How far does a chimney have to be from a window?
People also ask, how close can a wood burning stove be to a window?
Similarly, does a taller chimney draft better? Obviously in a chimney fire, the wood is the fuel and a match is the flame so the air providing the oxygen comes in the form of the draft. The reason that a taller chimney creates a better draft is really rather simple as the higher up in the atmosphere the chimney reaches, the greater the differential pressure.
Simply so, how far does a stove pipe have to be away from a wall?
If no wall protection is used, the common radiant-type stove or heater must be spaced out at least 36 inches from the wall. This distance may be reduced considerably if asbestos millboard and/or 28 gage sheet metal is used for wall protection.
Can you build around a chimney?
No builder wants to leave 2" of air space around the chimney, through the roof, blocked off with only fire stopping and roof flashing. Modern code makes it difficult to build chimneys with exposed masonry walls in contact with baseboards, flooring, and combustible ceilings. We asked several builders what they do.
