Is this proposal reasonable for Blaze King Ultra install? Not sure why he didn't itemize the chimney parts.
The stove will be installed in the basement in a ranch style house
36" black double wall flue pipe
10' chimney inside garage
6' above the roof.
He didn't say if he needed to extend the chimney, I believe the Ultra requires 20' or 24'
I'm not sure what all parts are needed

No…… nothing is reasonable anymore…..
Seriously though, it’s likely about the best they can do, the class A stovepipe has gone outa this world in the last 2 years, along with just about everything else..

That's my thinking, might as well act on it now. My original plan awhile back was to install a wood stove in a few years and in the mean time, continue running my OWB for a few more years.

At least now, after the wood stove install, I can run it during the shoulder months, Sep, Oct then again in May, instead of running my LP furnace during these shoulder months.
