free standing stove in a fireplace
I was told i could put a free standing stove in a fireplace, so i went out and bought one. it has a 6" flue, and i dont think i can get enough room after removing my damper to get stove pipe up the chiminey. can i reduce the size? can i even put this thing in my fireplace? please help, i think i blew $600! also i did burn in it 2 times and had decent draft with nothing extending into the chiminey. i didnt get it to heat the house completely, only for 5-6 hrs a day while my wife and i are home.
