    Yeah i will. I have to wait for another warm spell so i can shut the stove down. It's still cruising with air closed. So the draft still seems good. Better than before

    Is this the same product that they use to insulate liners?

    It might get better when the top of the chimney is higher than the roof top. Less down draft.

    Not sure, but I don't think so. The top and bottom around my liner is stuffed with it.

    Yeah, this is our first home. We lived in a 1 bedroom 700sq ft apt for 3 years to sace up a big chunk and this place fell into our lap. But we eventually wanna build and i want at least 10 or more acres. No one is really close to me now, but i wanna make the house sellable in case a sweet lot comes for sale

    10 acres? How much time do you have to mow the lawn?

    Are you saying you also put some at the top of the chimney.

    Sure, the top of the chimney is the coolest section. You want to keep that warm to avoid creosote build up.

    Well, I installed it non insulated, but I stuffed from the top and the bottom with Roxul. Using a piece of lumber to stuff it up/down. It is now considered insulated for at least 80% of the length.

    And I measure the temp frequently using my IR thermometer and it works perfectly.

    So if you have a insulated liner you don't have to use Roxul, you guys are just using Roxul instead of liner insulation.

    Mine is uninsulated from the top of the masonary down to the stove. Hence the roxul

    That is what I did. I should have bought a pre-insulated liner, but I did not. So, I insulated with Roxul after the liner was in the masonry chimney.

    Since I have a insulated liner the only place I need to insulate now with Roxul is around the insert. Right

    In theory I think so. You're liner is insulated all the way to the stove?

    The Roxul behind the block off plate should that be done to keep the heat from escaping up, like your doing with the insert, or is the Roxul behind the block off plate there because your liner was not insulated.
