Is it normal to run this Empire DVVK-4FV vertical fireplace direct vent pipe up an existing chimney or is it only designed for punching a new hole in the wall/ceiling?
By eFireplaceStore on December 14, 2015
Answer:This vent kit is primarily designed to be used with a new installation through a pitched roof, however I have had past customers with a chimney large enough for the vent kit to be routed through. This is not a problem and the only consideration that would need to be made is the fabrication of a custom lid to cover the top of the chimney.

Answer:According to national code, the top of the vent termination for a direct vent appliance must be 18 inches to a ventilated soffit and 12 inches to an unventilated soffit.
