Question about Heating & Cooling
I am looking to buy a gently used Vermont Castings Gas Radiance B Vent Stove that is a top vent. I want to install it and vent it into an existing 35" tall fireplace opening and up the chimney (no furnace in this chimney). Is this possible? I read in the manual for the Model 2600 that it is possible to reverse the flue collar from top exiting to rear exiting. Would this work for my fireplace opening? Thank you!

Hi, How about this, I'm buying a used 2600 set up for propane and want to convert to natural gas. Any interest is selling your natural gas components? Many thanks, Guy Holloway

It the opening on the stove is on top of the stove, it's a 'B' vent. If the opening is in the back of the stove it's a "Direct Vent". However, some models have a connection on the back that's facing up,. A 90 degree elbow can be used to convert it to a horizontal run to enter an existing chimney, but then it must elbow up to connect to the pipe that is required to line the chimney. You should not just stop the pipe above the damper. It needs to run all the way to the top of the chimney, then have flashing seal the chimney's clay liner and a termination cap on the top.
here is a link to the Owners Manual/Installation Instructions for a Model 2600. It installs the same way as the 2610. http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/62b85343-a800-4898-85a1-3d6d3c524259.pdf
Hope this helps you sort things out and do a proper installation.
