    Is this the right place to ask for sanity check on Jotul F 55 Install Price?

    It seems wood stove prices are one of those things they like to obscure online, so I thought I'd ask here. Bought a new 2,500 sq ft home on 10 wooded acres. There is an old (cracked on both sides from overfiring according to the chimney inspector we had come out) wood stove on a spacious stone...

    do I need a damper for this Jotul Castine?

    have had this Jotul for at least 15 years. Never thought to put a damper on it. The installer never mentioned it. What did I know? :) Should I add one? Is this a DIY process? I would need to remove and replace a section of pipe, correct?
