Tips for Installing Black Stovepipe
When it comes to installing black stovepipe whether it’s for a chimney relining or a new stove installation Lindemann Chimney Supply wants to provide you with a few tips:
- Use self-tapping stovepipe screws for quicker installation.
- Stovepipe must have a minimum of three opposing screws at each joing.
- Single wall black stovepipe has a minimum of 18″ clearance to combustibles.
- Double wall stovepipe clearances depend on the UL Listing.
- Some stovepipe paint may lightly smoke and/or have an odor when the stove is first fired.
- Plan on curing new stovepipe. The homeowner should open the windows when the paint cures.
- Even after curing stovepipe will sometimes smell when it reaches higher temperatures in the winter months.
- Stovepipe is never to be used as anything other than a connector from the stove to the chimney.
- Never pass stovepipe through a combustible wall unless you have a UL Listed thimble.
- Stovepipe should always have a male/crimped end down connection into the stove.
- Use black stovepipe only on woodstoves or coal stoves (coal stoves are hard on black pipe and it will need to be changed out more frequently).
