wood stove install?


The advantage to running it through the roof is that you can use single-wall pipe up to the roof line, or ceiling in your case. So you need a thimble deal to go through the ceiling, then a brace deal at the roof and a roof flashing deal, then a storm collar and a cap. The triple wall stuff is pricey.

Another advantage is that you will get more heat off the single wall pipe.

If it is 8 inch you should be able to find someone that has some 8 inch triple wall they bought by mistake and are willing to sell. You are asking for big big trouble not at least seeking expert advice. For one you will never get an 8 inch outlet stove to work properly unless you know what you are dealing with. The day that thing back drafts and blows the door open with hot embers remember my warning. You need to get the idea of single wall being very dangerous. I would say minimum 1000 dollars for an install to code, not sure on the labor, good luck. Oh, your insurance company is not going to cover the damages this stove is most likely to do.

Just be sure you go to a "real" woodstove store. Not someplace like Lowe's or Home Depot.

Why would you say that?? Do you think that a large percentage of wood stoves end up burning the the garage down or something?? I'm sure some do, but that doesn't mean there isn't a safe way to install one. Personally, I give the guy credit for doing his share of research first before installing it. If he's safe with the installation, he'll likely never have an issue..............

wood stove install?


Having owned several wood stoves, I have had the best luck using metalbestos pipe going through cold areas like your ceiling, attic, and roof. Single wall or double wall unlined pipe gets cold and cold air drops. You can use single wall inside, till you hit combustibles. I would also most definatley use a barometric damper if you live in a windy area, to prevent surging. Masonry chimneys that run up through the house are OK, because they stay warm, but single flue outside masonry chimneys are difficult to get to draft to get your fire going. My neighbor built one like this and he had to open the door and stuff some paper in his flue, and even then it was hit or miss. You need even metalbestos to be at least 2 inches from combustibles.

Metalbestos is expensive, but it is also very good pipe, rated to 1800 degrees if I remember correctly.
