagine, being located just above the fire has some disadvantages. The smoke chamber is truly in the line of fire and can begin to crack and deteriorate over time, and when this happens, all of those byproducts it’s responsible for venting can be slower to exit the home. As they slow down, they may cool and settle on the walls of the smoke chamber and flue in the form of flammable and corrosive creosote, or they may access the air supply or nearby combustibles through the holes and cracks in the smoke chamber. That transferred heat can cause a house fire and that transferred carbon monoxide can enter the air supply and make you sick. Exposure to carbon monoxide can cause headaches, illness, and even death, and since it’s virtually impossible to detect without a carbon monoxide detector, you may not even know you have a problem.
