Remove stainless steel liner?
We bought a house with a fireplace that used to have an insert. We didn't want to keep the insert (old, ugly, loud) so it's gone, but the flexible stainless steel liner in the chimney is still there and in great shape. Are there options to use the fireplace? We would rather not remove the liner in case we decide to have a stove or better insert, but we don't know what we're doing or when considering the run on wood stoves and inserts in our area We did have the chimney inspected, and it's fine.
