Chimney Question

PostBy: bradfr On: Thu Sep 04, 2008 8:18 am

I am getting ready to install my keystoker 90 in the basement and have a couple questions about the chimney. I did not want to power vent because of the risk of the device failing and the constant need for power so I have chose to go with a regular chimney. I wanted to place my coal stove as close to my furnace as possible which is inconveniently in the center of the basement. If I install the stove there I will have a long horizontal run before I make to an outside wall for the chimney. What is a safe distance to travel horizontally when not power venting and can I have any 90's or 45's in that run? Also, what kind of venting should I use to go up the side of the house? I have read in some spots galvanized B-Vent can be used but I just wanted to make sure this was an acceptable process.

Why not power vent the existing furnace and put the coal on the chimney? The PV won't use any power unless it's running and it won't run when there is no power like the gas/oil burner anyway. :) A long horizontal run will be tough on a solid fuel appliance, not so with your gas/oil burners.

Sounds like an "Elegant" solution to me! (& cheaper if you have to build a new chimney)
