Can I put a direct vent stove into a B-Vent system? Will this help eliminate condensation?

Our Answer:

Depending on the size of the B-vent piping that is installed, you may be able to leave the B-vent stack in position and run the new direct vent piping through the stack. However, it is necessary to remove the existing B-vent piping and replace it with direct vent pipe in most cases. Even though they are more efficient than B-vent appliances, the design of the direct vent piping helps to ensure that condensation does not occur. It is recommended that any direct vent piping above the roof be sealed into an insulated chase, especially in cold climates.
