Wood burning stove

6 posts in this topic

I've got a question maybe someone can answer for me.

I've got a gas furnace in my garage hanging from the ceiling, and use it all winter. I've been thinking about getting a wood burning stove to save on the gas and burn up some scrap wood that always seem to accumulate.

Do you think I could just pipe up the exhaust thru the existing exaust ductwork for the furnace? That ductwork tee's off into the furnace, and maybe I could punch out the bottom of the tee and connect it to a wood burning stove's exhaust.

Not sure if this would work or might I be asking for trouble?

Well old time wood stoves were installed without insulated pipe,It was at least 6 inch pipe and was solo (only woodstove)

I believe to be covered in insurance you'd be foolish to go that way,even with a proper insulated pipe,ceiling pass through joint,and roof vent,I'd have it inspected and question your insurance carrier before installation,If its covered for fire loss.

NO NO NO! More than likly you have B-vent from your hanger, you cannot vent wood through B-vent. Please do it right, or don't do it.

That's what I wanted to know. Thanks. I think I'll stick to burning scrap in the firepit in the backyard and be thankful for the gas furnace. Gas will be soo cheap by this winter anyways the way things are going smile

My shop had a wood burner in it when we bought our house. Our insurance co. wouldnt cover a wood burner in an unattached building. There theory was by the time you notice there is a problem the building will be a total loss.

I have put two woodburners in two different houses that we have owned. In all honesty by the time you buy the sotve, single and double walled black stove pipe (depending on intallation) and the class A chimney it would take a long time pay off the original ivestment if you were going use it just for burning scrap wood. To answer your original question you would not be able to vent it out of an existing vent of a gas appliance. I had that idea a few years ago and got the big, "NO" from the insurance company.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
