There is no time like the present to ensure the efficiency of your fireplace or stove. One way to do this is by using a direct vent fireplace pipe. Direct vent pipes use a coaxial system, meaning a small pipe within a larger one, allowing one to act as an exhaust while also drawing in air for the fire. We offer complete kits to simplify the buying process. Find exactly what you need for a great price at eFireplaceStore!
I've got a Superior BC-42 fireplace that I installed 10 yrs ago. I think I need to extend the pipe higher because when the wind is out of the south the smoke comes back in the house. The cap is not above the highest point of the roof. It is 12' from the ridge and is 3' above the roof. If I raise it higher will this fix the problem?
I have a small, custom built wood stove that vents vertically with 6" black.stovepipe. In the building in which I have the stove, we have no ceiling, so the stovepipe will go straight up to the underside of (and through) the roof. I have all the regular stove pipe for form the wood stove up to the roof, but I think I need a piece where the pipe goes through the roof that (A) needs to be double-walled (to prevent setting the wood roof supports on fire) and (B) accommodates the angle of the roof. Is there a piece made just fort that? And if so, what is it called? Thank you.
Yes, you will need a cathedral ceiling support box, which would be mounted into your roof deck. This part will serve as the transition from the single wall pipe to double wall class A pipe that can run through the box and above your roof. Please note that the box you select will dictate the brand of class A pipe you will need to use, as these are not universal.
I am planning on replacing my wood burning stove with a direct vent gas log stove. My question is about the venting. Can I re-purpose the 6" stove pipe I already have installed by adding a 4" flexible pipe inside it and mate both to the new direct vent gas stove?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to attach a direct vent unit to the chimney you currently have installed. We apologize for any inconvenience.
I am replacing a wood burning free standing fireplace with pipe through the ceiling with a new pellet stove that requires a 3 inch pipe. Can this vent through the ceiling as well as the old free standing one did? Or, do I have to get a kit that vents through the wall?
You can vent a pellet stove vertically through the ceiling.
