No, you must have 1 chimney per product that you have, and you need to make sure that the vent pipe is the correct size for what you are running. If you combine the two and both are operating at the same time you can run into problems with your system where the draft is not correct and harmful fumes are coming back into your home.

Can't keep the wood burning in stove. How does the buck stove take in air?


To burn properly, it needs proper combustion air and proper draft. Draft is effected by the size and height of the flue the appliance is connected to and by how much combustion air is available. The appliance flue connection should not be reduced to fit a smaller chimney size. That is, an 8" flue should not have an 8 x 6 reducer to vent it into a 6" chimney.

The wood you are burning could contribute to a poorly burning fire. To burn properly, the wood needs to have been "seasoned" for a minimum of 1 year or close to it. Two years is even better. "Green"
or freshly cut wood contains an unbelieveable amount of moisture in it and a tremendous amount of the heat is wasted just "preheating" the wood to the temperature that causes it to release gasses for ignition.

I don't know the style or model of your Buck, but all wood burning appliances should have combustion air dampers of either a sliding design, rotating round design or hinged design with handle at the bottom front of the firebox. I'm sure there are some fancy new designs that have air piped in from outside the structure.

Every wood fired stove, fireplace or furnace has its own idiosyncrasies and its up to the user to determine what's required for making it operate as designed.

Why does my blazeking wood burning stove get creasote in the fire box and how do i get it out?


Hi Darlene,
Creosote consists of combustion byproducts,[smoke] that gradually builds up in the stove & chimney.MOISTURE in the wood,and slow burning greatly increase build-up. 1/4 '' of creosote is considered a hazard. Consult a professional chimney sweep,then burn only 'seasoned' dry hardwood,and when you start or re-kindle the fire,burn it hot enough to thoroughly heat the flue; this will draw the smoke up the chimney faster,decreasing the time build-up can occur. Stay Warm!

Wood stove problems


Appliances that can draw air out of your house, like the clothes dryer, air exchangers, bath and kitchen fans can cause a negative air pressure issue. The combination of a cold chimney flu and barometric pressure can also cause a down draft.

Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector in your house when using any fuel burning appliance. Be informed about the dangers of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.

I'm installing a wood stove insert with a 6" flu. Can I use a 5" or 5.5" chimney liner and be ok? Thanks in advance. Jacob Ullucci


If the stove exhaust pipe is 6", you need to have a minimum of 6" all the way up your chimney. If you use a smaller pipe you will limit your flow, which causes excess cooling and crystalizing of smoke creating more creosote, and more of a chance for chimney fire. The perfect solution would be to run a 6" liner down your chimney, and connect it right to the top of your insert. Make sure you install a top plate at the top of the chimney to insure pieces don't fall outside the liner. Lastly install a stainless steel cap to keep any animals out.

How do I get wood stov in the Chimney?


With a wood stove or vent type chimney it is easy, just take a section of chimney out and insert the heater. With a brick chimney you may have room to put the heater in from inside the house. If not, lower the heater down the chimney.

Hi. I also have the toyo stove and that combined with one of these Heat exchangers will heat a 2000 sq/ft House to the point that you have to open the windows in winter.

I got mine at Chimneyheaters.com but I am sure there are of lots of places that have them.

Does the chimney need a stainless steel liner


If the fuel is either wood (or any wood products) or oil it is required to have a stainless steel liner. Gas burning appliances need an Aluminum liner. Make sure it is sized correctly and not over sized.

Wood burning heater when putting wood into stove lots of smoke comes into the house when door is opened.


It ain't drafting right or you have the damper closed. Look for obstructions in the smoke stack.
Wood burning tips
  • Burn only wood. No garbage, plastics, rubber, paint or oil, briquettes, paper, etc. Burning these items releases harmful chemicals into the air.
  • Burn Wise Program from EPA: Emphasizes the importance of burning the right wood.
  • Build small, hot fires instead of large, smoldering ones.
  • Don't "bed the fire down" for the night. Holding a fire overnight is a fire hazard and can create serious indoor and outdoor air pollution problems.
  • Open your damper if the smoke is dark. Dark smoke indicates more pollution is being produced and fuel is being wasted.
  • Keep your stove clean and well-maintained. Follow manufacturer guidelines; replace catalytic stove filters every 1-4 years. Have your chimney checked and cleaned at least once a year.
Use seasoned wood The best fuel for woodstoves is dry, "seasoned" wood. Seasoned wood has a moisture content of about 20% or less. It tends to be dark in color, cracked on the ends, light in weight and has bark that is easily broken or peeled. Here are some tips for preparing seasoned wood:
  • Split the wood to help it dry. Wood will dry out more quickly and burn best if the wood is cut to about 3 1/2 inches to 6 inches in diameter.
  • Cover the split firewood to protect it from the weather and stack it loosely in alternating layers, at least 6 inches off the ground.
  • Time must be given to allow the wood to reach 20% or less moisture required for seasoned wood. This process takes approximately 6-12 months. Think ahead and buy next winter's wood well in advance.
It is recommended an annual chimney cleaning to remove creosote build up and to identify potential problems. Things to consider:
  • The Chimney cap may be plugged by debris.
  • Catalytic combustor and baffles are exposed to very high heat and deteriorate as used. Replace every 1-4 years depending on use.
  • Stovepipe angles and bolts are subject to corrosion.
  • Gaskets on airtight stove doors need replacement every few years. Gaskets and seals are used by the appliance designer to control the location and flow of air into the appliance.
  • Check seams on stoves sealed with furnace cement. Seams may leak and cause you to loose valuable heat and reduce the efficiency of the unit.
  • Replace broken or missing firebricks.
  • Keep the floor of your stove clean of debris and ash.

Hi,

You will need to install a flue liner ( i know its a nuisance) to allow the products of combustion to escape as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you installed a gas appliance without a liner, due to the temperature of the flue gases (lower than solid fuel) the emissions would struggle to exit via the flue terminal.

If you install the appliance following the manufacturers instructions, you cannot go wrong. The other recommendation is get a 'Gas Safe' engineer to carry out the commssioning/testing.(house insurance void if not certified)

I hope this helps.
