What can cause stove pipe premature failure?
- Corrosion from acidic condensed flue gases. Flue temperatures need to be high enough to prevent water condensation to prevent this.
- Corrosive gases that are present when burning household trash. To prevent this, do not burn household trash in your wood or pellet stove.
- Excessive temperature. If your stovepipe is glowing hot then it will have a shortened life expectancy.
- Humid weather can also cut down on the life of your stove pipe.
