Keep Smoke & Heat Where They Belong & Enjoy A Safer Fireside Experience— Have Your Smoke Chamber Repaired Or Parged Smooth
Do you get bombarded with smoke every time you set out to enjoy a nice, peaceful night by the fireside? The problem could be your smoke chamber, which is the upside-down funnel area above your fireplace. Here’s what you need to know…
What Does The Smoke Chamber Do?
First things first, what does the smoke chamber actually do? Well, you know all that smoke, ash, and heat that’s sent up by the fire? The smoke chamber’s job is to funnel and direct all of that up into the flue so it can safely exit the home.
What Causes Smoke Chamber Damage?
Smoke chambers can be damaged by a few things, including these:
- the heat of the fire
- moisture from combustion or a chimney leak
- corrosive creosote buildup
Of course, it’s not always damage that makes a smoke chamber dangerous or ineffective — sometimes it’s a matter of design. If the smoke chamber wasn’t properly built or has corbeled stepping, you could experience all of the same problems you would experience as a result of a damaged smoke chamber.
Why Is Smoke Chamber Repair So Important?
If the smoke chamber is unable to effectively direct heat, ash, and smoke up into the chimney flue, those byproducts will instead linger in the fireplace or flow back into the home. Smoke chambers with cracks, gaps, holes, and rugged spots will hinder draft and can lead to a smoky and dangerous fireside experience, greater creosote production, and heat transfer/house fire.
