Chimney Liner Needed for Oil Burner?
I live in a circa 1890 Victorian Style home--a 2-family home with 3 stories, several fireplaces (that we do not use) and oil heat.
My neighbor from upstairs recently heard from a chimney sweep that it is absolutely necessary to have a steel liner installed for the venting of the oil burner. When I purchased the house, and asked a similar question the technician who came to service the burner said that this was not necessary because it was oil, not gas heat. My neighbor is very concerned about poisonous gases leaking from the system.
Would be most appreciative if someone could advise us of whether or not a steel liner is necessary or not. (as an aside I am planning to sell my unit this spring so I only want to invest this huge amount of money if absolutely necessary).
Much thanks for any advise.
