Is the chimney liner that was on my old gas boiler ok to connect a wood burning stove to or do I need to get a new flue. It is a steel concetina type flue liner.
You cannot use the flue from your gas boiler because the wood burner is a greater heat than the gas boiler. The flue for a gas boiler actually is not all that hot. Your woodburner should work quite well without any flue. To remove the old flue, which is advisable. you will have to pull it from the chimney by getting on the roof to withdraw it. A woodburner will cause a lot of wood ash in the chimney and may want frequent cleaning.
