I recently purchased a used woodstove for my basement family room. I
am wondering do I need to use some type of thimble or can I just run
the approrpiate lentgh of stovepipe through the 7" diameter hole
already present in my brick chimney to access the flue? I ask becuase
I am having difficulty finding a 7" diameter thimble, they all seem to
be 6" or 8" diameter.
I am anxious to finish the installation, but of course want to be safe.
Please lend any helpful advice.
Happy New Year!
A total lack of response usually indicates that no one has any
good information for you. If you said something wrong etc, it's
very highly likely you would have heard about it. I know I've
never come across your situation.
I have hooked up a few woodstoves. I am not sure what your problem
is. Does the woodstove need a 7" pipe, or is just the hole in the
chinmey 7" ? Most stoves use 6" pipe. If the hole is too big in the
chimney, you cement around it, and let the cement (mortar) dry for
several days or it will crack. They DO make 7" pipe. Menards has it.
You can also get it at a heating supply center.
If the stove actually has a 7" pipe flange, you could go to an 8" pipe
if you could find a 7" adaptor, which a heating contractor could make
for you if necessary.
