In follow up to a post about installing a wood burning sauna stove with a feed from inside the hot room or outside, here’s some more ranting:
I am building a wood sauna stove to place in a barrel sauna. Half will be inside and half out. The insulated chimney will be placed outside top between the end where the feeder door is and the sauna wall. What do you recommend in inches should the chimney be placed away from the sauna wall?
Technology to the rescue
Stove pipes require non combustable material around them
What materials are conductors and what are insulators?
- Cement is a heat conductor.
- Wood is a heat insulator.
