How many feet of venting is needed for a wood-burning stove to work properly?
The proper chimney height for a wood stove will depend on its location. First, the stove itself will have a minimum chimney height requirement that must be met regardless. Additionally, the chimney itself must be at least two feet higher than anything within ten feet of any obstructions all the way around.
