Our Answer:

A good bit of the liner requirements are dictated by the size of your masonry chimney. If the flue is not more than two times larger than the 6" vent pipe that the insert requires, you could run a short length of 6" flex liner from the insert to the bottom of the first flue tile in your chimney. If the chimney is much larger, it is recommended to install a flex or rigid liner the entire length of the chimney, with insulation. Either way, fully lining the chimney is recommended, as it will optimize the efficiency of the insert and make the unit much easier to service and clean.
