TOPIC: Wood Stoves

Wood Stoves 2 years 7 months ago #59387

I just inspected a home that has a wood burning stove. The stove itself was only 9.5" from the drywall and the metal single wall flu was 10.5". I went back through some of my class room books and it doesn't say how far away from the wall both should be. Anyone online know? I want to finish the report and get it to the client by this evening. Thanks in advance for any advice I can get. BTW yes, the stove is being used but not as the main heat source.

Does this illustration help?

T9 = table 9 (Clearance reduction systems (in) I have in a code check book, no illustration.

Yes David, thanks much. Actually I realized I had a code book after I sent the post and found the stove. Glad I got the response though in the event I didn't have one. Have a good evening.

Where did you find the illustration? I like that and more than likely would have used it on my report had I not already sent it to the client.

One is from code check, another was from an ASHI online article.
I did not see the post soon enough and I understand the urgency of providing the report.

What about just checking the clearances with the data plate on back of the wood stove?
