Question: Hi, I just bought a home 14yrs old. heated by forced hot air. The stove was tapped into the distribution air duct by a plenum. The problem I have is that it is about 6 or 7 feet from the wall with a long flu with 2 45's. out the wall and up a chimney.(two story house.) is that too far for safe operation, also the stove has a small blower on the makeup air. do i just let it suck the air from the room or do i have to connect it to outside air. who should i have inspect it for safety? is there a jensen dealer? thanks. Answer: If the stove drafts and burns correctly, then the distance to the chimney will be OK. Yes, it will be ok to use room air for the make-up air for combustion. This is a very small fan and should not cause a negative pressure in the basement. In the event that your house and basement are extra tight, you could crack a basement window or remove some caulking to get some air into the area near the furnace.
