    Hi! I am new here but have been reading threads for a while now, I recently purchased a, Federal Air Tight stove model # Fa264ccl. I am in the middle of getting it ready to for my living room to be installed front.of a prexiisting fireplace. My stove exhaust pipe points straight up, I would like to have the stove sit out in front of the chimney opening far enough that I can use the side door to load and mount the blower on the side. My question is if I start from the top of the stove with an 45 degree elbow will this hurt the stoves performance?
    Thanks in advances for any ideas!

    I guess it will depend upon how good your draft is. Every time you make the smoke go around a corner, it slows down. And when it slows down, it cools and creosote forms. You'll also need to run a flue pipe up and out of the chimney. You can't just dump flue gasses into a chimney even if it has a tile liner and block-off plate at the damper. If you do, you are just asking for a huge creosote build-up.

    Thanks for the reply, and yes I have purchased a 35' double hall exhaust pipe to run up the chimney and I have a cap seems like I will be cutting the damper opening to make room for the pipe. I think I am going to try a flex pipe from the damper plate to the stove to try to eliminate the hard bends.

    What do you mean by double wall exhaust pipe? Is it a liner or stove pipe? We would just use flex the whole way infact we just did a liner for a federal airtight today in a fireplace all heavy wall flex liner.

    Sorry about the confusion, I have a double wall stove pipe, and 35' of stainless steel liner and it is flexible,
    I purchased the kit from someone for 100.00.

    Ok good that should be appropriate but you should get an insulation kit for the liner
