I'm wondering if someone might be able to help me. I installed a fireplace this fall with a double-walled stove pipe chimney. It is the height required by code (2 feet higher than the part of the roof within 10 feet). The other day I had a terrible time with it. It was windy outside and the wind blew HUGE amounts of smoke and ash down the pipe and out into the living room. I mean, it filled the house. Every surface was covered in ash and it looked like it was snowing inside. I had a fire going at the time, and the smoke alarms went off, I had to open windows, etc. It was like the wind had a direct line straight down the chimney. I had to scoop the burning logs out of the fireplace and carry them outside because it just wouldn't stop. We don't have doors on it yet, which could help, but does anyone else have suggestions about avoiding this problem? I mean, I can't believe that I won't be able to have fires any time it's windy (like, all winter). My dad thought maybe going a little higher with the chimney pipe, but I don't know. Any thoughts are welcome!
