What Is A Smoke Chamber?
Your smoke chamber plays a big role in the proper airflow of your system, which is vital in the functions of your appliance. The smoke chamber is the area between the firebox and the flue, and it helps to guide smoke and fumes up and out through the chimney, so that they do not enter your home. If you want your fireplace to function safely and efficiently, a well-kept smoke chamber is necessary. Our team of experts is here to help.
So, what kind of damage do smoke chambers normally face? Well, because of the high temperatures this area of the chimney experiences, the smoke chamber tends to go through a lot of wear and tear. If water enters your flue, this will cause damage to the smoke chamber too. All of the exposure to corrosive elements leads to cracks, holes, and gaps to form throughout your chimney including the smoke chamber. Overtime, the structure of your chimney will break down quick, and soon, you will be faced with a lot of expensive and time-consuming repairs.
Dangers Of A Damaged Smoke Chamber
When there are openings throughout the smoke chamber, your risk of carbon monoxide exposure increases significantly. It is not difficult for smoke, fumes, and dangerous gases to seep through the cracks and enter your home, which puts your entire family at risk of being ill. Carbon monoxide is especially dangerous since people cannot see it or smell it. People usually are not aware of a carbon monoxide leak until a person experiences physical symptoms. When not treated, carbon monoxide-related sickness can become fatal, so it is definitely not something to mess with.
A damaged smoke chamber also increases the amount of creosote that forms inside your system. Creosote is highly flammable. If it ignite, this could cause a chimney fire quickly, and your chimney will not be suitable for use until it is restored. This is both time consuming and will cost you lots of money. Avoid the risk by investing in affordable smoke chamber repairs right away.
