Stove 20' from chimney, can I run stove pipe that far?

PostBy: NorthernIndiana On: Fri Jan 31, 2014 6:00 pm

A friend just bought a Coal Furnace and asked me to post a question on this board. Where he wants to place his furnace is 20' away from the chimney, can he run stove pipe that far assuming he can get a slow rise between the furnace and the chimney? If not, what is the maximum distance he should span horizontally? Thanks in advance!

My question would be WHY 20 ft--I sure wouldn't want a 20 ft. run, but if it's something that he HAS to do, so be it--YES, a substantial rise & a lot of hangers holding the pipe

Put in a bunch of T's with clean out covers. That 20 foot run is going to collect a lot of ash!

Of course it can be done. Will it work? You'll need one hell of a chimney and maybe poorly at best.

might need the help of a draft inducer and a real good co detectors.I'd look to shorten up the pipe some.

Well if there was any way to avoid running the vent pipe that far, it would certainly be much preferred. Cause unless you have good draft this is doomed to work poorly. The only thing I can think of if the 20' run is unavoidable would be to use a draft inducer. Have cleanouts for fly ash and permaintly installed manometer and CO detectors. Redundant CO's are best.

Many old gravity hot air furnaces were installed centrally with long runs to the chimney. Usually the pipe is supported by a turn of wire every 3 or 4 feet.
Good drafting chimney it will work.

How tall is the chimney and is it inside the home or on the exterior?
