Stove using existing chimney
We just bought a house -and this is our first house ever! Before we lived in appartment and everything has been taking care of by lendlord, so, please, please! - forgive me if it sounds stupid - but - I know nothing about houses. The house we bought has an oil heating and I figured it has a chimney because of that. I am wondering - can I install a wood stove on a first floor right into existing chimney or I really need a separate chimney for this purpose? Our inspection revieled that 'oil' chimney needs a new lining - so figured while changing the lining we can install a stove - prices for oil in our area are insane and I heard having a wood stove during a winter really helps to do a liitle bit af savings.
