    Does anyone know if you can place a wall thimble near an electrical outlet? How close can they be to each other? There is an outlet near where I want to put the Duravent for my Pellet Stove and I need to determine if it needs to be moved.

    Thanks!

    As long as the Thimble does not touch the outlet and/or wires. You should be good.

    Is this a corner install? Or a regular wall install. If a wall, it could be moved slightly off center of your position.

    This will be a corner install.
