This fireplace chimney was not safe for continued use for multiple reasons. This chimney was originally constructed incorrectly. The interior flue passageway had no chimney liner. The chimney is way too short for how large this fireplace is, it should be about 20 feet tall for this large of a firebox opening. Many people have attempted to modify this chimney to make it draft. Our best recommendation was a new wood stove insert installed into the masonry fireplace and vented through the chimney with a 6 inch diameter stainless steel chimney liner, with a 3’ pipe extension. We installed the Napoleon EPI 3 wood stove insert with contemporary black fireplace face trim, installed with a new 6“ x 14‘ stainless steel chimney liner kit.
