chimney for wood fired sauna heaterby Admin
Jul 2014

Message: Hi there, I am looking at buying one of your wood fired sauna stoves and am wondering about what kind of chimney I would use.  Our sauna is 8 x 8 x 7 and is located outdoors.  We have lots of wood available so we want to use a wood fired sauna heater.  What is the size of the chimney pipe and does it need to go out the side wall of the chimney or out the top? thanks  Cindy

Cindy our sauna heaters work with a standard 6" sauna stove pipe.  For the inside you can use regular single wall black stove pipe.  For added safety you can also use double wall which will not be as hot on the outer surface.  You will need to purchase a through wall kit for the chimney where it exists the sauna.  The outside sauna pipe shoudl be approved stainless steel piping with a rain cap and spark arrestor on the top.   The higher up your chimney goes the better it will be for creating a proper draft.  I sugest at least 6'. The sauna stoves also have both side chimneys and a top chimney with a spcial cap plug to plug the chimney port that you are not using. Dan

I would like to know if you recommend a double wall or single wall sauna chimney? thanks Darren Shores

Darren that is a good question. I would normally just suggest a single wall as you will get more heat output from it. However if the sauna is tight in room and the chimney vent straight up then I would suggest a double wall sauna chimney as you don't want to risk the chance of someone contacting a single wall chimney as it could cause a serious burn.
