Will Chimneys Be Replaced in 2021?

The chimney has been around for centuries, and we expect it to stay that way for quite a while longer. Eventually, future fireplaces, stoves and even electric fireplaces are going to be replaced by smart heating systems. 

Smart home technology is already transforming how we live in the 21st century, but it’s about to go even further. Modified materials such as ceramics and alloy chimney liners will bring inspiration to chimney repair. 

Among the possibilities are the replacement of chimney functions with something similar to the smart home technology that we use today.

The Impact 2021 Will Have on Chimney Repair

We are currently in the midst of a chimney repair boom. There are a few reasons for this:

  • A lot of people are moving into larger homes, which require new chimney repairs. But the biggest reason for the chimney repair boom is because of the increase in gas and oil prices. 
  • People want their homes and businesses to be more efficient and friendly to the environment.
  • Being home during the pandemic, people noticed chimney damage and want to beautify their homes.

How Drones Will Help With Chimney Repair

The world of chimney repair is changing rapidly due to the emergence of new and exciting tools, methods and procedures. 

Tools such as drones and robots are revolutionizing the way we work. They make the process of chimney repair more efficient and make it safer. As the technology behind drones continues to advance, they’ll play a greater role in upcoming chimney repair projects. 

This is thanks to the fact that drones can access even the most remote and inaccessible chimney repair sites. This allows them to diagnose repairs quickly that would be time consuming and even costly to access otherwise.

Chimney Liners

Chimney liners are used to prevent soot and creosote from escaping the chimney masonry and getting into the home. These liners are made from an impermeable material to keep your home chimney from catching fire. 

In addition, the liners help keep the fireplace and hearth cleaner. This gives the homeowner peace of mind, knowing that their chimney is safe and functioning properly.

For 2021, chimney liners should continue their progression in improvements. This includes new fire-resistant technologies that will keep your home and business safe and offer superior soot-catching capabilities. 


The design of the fireplace itself will be more beautiful and creative as the months go by.  Some of 2021’s fireplaces will also be hidden by a large glass wall and will be concealed.  The designers will use a combination of glass and aluminum material in the design and it will be virtually invisible from the outside. 

Whether the design of the fireplace is updated or similar to the old fashioned one, they will be improved with the recent advances in technology and be much more efficient.
