Chimney Height
« on: July 10, 2013, 09:48:55 PM »
So I checked the other search function and read various threads regarding this.  Lots of formulas and spreadsheets.  I am still uncertain what height chimney I should go with...

I have a FGM950B pretty close to being completed.  I am just not certain what height I need for the chimney. Thoughts?  Thanks!

You don't NEED any, but the higher the better as a rule.

Draw is a function of pressure differential., so the higher the flue the higher the difference.

I didn't know that.  Call it dumb luck then, my chimney is well over 10 feet tall.  I can find paint in a matching color that doesn't flake off the decorative cap on my roof though.  I'm thinking automotive engine paint, but ford blue isn't what I'm going for..  Need a brown.
