First and foremost, this job needs to be done properly otherwise you could create a significant safety hazard for you and your family as a fully functioning flew expels dangerous gases from the furnace. Improperly installing a flue can also limit the efficient functioning of the furnace. Therefore, hire someone who really knows what they are doing before trying to install, build or fix a flue.
