How to install a chimney with your own hands?
Any country house is impossible to imaginewithout a stove or fireplace and, accordingly, a chimney, too. This device was developed many years ago, and for the whole history of its existence it has practically not changed in design and design. Therefore, like all old appliances, the installation of a chimney by one's own hands is one of the simplest and uncomplicated types of construction work, and absolutely everyone can cope with this. And do not have to be a professional builder - just prepare the necessary set of tools and follow the installation steps listed below in our article.
Where should I start?
Installing the chimney with your own hands,attention to the fact that installation is easiest to produce from the bottom up, that is, from the boiler to the roof. The pipe links are assembled in series - each of its segments is inserted into the previous one, and so until the length of the device reaches the required values. Also, in order to protect the instrument as much as possible from moisture ingress, some use a special heat-resistant sealant, which can not lose its properties even at temperatures of the order of 800-1000 degrees Celsius. Such a design will be as reliable and resistant to external factors as possible.
We make the chimney by our own hands: fixing the device and mounting
It should be noted that the working joints in the systemHeating should be fixed with special clamps. And along the laying line with a periodicity of 150-1200 centimeters are mounted additionally the brackets that fasten the device to the elements of the structure. When installing the chimney with your own hands, remember that the installation should be made away from contact with the electrical cables or gas pipes. The minimum distance between these communications should be at least 100 centimeters.
Do not forget that this deviceperiodically needs to be cleaned, so when you mount a steel or brick chimney with your own hands, install a door in the lower part of it, in order to conveniently remove the soot. In this case, the materials of the working channels installed along the internal walls and partitions should be made of non-combustible materials. If you are unable to perform the installation using this algorithm, use special casing pipes. It should be noted that the installation of a removable part for cleaning soot should be made only for those who have boilers running on solid fuel or diesel fuel (so-called "combined"). Gas devices do not form soot, so it is not necessary to make holes and a cleaning door.
The part of the chimney that projects outwards must be protected from the wind in addition. Usually in such cases, use weather vanes, deflectors or special grids.
Thus, a properly installed and constructed pipe allows to provide an effective smoke outlet, which arises from the combustion of materials in the boiler, outwards.
