Venting a Wood burning Stove

I have a wood burning stove on my first floor. Can I run the vent pipe out a window?

I believe you should check with the town code or building department in the town you live in before you stick the flue out the window. There are fire and exhaust issues involved with your plan. You could also check with your fire department as well. (11/04/2009)

You cannot run a flue pipe through glass, but you can run it through a wall. This is a site that shows you how to properly install a flue pipe: www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/articles/installing_a_woodstove (11/05/2009)

At the cottage, we covered a small window with a thick piece of plywood and cut a hole in it slightly larger than the stove pipe. We stuck the stove pipe through it and filled the gap in with fire retardant insulating material, so the plywood wouldn't get hot. We've used this for over 50 years! Check with your local city hall for rules and regulations, as well as with your local fire department for fire code restrictions. The pipe has to be a certain size, and it has to extend up a specific height. (11/05/2009)

Start with your Town Hall, and permit information. Where we live the Fire Department gives out the rules and regulations, then comes back to inspect the job. If it's not done to code you are risking your life, and those who live in the house. Also you will not be covered by your insurance policy unless they are notified you have a stove. A wood stove is great to have in a cold climate, but it's still a dangerous thing, and needs to be respected. Smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors are a must. Watch the wood you burn, no pine, and have your chimney cleaned once a year! Good luck to you. The maker of your stove can also give you guidelines, etc. (11/06/2009)

One thing you had better do is call your insurance agent and install your stove according to their specs. If you do not do this and your house has any damage or burns down, your insurance doesn't have to pay a cent to you. Look for a certified installation company usually found under chimney sweep in the phone book. (11/07/2009)
