Question DetailsAsked on 11/1/2015

What is the cost of installing a chimney liner for an oil boiler heating system? Is it necessary?

I am installing a New Yorker CL-HGS-101B. The chimney is 32 feet high with 8 in flue.

Here are links to a few similar questions with answers:

If current flue is 8", depending on code in your area, that might suffice if in good condition, as the manufacturer specs call for minimum 6" round or 8x8 rectanular exhaust flue at least 15' high - so yours might be in the acceptable range.

This is a big enough job you probably want several Heating and A.C contractors to bid on it, so get opinions from several and find out WHY they say a new flue is needed - due to code, currnet materials are inadequate (maybe single versus required double-wall for instance), etc.
