Chimney replacing a power vent ?

I had my oil burner serviced yesterday, as posted before, I have a Tjernlund SS1 power vent, the service guy told me it's possible, to take out the power vent and run an insulated pipe up to the roof on the outside of the building. Any thoughts and input would be appreciated.
Thanks
Gregory

This is possible with triple wall pipe. Just run it up the side of the home and terminate 2' higher than anything within 2 feet. DO NOT USE "B" VENT. That is against manufcaturers suggested use unless insulated and boxed in. "B"-vent is to be used inside the home.

How big would the replacement chimney pipe 6 or 8 inches, I know that I need Class A piping. The triple insulated piping at 3 feet is $84.00 a length. The exhaust piping going to the powervent is 6 inch diameter, when it leaves the house and goes into the new chimney does it get any bigger ?
Thanks
Gregory
