    If the inspector has signed off and the job is done in a professional manner with installation requirements for the stove and chimney met, then hopefully they will be satisfied. Ask them? Some insurance companies are sticklers and some are fairly easy going.

    Sorry J, Seasoned is right. What you are calling conduction is in fact radiation.


    I think you are an engineer by degree like me? Remember heat transfer class in school - there are three modes of moving heat:


    1 Radiation - The direct beaming of heat as electromagnetic energy from one object to another. This is how the sun heats the earth and is what you "see" on an IR camera.

    2 Conduction - The transfer of heat between 2 objects in direct physical contact. The higher energy atoms in the hot object bump into and excite the lower energy atoms in the cool object.

    3 Convection - The transfer of heat via a moving fluid. Can be foced (fan) or natural (gravity). IN natural convection the hot object heats air - which expands, rises and draws in more cool air, which in turn heats continuing the cycle.

    All of our woodstoves heat by all 3 means -radiation , convection and conduction.

    Tapatalk... I can type from the sh*tter! ;lol

    Actually, almost no time for the hearth from home, but I spend much of my work day waiting on computer simulations, which gives me time to browse.
