    Probably yes

    Can you install it and get it approved?  It depends on local regulations.  Contact your local building inspections dept and inquire with them. 

    Will your insurance  company still cover you?  Most insurance companies require ether certified installers or municipal inspection, and sometimes both.  So you should contact them.  I suggest doing it by E-mail; you can then print off and store the document for future reference.

    Weather locally required or not, you should install a full length stainless steel liner into the chimney for ALL air tight wood insert installations.  If it's an older house , you may need a insulated relining system, like the Duraliner system made by Duravent.
