Help to determine the correct size & type of chimney liner.

    This is the response I got:
    We do not perform video inspections or remove tiles. You can try Clean Sweep Chimney in Middletown for the video inspection.
    Insulation for oil flue liners is not required by code. You may be able to install the liner without removing the tiles if not insulated.

    Give us a call if you have any questions.

    I had a chimney inspection done by Dennis at Clean Sweep Chimney in Middletown, CT.
    My clay flue liner is solid and in very good shape. He said it shows some wear, and it should after 57 years. I ran my plan by him for installing a smooth-wall non-insulated ovalized SS liner and he agreed with what I told him. He even said to call him if I run into any trouble. The hardest part will be the thimble - the opening in the basement enters the rectangular clay flue on the short 6" side.

    I peeked in the cleanout tonight and this is the result after the heating season.
    Chimney liner will happen this summer.
