You saw the reasons I went with a Blaze King and now it is time to talk about why I went with the DuraVent.  I had a hard time when it came to a liner for a number of reasons.  First, I had no idea what to look for and second I couldn’t find any real information with user experience.  However, I did know there were some things I wanted with a liner such as:

  1. A Quality Liner – I wanted a liner I could trust because this is what is exhausting toxic smoke outside of the house.  I wanted a good name and a product that was reliable.
  2. A Good Warranty – Sometimes a warranty is not that important to me, but considering what this product does and how it will be there for a long time, I wanted a product that had a great warranty and was backed by the company.
  3. Company with History – I don’t like fly by night companies.  I wanted a company that has history and has been making piping for a long time.
  4. Install Features – Since I am installing this liner myself, I wanted something easy, but strong since I knew I would probably beat it up when installing it.
I looked around at different companies and different products.  Again I tried to research it, but couldn’t find a lot of information as everyone was talking about their wood burning stoves and nothing about the piping.  I did see two companies that kept showing up through different searches, but I just didn’t know enough to make a good decision.  I touched base with our contact over at Blaze King to get his opinion.  Before I could even finish my long winded explanation of my research he told me right away to go with a DuraVent.  He said they make the best liner and that I should take a look at the Duraliner.  I have to say I was happy he said this with such conviction because DuraVent was one of the liners I was considering.  Now I could focus my attention towards DuraVent and see if this was right for my project.

DuraVent – A Quality Liner

I knew I wanted a double insulated liner and one that held up.  I have a large rise and wanted to make sure the liner stayed warm all the way up to help prevent creosote build up and keep a good draft.  It’s hard to really explain the quality of these liners.  You just have to pick one up and see for yourself.  It’s like trying to explain how a good baseball glove just fits perfect on your hand.

DuraVent Warranty

Duravent has a great warranty on their DuraVent liner.  The liner has a 100% percent replacement for 15 years and 50% after the 15 years.  That’s pretty hard to beat.

 

DuraVent History

DuraVent started in 1958, so they have a long history and they know what they are doing.  A track record is important to me.  Along the way DuraVent acquired ProTech Systems which is a highly respected product line.

 

DuraVent Install

I have to say I thought the install might be a little hard, but it was quite easy.  It would have been better if Dan wasn’t complaining about the weather and being on a roof.  I really like how easy this was to install.  The pieces fit together nicely and you can rivet them in a snap.  Even that Chimney cap was easy to install.

I know it is hard to tell if you truly have a good liner, but I am extremely happy with the DuraVent liner.  The install was easy, the liner seemed to be of great quality and it was so easy to install.  I am going to be replacing my boiler soon and I know I will be using a Dura liner as I want a quality product and I have had a great first experience with them.
