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.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
