    Consult the manufacturer
    Some stoves dont need a damper

    Why double wall pipe to the ceiling?
    The more single wall pipe you have inside the house the more heat you will get (maintaining tolerances of course)
    I am glad I ran mine as high as I could before going out the side of the house, that pipe throws some heat

    In general, no - newer stoves do not benefit from a stack damper.

    If for some reason your new stove ends up getting too much draft as some very few do than you can add the pipe damper. otherwise , no need with new stoves.
