I have a 12" x 8" brick chimney that goes directly into the basement with a 90 degree turn at the bottom through the basement concrete wall. What do I need to do to install a liner so I can hook up my wood burning boiler?

Answer:In order to make this conversion, the appropriate length of flexible liner, connection tee, support plate, clamps, and cap will be needed. A short run of single or double wall chimney connector will also be needed to span the gap from the appliance to the chimney thimble. However, you would need to know the distance from the top of the chimney to the existing thimble, before you make any purchases.

How do I convert from square clay tile to the Duraplus 6" triple wall pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 19, 2012
Answer:Making the change to a Duraplus chimney system would require a masonry transition plate, which is designed to be used in conjunction with the appropriate slip connector and flexible liner assembly.

Do you have the complete chimney liner kits, including insulation? We need approximately 6" by 13 ft.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 7, 2012
Answer:We do indeed offer complete liners kits for most needs. Will you be venting a wood-burning appliance or a unit that burns coal or oil? The type of alloy needed will depend on the fuel being used.

I took out my oil furnace and replaced it with a different type that doesn't require venting. I would like to use the old chimney to vent a wood furnace. What needs to be done to ensure this is safe? Can I simply install a liner or is there more?
By eFireplaceStore on October 6, 2014
Answer:If the old chimney is a masonry chimney, you will indeed have to install a properly sized liner and insulation wrap. If the chimney is a prefabricated metal pipe, it may already be suitably sized for your new furnace.

I have an 8 x 8 clay chimney. I would like a 6" SS liner. Do I have to remove the clay tiles? Can I pour insulation around the SS liner?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 12, 2013
No, your tiles can indeed stay in place; and yes, if the tiles are not cracked or damaged, you can use pour-down insulation to surround the liner. We recommend the HomeSaver Insulation Mix

I'm installing an insert in a fireplace where it already has double wall straight steel pipe 12" and 8". Do I need the 6" flex liner pipe?
on November 9, 2012
Yes, you will need 6" stainless steel liner to vent our wood-burning inserts. Please note that you need to make sure that your existing fireplace is listed to accept the particular model that interests you, and that the insert itself is able to be installed in a manufactured fireplace. You can see one example of our 6" stainless steel liner insert kits here:

Can you put a liner in a triple wall metal chimney?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 9, 2013
Answer:Certainly. As long as the triple wall chimney is in good condition, it can house a liner to size down the flue for an insert or stove.

I am installing a pellet stove where a wood-burning stove was, and I need a 3 inch 30 foot chimney liner. What would be recommended? Do I also need a vent kit or does the liner suffice?
