Hi. I am looking at a used fireplace insert in very good condition, I
have checked to make sure it fits my fireplace, but I have a question.
I want to run a flue liner from the insert to the top of the chimney.
But how do I pass the liner through the damper?
The damper runs the width of the fireplace, about 29 inches and a flap
open upwards and back. the flap is 5 1/2 inches wide. So I have to
pass the liner through a 5 1/2 inch by 29 inch rectangle. Does someone
make an adapter for these situations? Any help would be greatly
The insert you are looking at may not be appropriate for your fireplace.
Sounds like you have a real fireplace like mine. It required a zero
clearance unit and 2 flexible stainless steel ducts when up the chimney....
one for exhaust and the other for intake.
