    Zero clearance insulation contact

    I am in the process of installing FPX Apex 42. They have installed the firebox and but we are waiting for the chimney chase to arrive. I noticed that the insulation is contacting the bottom 6 inches of the firebox in the back. The installer says it's fine. Is this okay?

    Clearances for stove, possible mantel replacement?

    I apologize if this comes up often, but I've searched the forums for an answer or input and didn't come up with much. My wife and I just purchased a Jotul F3 as a source of backup heat (home's all electric, no options for natural gas). The plan is to drop in a liner into the existing chimney...

    Hi, I'm in central Minnesota. I put in a Lopi double door wood stove with 8" pipe on a straight wall. The stove pipe is 21" from the studs and straight up with proper through ceiling set up. I'm think of putting up 1/2 " durra rock and 1 1/2 to 2 1/2" thick cultured stone, with a 3/8 to 1/2 "...
