Puff Back From Chimneys / Fireplaces



What is Puff Back?

Puff backs occur when something malfunctions with your furnace, fireplace, or chimney, or from improper installation causing soot and smoke to shoot back into your home. When there's puff back from a fireplace or a chimney, more smoke is generated than can be exhausted, causing soot and smoke to shoot into your home rather than exiting the chimney.

Chimney Puff Back Cleaning by Green Restoration of Hamden-MeridenCauses of Chimney or Fireplace Puff Back

Obstruction in the chimney -When there's an obstruction in your chimney, such as branches and twigs, it restricts the airflow causing the smoke to backup. This is why annual chimney inspections and sweeps are so important.

Cold air in the chimney - Cold air prevents smoke from escaping your chimney because of the weight of the cold air. This problem is generally self-resolved, but it still leaves a mess in your home.

Faulty pipe layout - Smoke should be released as vertically as possible. Multiple turns and elbows in your home's venting doesn't allow smoke to escape with ease.

Creosote build-up - Smoke leaves a by-product in your chimney called creosote, which is highly flammable and dangerous. Once creosote build-up begins, it accelerates the build-up of more creosote, creating a more hazardous situation. For this, you need your chimney swept regularly, to avoid chimney puff back into your home.
