Wood Stove Chimney Diagram

Here’s a do it yourself project that you can accomplish in a few hours on the weekend. First a word of caution. Wood Stove Chimney can be dangerous if not installed properly, so be sure to follow all the chimney pipe manufactures instructions and all the wood stove manufacturers installation instructions from their owner’s manual. You can click here to find owner’s manuals for many wood stove models. You can order everything you need right on our website. We have wood stove chimney order forms that start with a basic chimney system that you can add parts to as needed.

Here are a few things to consider before you get started:

Your internal pipe size (6 inch or 8 inch ID)

Single wall stove pipe or double wall stove pipe interior? - (check your stove clearances to decide)

Height from stove top to ceiling support box - This determines how much interior pipe will be needed, depending on how far the support box hangs into the room if it is a sloped ceiling.

Ceiling pitch-slope – This determines which support box you’ll need.

Roof pitch – This determines which roof flashing you’ll need.

Height from ceiling support box bottom to the top of the pipe – The pipe must extend 2 feet over nearest ridge or surface within 10 feet horizontally.

Once you have all your wood stove chimney parts together, lay out the position of the stove on the floor based on the stove manufacturers clearances to get the position of the center of the flue. Drop a plumb bob down from the ceiling to see where the pipe needs to penetrate . Keep in mind that the support box will need to go through your ceiling supports, which typically are 16″ on center, so you may need to place the support box offset from where the stove sits and use elbows inside the room to angle the pipe back to it or change the position of the stove.

Once you have determined the position of the support box, you can then find the proper spot for the roof penetration and cut your hole. You’ll need to follow the pipe manufacturer’s instructions and be sure to maintain a 2″ clearance to any combustibles. On a typical composition roof, the roof flashing would be installed under the shingles on the upper side of the roof  and over the shingles on the lower side. The wood stove chimney coming through the flashing is sealed with a high temperature sealant around  the pipe and then the storm collar is squished down over the sealant. Another bead is then put around the gap on top of the storm collar to complete the job.

Avalon Arbor Wood Stove Sale is happening at

During the 1870s, burning wood produced 75% America’s energy. Over the years coal, and then oil, reduced wood use. By 1972 wood accounted for only 1% of the energy used in the United States. In the 1970s, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the energy crisis helped make wood burning an attractive alternative again. More recently environmental concerns and strict EPA regulations have helped wood stoves really come into their own. EPA-certified stoves now burn 72-82% more cleanly than those of the past, making wood’s former reputation as a dirty fuel obsolete. Wood has a much higher BTU capacity than gas, and wood is also a renewable resource. Trees are being replanted at an unprecedented rate, which also helps improve air quality, as trees use carbon dioxide to produce more oxygen. Additionally, buying firewood keeps your energy dollars in the local economy $.

Stove Cleaning Checklist from Wood Heat Stoves & Solar

After your stove has had a season of hard work it is time to show your appreciation for the trouble free operation by going thru recommended annual service as listed in your user’s manual that can be found by clicking here 

Wood and Pellet Stove Cleaning 
On all pellet and woodstoves you will need cleaning brushes and rods for the vent pipes. Find your brushes and rods by clicking here. Be sure to consider where all this soot is going as you brush these pipes and have tarps and shop vacuums ready to keep the soot out of the air and off of the floor. Beware that you don’t push the soot into parts of the stove that are harder to clean out when you are done.

Gas Stoves – Inserts – Fireplaces
Gas stoves build up soot around the logs, pilot assemblies and burners, after a season of use. Usually a professional gas service man is best for this task but some more technically oriented customers do their own maintenance. Your manual is the best resource for instructions on this task. The pilot assembly and pilot generators are the most common parts needing cleaning, adjustment or replacement. They can be tested with a multimeter for the millivolts that they are
generating and compared to the minimum specifications. Troubleshooting information is located by clicking here -
Replacement Parts
Electrical components: Blowers get covered with dust and animal fur during the season and lose their efficiency until they are cleaned with a duster brush and vacuum. Auger motor bearings can wear out on your pellet stove. Now is the time to replace blowers and other motors that are becoming noisy as this is the first sign that failure is imminent. You will find most of these parts on our web site or contact us by email and we will find the parts you need if possible.

 Worn out Gaskets
Most door gaskets get worn out in a year or two and need replacement to keep the airtight function of any stove. You can check your door gasket by taking a piece of paper the size of a dollar bill and holding it in the door gasket while latching the door closed tightly. Then try to pull the paper thru the closed door and test it all the way around the door. If it is slips thru anywhere, you need to replace the gasket. We offer gaskets and glue on our web site.

 Programmable and Remote Thermostats for Gas Stoves
All gas stoves can run on a thermostat by connecting two wires to the valve.  We suggest that you add one versus manual operation. They can be wired and programmable for the ease and efficiency of automatic temperature changes at different times of the day. Or, you can choose wireless remote controls with simple on/off, thermostatic or programmable thermostat functions for ultimate control and ease of operation.
