Wood Stove Draw Heat Collar 6"
Do you have wood smoke coming into your home from your wood burning stove?
One cause could be the negative pressure from the ambient air in your home that is drawing the cold air down the chimney. This is something that occurs in air tight homes and lower level installed units.
The solution is to get the chimney warm thus creating a draw up the stack.
This collar is made of black stove pipe and an integrated electrical coil with high temp fire-resistant cord. When activated, this coil heats the air inside the stove pipe
A warm collar stove pipe warms the air inside the chimney creating a draw without any smoke. Once the air is warm and draft is established, a fire can be started safely and any smoke is sent up the chimney instead of into the room. Once the heat reaches a specific temperature the collar automatically will turn off. If the inside temp drops below a certain level the collar will turn back on.
The Back Draft Heat Collar must be plugged in to a standard electrical outlet to operate, costs around $300 annually in electricity (if you leave it plugged in all the time) according to the manual.
Installing the back draft collar will not negate certifications from the vent pipe manufacturer.
