Our Answer:

Lining a chimney will indeed work to ensure proper drafting of any appliance. Insulating a chimney liner for a gas furnace is not generally required unless climate constraints demand it. This, of course, is assuming that the manufacturer of the furnace nor your local codes do not recommend it. Standard uninsulated reline pipe should do the job just fine. The warranty listed for the reline pipe should indeed transfer to the new home owner. Just be sure that you retain records of both the purchase of the pipe and the labor invoice for the installation.

In Response to Question:

I am selling my home and lining the chimney was part of the buyers home inspection. My unlined brick chimney is used to vent one natural gas furnace. The height needed is 21 ft. In this application is there any advantage to the insulated ultrapro 316Ti liner versus the unlined version? The chimney is in relatively good shape and has been maintained. That was the first question. I have three contractors involved. One spec'd the uninsulated. The second spec'd insulated and the third spec'd uninsulated of SS Ventinox with vermiculite and cement insulation surrounding. I am located in Central PA. I am leaning toward the least expensive uninsulated. Will it do the job? Will it last? What about the warranty in my name and house being sold soon after?
