I'm considering adding a wood stove insert to my existing brick fireplace. Do I need to add chimney pipe? Or can I just exhaust to the current brick chimney?

Our Answer:

In order for the unit to vent properly, you must use a flexible chimney liner of the proper size and route it to the bottom of the first clay flue tile. Ideally, the liner would run the entire length of the chimney, as this would greatly increase the efficiency and improve the performance of the unit. The high efficiency inserts will not operate properly without at least the minimal length of liner in position.
