A Guide On Choosing the Correct Chimney Flue for your Stove
When it comes to the effective functioning of a chimney, there are essentially two parts that make it work effectively and these are:
- The Connecting Flue Pipe that connects the stove to the chimney system or to the flexible liner, and
- The main chimney system, which can be either:
- A Chimney Liner in an existing masonry chimney, or
- A System Chimney for a new building where the building doesn’t have an existing chimney.
Well, here in this write up we’re going to discuss about choosing the right stove flues for your chimney.
- Connecting Flue Pipe –
For connecting flue pipe, you should use “Prima Smooth” which is the new stainless steel connecting flue pipe and can be use as an attractive and functional alternative to your traditional vitreous enamel. This has joints in the pipe which are formed to give the appearance of a smooth continuous length from the stove through to the System Chimney. Prima Smooth is a product which is lightweight and precision engineered.
- Chimney Liners –
For chimney liners you should use “TecnoFlex Plus” which is the leading twin skin flexible liner for all kinds of solid fuel and wood burning appliances. There is another option that is “Prima Smooth” which is a rigid single wall chimney liner and has been manufactured from a high quality 316L Grade Stainless Steel. This liner system however has adjustable bends that are particularly useful in cases where the stove is not directly in line with the chimney.
- Twin Wall System Chimneys –
For twin wall system chimneys, you should go for “ICID” which is the new twin wall system chimney and which has been specifically designed for stoves. The ICID has a key feature: it is easy to install twist lock connections.
