Woodstove chimney pipe options
I just bought a 4 month old Pacific Energy Alderlea T4 woodstove which I'm planning on installing in my garage. I need advice on chimney installation. I'm planning on installing the chimney straight up through the roof and there will be about 12 foot height to the ceiling.
I've already checked with a local woodstove dealer, but he was a bit peeved that I was buying a used stove rather than one of his new stoves. Now because of his reaction I'm looking at doing the chimney myself. I've been looking on the net regarding options and I see I can buy chimney pipe online. The dealer mentioned triple wall pipe for going through the ceiling, attic, and roof, but I see many people use double wall, and some have said not to use triple wall. What are the pros and cons of double vs. triple wall? How about the pros and cons of galvanized vs. stainless steel vs. black pipe. Is there a benefit other than appearance to the more expensive pipe?
