What's the price on the blower? What's the recommended length of stovepipe from stove to top of outside exhaust?

I have a 2,500 square ft. modular home. I want to take out the insert fireplace ( that came with home) & install this unit in it's place using the existing chimney. Why would I need an out side air vent as there was no such vent on the insert fire place? I have plenty of ventilation in this rather large modular home . The room I'm installing this in has an 11 foot vaulted ceiling & the insert chimney goes through it .

The fresh air kit - this Majestic S31174 Stove Air Kit
- is required by code for your application. If your home is, by definition, a modular home, then it is required regardless of your actual room dimensions.

Are the tubes in the fire box supposed to have hole in them? The damper works fine but no fresh air in.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 31, 2013
Answer:The secondary air tubes in the firebox are indeed supposed to be perforated. This allows for air flow to be injected into the firebox to feed the flames and keep turbulence present.

We have an area of just under 400 square feet on a concrete slab with 9' ceilings. I want to install a wood burner but I am afraid of getting one that is too large. I understand that if you don't keep the fire burning hot enough, creosote will build up in the vent pipe. My concern is that if we install too large of a stove, keeping it fired up will put out too much heat for that size of a room. We are also looking at this Majestic as well as the Drolet Pyropak. What are your recommendations of these 2 stoves in a 400 square foot area?

Both of these models, as well as the Osburn 900 High-Efficiency EPA Wood Burning Stove
would be excellent choices. They can be left at a medium burn and will heat the space comfortably. Only extended low burn sessions will cause creosote buildup.

Is there a big enough surface on the top of this to hold a kettle or a small pot?
By eFireplaceStore on September 4, 2014
Answer:The step top design of the stove will definitely limit the size of the kettle or pot significantly, but an 8 inch diameter kettle could fit.

What are the differences between a wood burning stove that says that it is approved for mobile homes and one that is not? I have a mobile home that has a place for a wood burning stove that is covered in stone. Does this make a difference?
By eFireplaceStore on February 3, 2015
Answer:Because mobile homes and stick built homes go through different building regulations, wood stoves must also be independently tested for the two types of housing as well. Mobile home approved stoves will have lower overhead clearance requirements, provisions for outside air, and will usually have lower wall clearances. Your stone hearth pad should help to shield the floor from radiant heat, which is necessary for most stoves.

I am completely gutting the existing wood-burning fireplace in our mobile home. The screens are shot and the fire brick is in poor condition. I want to install the Majestic wood-burning stove approved for mobile homes. What stove pipe accessories do I need to marry the existing stove pipe to the new unit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 15, 2012
Answer:Whether or not the existing chimney can be used and the components needed will depend on the size and brand of the chimney. Most information can be gained by using the manufacturer name and model number of the fireplace.

I have a mobile home. What do I need with this stove to install it in my home? Does the item ship free to Whittier, California?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 30, 2013
For use in a mobile home, this stove only needs the Majestic S31174 Stove Outside Air Kit
. Yes, this stove would ship free to you in California; you would also not be charged sales tax.

How are the ashes collected and cleaned with this unit?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 13, 2014
Answer:This model does not use an ash drawer for collection of coals. Instead, ash should we swept through the door opening of the unit once the ash bad is approximately 4 inches deep. The unit has an ash lip to help prevent spills when cleaning.
