Chimney & Fireplaces/Replace prefab woodburning fireplace with wood burning woodstove
I live in Maine. I have a Temco pre-fab fireplace / chimney system in a house that was built in 2001. The chimney is outside the house within a framed structure that also houses the furnace chimney. I want to remove the Temco fireplace, close up the wall, stone face it, and install a Jotul F400 woodstove. Jotul indicates the chimney pipe system must meet UL 103 (HT). I can't find any documentation that indicates what the UL listing for the Temco chimney components is. There is a reference to an MH10105 report; but that just sends me back to Temco. The chimney is a double walled 8" flue; the Jotul has a 6" connector. In your experience, will I need to site clear the whole chimney system and start new? Options?
Hello Kris, you would have to remove the entire fireplace and pipe system and install a new All Fuel SS chimney in that chase, I would have a local Certified Chimney Sweep www.csia.org, (there you can look up by zip code to find one near you) take a first hand look at what you have, they should be able to help.
Hope this helps
