Inspected a gas fireplace insert into a masonry chimney yesterday. Unit was a little smaller than the opening which gave me opportunity to view the flue. It was made of that aluminum acordian style ducting that is normally used for dryer ducts or bathroom fan vents.
I’ve never seen this used for a fireplace venting before. Is it acceptable? Lots of handyman work on this home, so would not be suprised if this wasn’t acceptable.
I wish I had a photo, but didn’t get back around to photograph it.
