When connection your woodstove to your chimney you will need to know that there are four main methods to do this:
- Direct connection to a masonry chimney.
- Passage through a flammable partition into a masonry chimney.
- Entry into a fireplace and chimney.
- Outlet through a wall or ceiling through a factory built metal chimney.
When connection directly into a masonry chimney you will want to be sure that the stovepipe that is inserted penetrates to the inside edge of the masonry liner, however, it should go NO further than that. It will then need to be sealed with masonry cement. If you use a masonry thimble that is set into the chimney to accept a slip in section of pipe then the masonry cement will not be needed. Keep in mind that if you cannot easily gain access to this connector for cleaning, you will need to use a masonry thimble so you will be able to remove the pipe for periodic cleanings.
