Hi. How much of a nono is it to run my HiFire through my oil boiler's chimney? It's a 8" metal chimney that runs through the house about 42'.

A big NONO at the building department, Fire Marshall and insurance company offices. However, a 42' chimney could probably take care of a neighborhood of homes without any trouble.
I have some info from Burnham Boiler on how to run the two (solid and oil fired) properly. PM me an Email addresshhhvj
