I just put in a SS liner and ready to install the stove. I was sitting outside looking up at the chimney. I have a TV antenna mounted on the chimney and remembered how the antenna installation instructions said to ground the antenna. So I installed a three conductor 12 or 14 gauge copper electrical conductor that I connected to the antenna and dropped to the ground and connected to a grounding stake. (I am on well and septic so I don't have copper pipes to ground to.) So I thought, wow, maybe I should connect this grounding wire to the chimney liner as well. I searched the forums previous articles and follow a few threads. The most comprehensive is: http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/viewthread/8187/ It seems to be smart to have the chimney with a metal liner going into the house to be grounded. However, there also seems to be a lot of confusion about the lighting protection. I am still not sure whether to connect my antenna ground to the chimey because the antenna is directly above the chimney cap, would most likely get hit by lightning before the chimney cap, and there is three 12 or 14 gauge conductors grounding the antenna that run OUTSIDE the house to ground. So I am not sure in my case that connecting the chimney to the antenna ground would help. I am thinking if I do anything, I might put a separate ground on the chimney, not connect it to the antenna. Any further consensus on grounding in general or insight into the situation that I presented above?
