Hello all, me again, so I am trying to make sure I cover all the bases as I replace my wood stove and upgrade pipe and thimble. My question is, is there a rule of thumb as to how long your vertical run out of the stove should be in relation to the horizontal run into the chimney? My previous stove had a 14” vertical, 90 degree elbow, and then 30” horizontal into chimney. Previous owner mentioned draft issues( which could have come from a number of other things). The stove I just removed from another house had 22” vertical, 90 elbow, and then approx 46” horizontal into exterior pipe. I can only assume that it worked for them. I am contemplating cutting a new flue hole higher up in my chimney for my new install if it is rational. I could make new hole 2 feet higher and still retain proper ceiling distance. Boring an 8” hole through brick chimney and clay liner will be no easy task but I am willing to do it if it may help with draft. Can’t find any real guidelines on the web. Thanks in advance for any insight!
