It all depends on the power if this is a stove, then you need to proceed from kilowatts.
If less than 3.5 kW – then a pipe with a cross section of 0.14 m x 0.14 m
If from 3.5 kW to 5.2 kW, then a pipe with a cross section of 0.14 m x 0.20 m
If from 5.2 kW and more, then a pipe with a cross section of 0.14 m x 0.27 m
If we figured out the cross section or the approximate area of the pipe, now we will figure out how long the necessary pipe is.
It is necessary to proceed from the fact that the minimum pipe length is 0.5 meters. This is according to SNiP 41-01-2003
It is also of great importance – in which place the pipe will be located, from which your roof is made.
Here are a number of rules that you should know before buying pipes and installing them:
The pipe should be higher by 0.5 meters of a flat roof.
If it is 1.5 meters from the roof skate, then its height should be 0.5 meters above the skate or parapet.
If it is located at a distance of 1.5 to 3 meters from the skate, then the height is allowed to be on the skate.
If the pipe is further 3 meters from the skate of the roof, then the height should be higher than the line on the horizon from the skate of 10 degrees.
*Below are all the rules on one example.
