How To Install Your Timber Ridge Wood Stove
Does your family have to wear layers of clothing just to keep warm inside your home during the winter months? No one should have to be uncomfortably cold in their own home, so if you feel like you need an extra source of heat during the colder months then a wood stove may be a great option. Some homes can’t be efficiently heated with just a regular furnace, and the cost to run such large furnaces can be uncomfortably high during the winter. There is also nothing quite like the natural radiance and warmth that a Timber Ridge wood stove can provide.
If you are thinking about purchasing a wood stove you will need to decide whether to have the professionals install it or if you want to install it yourself. While it is recommended that you let someone experienced install your wood stove to ensure that it is done properly, if you follow the manufacturer’s directions very carefully you should be able to safely install your Timber Ridge wood stove on your own. Here are some of the steps you will need to follow if you want your stove to be installed safely.
Step 1: Remove Parts
Before you can set up your stove you need to remove all of the parts from within the stove body. If you need help removing the parts from a leg unit, simply refer to the instructions in your Owner’s Manual.
Step 2: Figure Out Where Your Stove Will Be Placed
Hopefully you figured out where your stove would be placed before you purchased it, because you will need to place your stove on a flat surface that is made from non-combustible materials. You will also need to make sure that you place your Timber Ridge wood stove far away from any combustible materials that may be located around it. For instructions on proper combustible material clearance, refer to your Owner’s Manual.
Step 3: Install The Stovepipe
The stovepipe must be installed between the chimney and the stove, within the flu collar. If you have any trouble locating the area where your stovepipe should be installed, refer to your Owner’s Manual. There you should find detailed instructions and/or illustrations to help you locate the exact area where your Timber Ridge wood stove pipe should be placed.
Step 4: Connect Stove Pipe Sections
When you are connecting your stove pipe sections, make sure that the crimped (male) ends always face towards the stove.
Step 5: Check The Top Of Your Chimney
The top of your chimney needs to extend at least 3 feet above its entrance through the roof in order to maintain a good draft. You will also need to make sure that it is at least 2 feet higher than any other portion of your roof that is located within 10 feet of the chimney.
Step 6: Follow Instructions Exactly
Do not try to cut corners when you are installing your Timber Ridge wood stove. If you attempt to make your own modifications then your warranty may be voided and you may put your home and your family at risk. To ensure your safety and to keep your warranty intact, always install your stove according to the Owner’s Manual instructions.
If you have any questions about how to install your wood stove, don’t hesitate to contact the manufacturer for clarification. If you are uncomfortable installing your own stove, call a professional installation company to take care of the installation process for you.
