We Can Restore Your Smoke Chamber With Chamber-Tech 2000
Your smoke chamber lies just above your fireplace, an upside down funnel-shaped area that leads up into the flue. This area is designed to encourage smoke and combustion byproducts to enter the flue and exit the chimney swiftly, so that creosote is not deposited along the walls of the smoke chamber and flue.
As you can imagine, this area sees a lot of heat and corrosive byproducts, which can lead to premature deterioration – especially if the smoke chamber is made of corbelled brick, as was popular for many years. Because of the corbel pattern, smoke and byproducts can actually be delayed in their exit, leading to creosote deposit and damage to the smoke chamber itself. The more creosote that settles and the more damage that is done, the less effective the smoke chamber will be and the more safety and efficiency issues you’ll have.
If the corbelled design of your smoke chamber is causing your system to be inefficient or to allow smoke to waft back into your home, or if holes and cracks in your smoke chamber are decreasing the safety and efficiency of your system, ChimneyTEK can help. We specialize in parging smoke chambers smooth, and can restore your system to peak performance once more.
