Chimney Requirements
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
Chimney connector must be a minimum 24 MSG black or 26 MSG blued steel (6" diameter). Chimney
must be used from the first floor or wall penetration to the chimney cap.
Use 6" diameter type UL 103 HT chimney from one manufacturer (do not mix brands) or code
approved masonry chimney with a flue liner.
Chimney connector and chimney must be fastened to the stove and each adjoining section.
Follow the chimney manufacturer's clearances and requirements.
Use the chimney manufacturer's fire stops, attic guards, roof supports, and flashings when passing
through a ceiling or thimble when passing through a combustible wall.
No more than 180o of elbows (two 90o elbows, or two 45o & one 90o elbow, etc.).
NOTE: Additional elbows may be allowed if draft is sufficient. Whenever elbows are used the draft is
adversely affected. Additional chimney height may be required to boost draft.
Figure 4
Drafting
Performance
Draft is the force which moves air from the appliance up through the chimney. The amount of
draft in your chimney depends on the length of the chimney, local geography, nearby
obstructions and other factors. Too much draft may cause excessive temperatures in the
appliance and may damage the heater. Inadequate draft may cause backpuffing into the
room and `plugging' of the chimney. Inadequate draft will cause the appliance to leak smoke
into the room through appliance and chimney connector joints. An uncontrollable burn or
excessive temperature indicates excessive draft.
Standard residential installations may use single-wall connector (Mobile-Homes may not)
Standard residential installations with reduced clearance connector may use the clearance
determined by the manufacturer of the connector for the connector to wall clearance or the clearance
listed in this manual. Offsets must be used to maintain the stove to wall clearance. Mobile homes
must use the clearances listed in this manual under "Additional Requirements for Mobile Home
Installations".
