I have a wood-burning cast iron stove in my workshop with a six-inch outlet that I want to vent through a pre-existing 8-inch outlet in my roof. It's about 12 feet from the top of my stove to the roof, and the pipe is passing through open ceiling joists

Our Answer:

It is recommended to vent any appliance only with diameter of pipe common to the flue outlet. Increasing from the stove's 6" collar to the 8" chimney could result in a poor draft or increased creosote buildup. In order to recommend components to achieve this transition, we need more information regarding the existing components. Could you please reply with the manufacturer/brand of the existing chimney system? This information is necessary in making an accurate recommendation.
