For a professional chimney liner installation service in the Swindon area, look no further than Billing Chimneys. We are a family company with a reputation for providing high-quality chimney work since 1980.
Chimney liners come in a variety of types and the correct one to use will depend upon the existing flue or chimney, it’s condition and the type of fuel being burned. A liner installation needs to be carried out to meet building regulations, but the main reason why you should choose a professional installation company is safety. A flue is needed to take away waste gases produced from burning and to achieve this a draught is required. A chimney liner will ensure the flue is leak proof and provide an efficient draught.
Billing’s experienced engineers will advise on the best type of flue for your needs and supply and install it to high standards.

Isokern® chimney liners are made from pumice, a naturally occurring light and porous volcanic rock. It makes an ideal material for a chimney liner due to its excellent insulating properties. Using pumice also reduces the risk of cracking as there is very little expansion and contraction during use. If you are considering refurbishing your chimney or are someone building a new chimney this kind of chimney liner is well worth considering.Read More

It is important to fit the correct liner for the appliance, both in terms of the fuel to be burned and the safe connection between the appliance and the flue. The manufacturer of the appliance will stipulate the diameter of the liner. A flexible stainless-steel liner is less expensive than a pumice liner and whilst not as long-lasting will give many years of service.
