Venting a new Coal Stove

Venting a new Coal Stove

PostBy: Rozz On: Wed Jul 16, 2008 8:43 am

Hi all,
I still haven't decided on the type of stove yet, but am strongly leaning toward a Leisure Line Pioneer. I'll explain to you my situation and hopefully someone can suggest a way to vent this stove. The stove is going to be placed on the gable end of my house with hollow chase, 18" deep x 4' wide. This chase is going to be covered by stone veneer to look like a stone chimney. I could easily run metalbestos in the chase and poke through the roof. I priced out the materials and it is running about $1500 plus I need to poke through the roof and on top of that I am going to have a metal chimney that will look out of place on the roof as it will poke out just below the peak on the very edge of the gable end of my home. Next I looked at a power vent, but the problem there is that on the opposite side of the enterior wall is a deck and I don't want to be blowing exhaust in everyones face and once again it would sort of look out of place. My main questions for you all, is first of all, what type of pipe would I need to run a vent in that chase to a power venter? Please remember that the chase is 18" x 48" so clearance may be a problem. Secondly, what are the limits for the angles and length of the vent pipe when using the SWG power vent that Leisure Line sells? If at all possible, what I am looking at doing is putting a 90* elbow from the stove pipe, running up roughly 20' and then using another 90* to turn and go out the wall and mounting the power venter under my eaves up near my peak. This is just a thought and I'm worried that there is too much angle change for what I am allowed. Also if I need a double walled pipe anyway, it may be better just to build the chimney.

Thanks again for any advice.

You don't have another location that is an easier install. It sounds very complicated. Also, keep in mind that fly ash will fill those pipes and they will need to be cleaned out on occasion. If you could post some pics it might be helpful.

Hi Rozz, i don't think you will be using the deck during the winter??? So the powerventer's fumes should not be a problem..

You don't want the Powerventer 20' in the air, it needs cleaning and maintenance every month or two .
