Hello, my name is Korbin and I am a new member here. I've been doing A LOT of reading around here (and elsewhere) and have found this site VERY informative. So I want to say thanks to all who contribute to the community. I am a member of many other forums but new to heating my home with via wood. I purchased this > http://www.heatilatorecochoice.com/products/details.asp?cat=wood-stoves&f=ws22 < wood stove and have built a nice hearth pad using the corner method in my living room using all clearances necessary and also made walls surrounding the stove of non combustable material via cement fiber board and thick ceramic tile. My home is a 1 1/2 story with cathedral ceilings on the other "1/2" over the living room where the Stove is to be used where I have cathedral ceilings. The pitch of the roof is a 12/12 pitch and this is where my question comes into play. I have chosen to use all double wall "Dura vent" for the inside and triple wall from ceiling support box joint all the way to the top cap. Being as the stove is installed in the very corner of the room I am wanting to use two 45 degree elbows "both double wall "dura vent" " and run with the 45 degree pitch for roughly 7 feet until it meets the top of ceiling and then I can run it straight out and above the roof line as such. The picture I've included is not of my set-up (borrowed from the web, I do not own rights to this picture) as I have all the materials but have not installed yet. This picture is VERY close to how I would run chimney. Is this considered OK for draft? I understand cleaning will be a bit of a challenge, lets put that issue aside for a second and talk about the actual function of draft and creosote build up using this method. The wood I will be burning is clean, well season hickory and oak. The total chimney height from stove top to top cap is roughly 26' -28' and total horizontal length will be almost exactly 8' ( so 12' between 45 degree elbows) What are your thoughts?
