Woodstove pipe causing draft


I recently installed a woodstove in the livingroom fireplace. The pipe comes out of the back of the woodstove, into the fireplace and up the flue. The only propblem with this set-up is that the flue has to stay open because the pipe goes through it. I'm worried that the heat will easily escape through open flue when the stove is not in use. Is there a way I can insulate the flue around the chimney pipe so the heat can't escape?

Post a picture of your set up---something doesn't sound right.

sounds like a flue liner and it should be sealed at the roof line.

I don't have any pics, but the pipe does not go all the way to the top of the chimney. It reaches just past where the flue liner begins. But now the chimney damper is open because the pipe has to go through it and I'mworries that in the winter, the heat will escape through the open damper.

I think it would be wise to call the owner of the company that installed the stove and get it sealed.
