I agree. It depends on what your state requires. The Uniform Mechanical Code will be the reference point for determining what route the inspector will want you to take. It all depends on a few factors, such as: is the chimney indoors or outdoors, how high is it, is it brick masonry. Having a Chimney Sweep Service company of an HVAC contractor come out to evaluate your chimney is the place to start. The cost will vary but it's usually less expensive if the inspector lets you install a chimney liner.
