Job Details

Brief Explanation

We want to make sure our customers are safe and healthy. One concern some of our customers in older homes have is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos was used in home constructing material because it was cheap and known to resist heat and fire. Before 1980, venting flue pipes for furnaces contained this material.

Why Remove Asbestos?

Asbestos fibers can cause severe irritation in your lungs and over time will even cause cancerous cell growth. It's not a material you want to be exposed to and one that has been banned from construction purposes.

The combustion products generated by a furnace—such as CO, CO2 and methane—exit the home through a flue pipe.  Old pipes were composed of asbestos because of it's fire resistance.However, overtime, the heat from the furnace can cause asbestos to become friable which can cause asbestos fibers to become airborne. Asbestos is no longer used in venting flues.

We Fixed This Furnace Flue Asbestos Problem

A local customer was worried about being exposed to the asbestos fibers. She called CWP and we went to the home and inspected the furnace system, including the flue. A new flue was indeed needed.

We removed the old flue, carefully, and then CWP installed a new double walled 4" flue pipe. Not only will the home be free from any asbestos fibers but the new flue pipe will also prevent any CO, from the combustion process, from staying in the residence.
