What's the going recommendation for sweeping/inspection intervals? Once a year off season or add another mid season or per volume of wood burned?
Nice work. What is the clearance listed in the manual?
Would you argue the opposite for a central/interior chimney?
The 2006 vintage detectors that came in our house have a 'Logan's Run' style failsafe, and will chirp at ~10yrs regardless of battery.
Good to hear. Thanks all for the advice.
Behind, hooked straight to bottom of liner.
Listed in the Woodstock manual for NFPA 211 standards ...stovepipe 12" to combustibles through masonry 3.5" plus 1" airspace. Inspection this week.
I also read 12" if through masonry with an airspace. How thick should I assume the back of the brick fireplace firebox is?
What about the T-pipe? Is single wall considered sufficient for an interior fireplace install?
From an earlier thread, I bit the bullet and had an insulated liner installed for the new Fireview.
Setup is ~33', 6" heavy flex, with insulated...
Got a good price recently from: https://fireextinguisherdepot.com/
Better price than the big box stores or grainger.
Thanks. Very thorough response. Given that time to replacement and the fact that labor costs > > materials, heavy wall seems a push for non DIY.
Other questions regarding blanket wrapping a heavy flexible vs. pre-insulated flex, for wood,not coal:
Are there significant total installed cost...
Yes, I was mistaken on the 'forever flex' part....too many 'flex' brand names to keep straight, but the current 8" is a heavy liner, possibly...

Working on estimates now.
Any other opinions for Olympia Forever Flex vs. Magnaflex Insulflex vs Champion Easyflex or others?
Got it thanks. Is Insulflex still the go-to here? I've seen it mentioned in several threads.
Regarding output, the doubling in firebox size and move to freestanding should fulfill our needs and expectations.
For the hearth surface,...
Thanks for the replies; all input appreciated.

Two flues from the looks of it. FWIW the exterior dimensions of the chimney in the attic are 27x27".
An insert sized for 8" would be much...
Is it possible to run a preinsulated 6" liner up an existing 8" liner or does the 8" need to be removed?

I usually keep my firewood in that space to the right, which would be a problem for the sideloading Fireview.
1st floor is around 1000 sq ft.. 2nd floor around 760. The existing 1710 is rated for almost 1300 sq ft, which I think is a reach.
A smallish stove like the Woodstock Fireview would fit, and the sales make it attractive, but I'd need to cover the wood floor further out. 55K...
The I2400 is 2.3 cu ft, and I think the Kennebec is around 1.7.
I've been using a smallish Morso 1710 as a 'starter' insert for the past 3 winters. It turned out I use it pretty often and now would like...
I have a 1710. It's performance is underwhelming, even when burning well. The small firebox is also a pain re. log size.
It is pretty, though.
