    Combustion air intake sizing

    I just bought a country hearth 2000 freestanding wood stove and would like to run a fresh air intake to it. There is a air intake connection in the back which is only 2.5" dia I was thinking either 3" or 4"? Not sure how to size combustion air for a woodstove

    Check install manual. Most mags give needed info.

    Well they list a kit for it but for the life of me I can't find the kit online anywhere. I guess I could call them and maybe they will tell me the right size pipe to run

    Sweet! I appreciate it. It looks like its only a 2" intake, the same as it is on the stove. Do you think I will have any problems getting it up to temp using outside combustion air especially when it gets real cold?

    it might, but it's better than the alternative of drawing inside air and having cold makeup air enter the home.

    I think that's a pretty good payoff.
