    How many feet of venting is needed for a wood-burning stove to work properly?
    1 Answer
    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.

    I have a brick and mortar fireplace built in 1910. We have concerns for safety so we do not use it currently. How do I begin to check the chimney and fit it for a liner?

    1 Answer
    The first thing you should do is have a chimney sweep inspect and clean the chimney. He can then advise on your options and installation of a suitable liner.
