Wood stove chimney instalation

593 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  griz
I am looking to replace a non-working wood stove in my basement with a new stove and chimney. The previous owners removed an existing stove pipe chimney, so except for the brick hearth, I'm basically starting from scratch. I'm looking for some suggestions on the chimney. The hearth location puts the chimney out the back of the house and will require some angling to avoid a window. Is it possible to run the chimney inside the house between the ceiling joists? If not, how much of an angle can I put in the pipe outside?

It is possible to run your vent inside provided you have proper clearance to combustibles.

Whether you go outside or inside you will need insulated pipe.

Check your local AHJ for woodstove installation specs.

Look at the Metalbestos site for pipe and fittings.

Get a permit if applicable.

Should you have a structure fire and the stove or it's components are deemed the cause an improper/illegal installation can leave you alone holding the bill for repairs as your insurance company will tell you tough luck.
