A chimney is a structure made of masonry or metal, which surrounds and supports a flue or multiple flues that vent products of combustion from gas, oil, or solid fuel appliances or fireplaces. The flue, then, is the inner part of the chimney, the part that actually contains and vents the products of combustion. Flues can be made of clay, as in the case of most masonry chimneys, or of metal, as in the case of prefabricated or manufactured chimneys. One way to think of a chimney and flue within it is to think of it as a structure built to protect you. That is an important function of all chimneys no matter what kind of appliance or fireplace they serve.
Remember, the main purpose of a chimney is to vent the products of combustion from your home. That function is crucial because the products of combustion contain hazardous and noxious gasses. One of the hazardous gasses your chimney needs to remove from your home is carbon monoxide.
