You can believe us or go on line and read it for yourself. Those guys lied to you in order to take your money. Suggest you google Ohio Building code chimney or just go directly to Chapter 4101:2-8 Chimneys and vents - Ohio Revised Code

It's some real snoozy reading but you'll find the section 801.18.1 through 801.18.4 to be exactly germane to your application.

I would mark those guys right out of the book. :mad:

I would ask them to show the code reference that makes them say a SS liner is needed. I suspect they are using the reference below to justify their belief. I think they need to be educated that a masonry clay liner is compatible with coal.



801.16 Flue lining. Masonry chimneys shall be lined. The lining material shall be compatible with the type of appliance connected, in accordance with the appliance listing and manufacturer's installation instructions. Listed materials used as flue linings shall be installed in accordance with their listings and the manufacturer's installation instructions.

It needs cleaned after winter. Ash in the stainless steel chimney during summer can cause corrosion.

I had a guy in OH tell me I needed a SS liner as well. On. Top of that you needed "special insurance" since it burns wood and coal, although it also does oil. No one seems to know what this insurance entails, it's my guess he didn't want to do the job, which is fine but he just lost any other work I would be giving him also.

Now my manufacturer does recommend a SS liner more for sizing as they claim is drafts better. However, they also said to try out what I have first and see how it does, if it drafts good then no liner needed.
