    Hi,

    I have recently had my old Back boiler removed and replaced with a new Combi Boiler which is located elsewhere.

    I intend to brick up the opening in the chimney and include an airbrick for ventilation

    Before I brick it up, as you can see from the picture below there is still a flue liner in the chimney, that was previously attached to the back boiler.


    What i need to know is if the liner needs to be removed before the opening is closed.

    As if it does I will need to get someone to go on the roof and remove it.

    Thanks

    Does it rattle when windy?

    Haven't heard it rattle yet.

    I can hear a sort of howling noise coming down it when the wind gets up though.
