I have a Hitzer 30-95 I would like to install in my basement. There is a double wall metal 8" chimney already there that use to be used for a propane boiler, it is about 10 years old but was only used for 5 years and looks brand new. Is it ok to use this chimney for a coal burner and if so can I run a horizontal line to tap into it? The stove would be about 12 feet away with a 5 foot stove pipe and the chimney is about 20 foot tall.
Thanks for your help,
