Choosing a Length

The best way to size your chimney liner is by dropping a tape measure from the top of the chimney crown and measure the distance from that point to the thimble or opening where your appliance or stove will connect to the chimney. It’s always a good idea to add an extra foot or two just in case.

Choosing a Diameter

A general rule of thumb is to see what size outlet is on your stove or appliance. In most cases, fireplace inserts require 6 inch diameter chimney liner. Wood stoves generally require between 6-8 in diameter chimney liner.

In any situation you should first consult the manufacturers instructions of your appliance before installing a liner.
