7 Most Common Chimney Issues

1. Utility Flue Blockages

If your utility flue is blocked or damaged, one possible result is carbon monoxide back drafting into the home, which is extremely dangerous.

2. Carbon Monoxide Leaking Into Home

Outdoor debris or broken flue tiles can block the flue pipe that vents your gas appliances, causing people inside the home to suffer fatal carbon monoxide poisoning.

3. Missing Gas Flue Chimney Cap

All chimneys need a cap, including gas flue caps installed on a gas furnace or hot water heater. Many problem arise when a chimney flue is without a cap.

4. Gas Flue Liner Deterioration

If a gas log fireplace has gaps or cracks in its chimney flue liner, the exhaust will not draw properly, causing a back draft.

5. Condensation 

Flue gas exhaust is saturated with water vapor.  This dampness will speed up damage, otherwise avoided.

6. Efflorescence

Gas chimney water issues damage brickwork, flue liners, and cause a white chalky residue called efflorescence. If you see this substance, then it’s likely damage is already present. 

7. Improper Connectors 

Gas furnaces and water heaters use pipes to attach the appliances to the chimney. If the connectors are improperly installed or damaged, then it will cause drafting and other issues that may allow carbon monoxide (CO) to back up inside the home.

Gas Furnace Chimney Flue Vent Service

What Makes a Gas Furnace Safe?

Gas Chimney Service

What is the Purpose of a Gas Flue Vent?

When properly maintained, your gas flue provides safe and reliable venting of utility flue gases to the outdoors. That way your family can enjoy warm water and heat in the cold months of winter.

Does a Gas Chimney Need Cleaning?

Furnace flues and gas chimneys, like any other part of your home, will offer the least trouble if well maintained. Furnace Flue Servicing is needed every year depending on the type of appliance and gas flue that needs chimney service. 

Cost to Replace Gas Chimney Liner

The cost to replace or repair a gas flue liner system can often be under $2000. The cost of installing a stainless steel liner for a gas flue depends on several factors: 

  • Height of the furnace flue
  • Length of the flue liner
  • BTUs of the gas appliances

All this will affect the cost of a gas chimney repair. Keep in mind the final price will still be far cheaper than the resulting damage or danger of having an improper gas flue liner.

Gas Furnace Maintenance

Furnace flues and water heaters need regular maintenance. Gas furnace chimney liners are exposed to exhaust containing water vapor and acidic materials that damage the gas chimney’s flue tiles. It eats away at the mortar and gas flue tiles in the flue.

For this reason gas appliances need a chimney inspector to visit yearly to evaluate the vent pipes condition and clean sweep the flue if necessary.

What Our Customers Say

“Certified tech who is professional and very thorough. Before starting Chris explained what he would be doing and looking for both inside and outside of the house. He then provided a document showing each part of the fireplace/chimney along with recommended repairs. I will definitely use this company again.”

~ Cassie D.

We had Full Service Chimney reline the chimney on our 35 year old house and put on a new crown. The initial inspector provided photographic evidence of need for repair. We were very satisfied with the quality of the work and the politeness of the two man crew, Jacob and Ian. Jacob, the lead tech, carefully explained all our questions and took pains to avoid disturbing plantings around the chimney base and cleaned up very well after they were finished. We highly recommend this company to others.” 

~ Dick Brown

“Sam did a great job cleaning our chimney in our new house. He was on time, courteous, and very professional. He recommended a few additional services, but also informed me it would not be unsafe to use the chimney until we had the available funds. If we end up fixing, we will absolutely use Full Service Chimney again.”

~ Andy

Everyone was very professional and courteous even when there was a problem with the gas line connection in the fireplace. They stayed until the problem was fixed which delayed their next project. I am very pleased with the results and the professionalism of everyone who worked on the project. 

This was the second project at my home and was very pleased both times.  

I highly recommend them for any chimney problem or project.

~ Beverly Wicker

…thank you to Sam and Full Service Chimney for your discovery and recommendation. What began as a chimney inspection, cleaning, and fix recommendation for our gas powered fireplace turned into a life-saving appointment for me and my family. Unbeknownst to us, carbon monoxide had been pouring into our home for some time through a hidden but corroded hole in the furnace piping. This explained the couple weeks of headaches we had all been experiencing. Sam alerted me to this situation immediately, turning off the furnace and quickly working up some options on how to best proceed. Within 24 hours both the furnace, water heater and piping were replaced, basically saving our lives….
