Chimney Pipe      There are several different types of chimney. We will try to narrow down what your needs are on this page and send you to the right area where you will find what you need.       If you are sure of what chimney you want, then go to the menu on the left and mouse-over: "Chimney Supplies" for wood, oil, coal, and some gas appliances. "Gas Chimney Supplies" for venting most gas appliances "Pellet Stove Products" for pellet burning appliances.   Unsure of what you need?

Stovepipe only goes from your appliance to the ceiling or wall, that's where chimney takes over. You need the insulating power of Class-A stainless steel chimney to go through the wall or ceiling all the way up past the roof. Besides it being to code, it is the safest thing to do. Even though "grandpa used to do it that way", sticking a single wall pipe out of a window and up to the roof is very dangerous. Codes call for an 18" clearance to combustibles for single wall pipe, and for good reason. Even though that single wall pipe may work fine for a while, it is what can happen and will happen that brings those clearances into existence. Always keep in mind that all codes are set up for you to be safe in a "worse case scenario". Worse case scenario for a chimney is a chimney fire. That single wall pipe turns cherry red during a chimney fire that burns around 2000 degrees. Anything combustible within 16 inches of that glowing red single wall pipe is going to catch on fire, which would be your house. Using single wall pipe also increases the chance for chimney fire because it collects much more creosote than does an insulated chimney. The colder the chimney, the more creosote adheres to it. You may think you are getting away cheap by using single wall pipe, but as many have found out, losing your home, or even a family member, due to using single wall pipe is alot more costly than the right type of chimney.     Class-A stainless steel chimney has clearances down to 2" to combustibles. Which means that even during a chimney fire, combustibles that are 2" or more away from the chimney will be safe. Check out our Typical Chimney Installation Diagrams to get an idea how Class-A chimney is installed.     Look, all of us handymen fudge on things around the house to a degree; some tar on a roof instead of replacing a shingle, caulk a bad angle in some moulding we installed, etc. But when it comes to venting an appliance which can be very dangerous, we need to stick to code. It is not something to fudge on.
