Whether we are talking about car tires, hair dryers or chimney liners, or even anything in between, the same rule applies. The cheaper the solution the poorer the quality is of the product you’ll get. “The first thing any buyer in the market for a chimney liner needs to understand is that not all chimney liners are the same. There are many manufacturers of chimney liners pushing their products into the market and while there are manufacturers’ installations when it comes to chimney liners, not all manufacturers adhere to these guidelines. The worst thing you can do is so assume that they are all the same and that you’ve simply stumbled onto a bargain when you do find a chimney liner that is much more affordable,” explains John Burdis, the owner of Suffolk Stove Installations.
Their team only relies on chimney liners made by the most trusted and reputed manufacturer in the UK, when they do a chimney liner installation at any of their clients. He explains that you will never be able to purchase a premium quality liner and a much cheaper liner and enjoy the same kind of service from them both. It just doesn’t work that way.
Burdis then also explains that there are predominantly two types of flue liners. The one is 316-grade stainless steel and the other is 904-grade. While the 316-grade is far cheaper than the 904-grade, the 904-grade is the better solution as it is thicker and if installed correctly, it can last as long as 20 – 25 years while the 316-grade only has a 10-year lifespan.
“Buying cheaper often results in the fact that clients have to take better care of their liners and invest more money into the maintenance of these liners. It will also mean that you would have to replace the liner far more often. “A liner that has deteriorated beyond a certain point can not only be a cause of concern for the health and wellbeing of your family but the gas that leaks out from a damaged liner can also cause structural damage to your property. Thus, the better option remains to pay slightly more from the start to be sure that you enjoy the benefit of having a quality chimney liner to keep both your family and your home free from any unnecessary risks,” Burdis concludes proudly about the premium solutions they provide to their clients upon such an installation.
