stove pipe joints

I've been told that on gas fired appliances
that the vent pipe goes from the appliance
big end to the chimney small end
but on wood burning stoves the vent pipe goes
from the small end appliance to the big end
chimney. Is this true?

Question Clarification Requested

Hello: Bill Beattie

I may not be the only one who does not understand what you mean by big end & small end???? What is often "Heard" or "Told" isn't always true nor fact. Check your local codes for requirements.

Appliances, other then most stoves, have a short length of vent pipe preinstalled. All that usually needs to be done is extend that exhaust vent tubing using vent piping of the same type and size.

Metal vent tubing is premanufactured with corrugated ends. One end is female and the other is male. Installing is simply inserting the ends together.

In some areas of the country and or other countries or locations anywhere around this "Rock we call Earth," securing the joints with tiny sheet metal screws is required.

Wraping the joints with metal ducting tape may also be required. Bracketing the pipe extensions to the framing of the structure may also be required and using a ceiling bucket to install the hot vent pipe from physically touching the roofing is also required.

Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes and solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair proceedures and instructions, pictorials and schematics, which may be available online.

crimped end

the crimp (female end) should always go toward the termination.
