Wood burning stove installation
« on: April 01, 2018, 06:46:36 PM »
I have an old Fisher wood burner that i have restored and want to install in my house for emergency heat. Its in the house on an existing brick hearth with a floor to ceiling brick wall behind it. The house has a chimney with a terra cotta insert, 6.5x10.75. The stove has a 6" opening in the back, wall has an 8" hole to the chimney. questions?
Can I use standard 6" pipe straight to the hole in the chimney?
Do I need a damper?
Can I use the existing chimney with out running a 6" pipe all the way up to the roof?
Is there some sort of transition to go from the 6" pipe to the 8" hole in the wall?
Any other general tips for wood burning stove installation will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

You will have to get an adapter. Legally in most places it needs to be 8" these days.

Get double walled and run it up the chimney is my advice. How industry chimney

I had one where the pipe only went half way up and it was a mess and hard to clean.  I suggest going all the way up or make it so it is easy to take out for cleaning.  Half way was the worst (but met code at the time).

In my last post, industry = how old is your chimey (according to my phone).

Wow, pipe halfway up was legal?

Clean that chimney and inspect real well for cracks and such before use.
Yes they make adapters. Most hardware stores that carry the black pipe should be able to fix you up with an adapter.

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like I'm going all the way up with the pipe.
