Why It Is Important to Insulate a Wood Stove Liner

When it comes to heating your home, being as energy efficient as possible is important. This helps lower your heating costs and makes your home as warm and comfortable as possible, during a cold winter season. Atlas Chimney wants to help our customers increase the energy efficiency in their homes. So, we offer several professional services that can help you save money and get more heat in your home! One of these services is insulating chimney liners for wood-burning stoves and other hearth heating appliances. We would like to tell you more about the importance of insulating a wood stove liner and other services that can increase the energy efficiency in your home.

What are the benefits of insulating a wood stove liner?

According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), your chimney needs to draft properly to function efficiently. In order to have a good chimney draft, you need heat in the chimney. When Atlas Chimney insulates your wood stove liner, your chimney will stay hot enough for the combustion gases to rise and be exhausted out of the chimney. Insulating a wood stove liner also helps to vent cleanly. This will cut down on condensation occurring inside the chimney. A decrease in condensation will greatly cut back on the amount of creosote accumulation on the inner walls of your chimney. This is very important because creosote is so flammable that the CSIA has named it as a leading cause of chimney fires!

How else can Atlas Chimney help make my home more energy efficient?

One of our favorite ways to increase energy efficiency? Install a top-mounted damper at the top of the chimney as a replacement to the traditional throat damper. Since a top-mounted damper is equipped with a silicone rubber gasket, it provides an airtight seal of your chimney. You will not have to worry about your air conditioned cold air escaping out through the chimney. Another professional service we offer that increases energy efficiency? Cleaning your dryer vent systems. Our certified technicians make sure every bit of lint is removed from your dryer vent. This helps keep your clothes dryer working at its most efficient! Clogged dryer vents can make you have to run your dryer longer to completely dry a load of clothes. This is why you should have your vent professionally cleaned at least once a year.
