Class A Chimney Advantages

What are the advantages of installing a metal chimney?  There are many advantages installing a double wall chimney.  This is a factory built chimney that can be installed in place of a masonry chimney. Another advantage of installing a Class A Chimney  is that in a few hours you have a new metal chimney.  A masonry chimney is much more labor intensive and requires a higher skill level.  By the time you purchase all the materials to build a block chimney and install a stainless steel liner, you may be spending more than you would if you installed a factory built chimney. One thing you cannot do with a masonry chimney, is install a chimney in the middle of the home starting on any floor.  A Class A double wall pipe requires only 2″ of clearances to combustibles.  With a Class A Chimney, you can start your chimney where ever you want in the home, whether it is in the basement of even in the attic, it is possible with a factory built chimney.
