I just bought one.
Traveled 240 miles one way to get it.
The Pocono model with the 12" vent.
$2300 plus tax or a little over $2500.
I plan on putting it in the basement into an existing flue.
The flue has been used by the oil burner and is 8x12".
It's inside a stone chimney about 25' high above the thimble.
The stone chimney is 3/4 inside the house and 1/4 out however the attic is unheated.
I am going to assume the general advice is to reline the chimney.
However it seems that there is some dispute here about this.
In particular Berlin seems quite adamant that relining a chimney flue in good shape is a waste of money - including ones as large as 8x12.
Does the company have any opinion on this?
Also I know the power vent is another option.
But there are also some other products on the market which claim to assist draft which appear simpler.
Here is one.http://www.northlineexpress.com/detail. ... w=5SA-1238

I really don't want to line this chimney unless I have to since in the future someone may wish to convert back to oil.
