Venting

Appliances that burn fuel need to be vented through a proper chimney. The chimney can be composed of masonry (brick, stone, or cement) or metal (stainless steel, aluminum or galvanized steel). The appliance and the fuel it uses determine the type of chimney you need. Fire Glow’s highly trained, experienced sales people can help you get your appliance matched with the correct chimney and installed to current standards.

Note: if you are replacing pipe, make sure you know the manufacturer. Most chimney pipe is only compatible with pipe of the same brand. If you aren’t sure what brand your pipe is, bring it in and we will be happy to assist you, whether it be in getting you the pipe you need or directing you to another place that can help.

Class A Chimney:  Class A Chimney pipe is for appliances like wood stoves, oil burners and certain EPA fireplaces. It’s a double wall, stainless steel pipe which can go through walls and stand outside the house. Choose from Selkirk or TLC brand chimney systems.
Pellet Chimney: This pipe is designed specifically for venting pellet appliances and works best
with them.  Fire Glow has a variety of brands in stock!

Direct Vent Chimney – Selkirk: This is for gas fireplaces and freestanding stoves.

B-vent Chimney – Selkirk: This is also called a natural air chimney. This is for something like a gas furnace.
