    Twig, have you contacted your oil comp. or the building dept.? It could be there is a variance from International Code permitted in Minn. You need to check local regs in this regard. In at least one state, Maine, your current setup is permissible. In most others, solid fuel appliances need to have a dedicated flue.

    Also call US Stove and ask what the register and duct clearances are for a furnace to floor vent with a direct take off from the Hotblast.

    Update... Ok, it looks like there is no problem running a fuel oil furnace and a wood stove out of the same flue. Fuel oil and wood are considered an organic combination. The oil company is coming out tomorrow to do a volume check on the 3 appliances (wood furnace, oil hot water heater, fuel oil furnace) and then they will do a volume check on the chimney to determine wether the chimney can handle all 3 appliances... This all came right from the county inspectors mouth. He said stainless is not needed for fuel oil.

    Any thoughts
