Hi Everyone- I recently bought a house in Essex MA that is electric baseboard heat. It is a 2100 sqft range with a fireplace in the dining room and in the basement with a 15' chimney on the interior of the house. After seeing my heating bill for Oct, I decided supplemental heating would be a good idea. I was fortunate to pick up a 2006 Jotul C450 insert used for about $1500 and I am in the process of getting ready to install. From what I've read, my understanding is that a block off plate hooked up to a stainless flex pipe vented out the top of the chimney is the ideal install strategy. I'm a DIY guy, so I'm hoping to tackle this myself. The damper in my fireplace looks like this: The strange thing I noticed is that above the damper the chimney is stepped (I never looked up chimneys so that may not be strange). In other words, the path out of the chimney is up (obviously) and to the right as illustrated by this pic: Basically, the chimney vents straight up from the far right of the fireplace (the pic is flipped 180 degrees). Is there any reason to believe that getting the flex pipe to make that corner will be impossible? Thanks for any feedback!
