free standing installation ?
So I am thinkng about purchasing a used free standing fireplace, its about 35 x 21 x 34 so it pretty good size my question is this. I really dont want the exhaust pipe..(chimney).. to run up the outside of the house. I live in a two-story house with no basement and it would be on the ground level. What I would like to do is run it up the inside along one of the walls. I have read that the chimney needs to be 9' from the wall.. I will be using double wall insulated pipe. How warm will the chimney get? will it be safe to run through the upper floor, leaving 2" space around the pipe, as I have read and through the drywall and all that? sorry this so long.. and thanks in advance for your help.
