    Hey,

    I just recently bought my first house that has a stone fireplace with a draft inducer. I currently have a heat pump in the house so, I am installing a buck stove insert. TThe previous owner just installed a new 10 inch stainless steel insulated liner on a 20+ ' chimney and the buck stove I bought has a 6 inch outlet. My question is, will these two different sizes work ok if I attach them with a 6" fireplace insert connector up to the baffle and seal it at the baffle? Tell me the pros and cons please.

    Your best bet is to run a 6" liner thru the 10" from the insert to the cap. Without getting into the thermodynamics, it'll just draft better.

    alright, do I have to insulate the 6" through the 10" or can I just drop it and straight through?
