i hope some one here can help me out with a wood burning stove pipe question.
i have a 3 story old farm house and i want to add a stove on the first floor but i dont want to run all that pipe up the side of my house and i cant use the fire place, it's being used by the boiler.
from what i been reading (by code ) the top of the stove pipe needs to be at lest 10 feet from the house. this is Measured horizontal from the house. thats why your pipe is only 3 to 4 feet above your gutter or soffit ( roof pitch versus height)
so what im looking to do is stub out of the house build a stand for the pipe in my yard 10 feet away (witch can be removed in the summer).
i need to know for proper air flow, how much horizontal pitch do i need befor i need to go vertical.. witch will determin the hight of my stand..
a example whould be pipe leaving house 5 feet (above grade) to the stand at 7 feet (above grade)..i have looked everywhere online i cant find anything on horizontal versus vertical pitch..
sry to make everyone think on a weekend but my feet are frezzing
pipe installation vertical versus horizontal
