Should I install my wood stove chimney through the attic?
I am instaling a wood stove for occasional fires and I want to install the chimney inside the house. It is really cold out here and the outside chimney I have right now conducts the cold into the wood stove and the stove becomes really cold when not in use.
I want to install the chimney through the first and second floor of the house but I want the pipe to make a bend from the ceiling of the second floor to exit on the side of the house instead of going through the attic.
Is this a good idea. I hear horror stories about chimneys going though the attic.
