Chimney Liner for Peerless WBV-03 (Oil)
We currently have a 6-ish year old Peerless WBV-03 Oil Fired steam boiler (done by previous owner) that vents into an unlined brick chimney. The chimney is looking a bit rough above the roof line, so I went up there to take pics for repointing/repair quotes and looked down inside which is how I discovered it was unlined.
I would have assumed that if a liner were needed it would have been installed when they did the new boiler but that doesn't appear to be the case. Should I be looking to get this chimney lined when I have it repointed or should I leave it alone?
Second, sort of related question: We are exploring a conversion to natural gas in the future as there is a service line running right in front of our house. Is the WBV-03 able to be converted to gas? If so, would it be able to be vented in to the same chimney (provided we have it lined)?
