    Insulating a flue liner

    I have to put an aluminum flue liner in my chimney. It will be ventilating a 50 gal gas fired hot water heater only. I'm wondering if there will be enough heat generated that condensation may be an issue during the colder months. I'm in MA.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Have someone tune the water heater (properly) with a combustion analyzer, then you'll be 100% sure all is well, liner or no liner, insulation or no insulation.

    Thanks. I'll make sure my plumber does a combustion test.
