I'm fitting a room-sealed stove into a tanked room built into a bank. I want to use a room-sealed setup. However, I cannot take the air from low-down, as ground level is a fair bit higher than the stove. I could however take the air-feed pipe through the roof near to the flue, and take it from just above the roof. I wonder if this might be a good idea, as we do tend to get a lot of wind, which causes backdraughts on one chimney, even though it is as high as the roof apex, and complies with Building Regulations Part J.

Has anyone done anything like this? Is there any obvious pitfall or reason why I should not do this?

Hi Ivan,

Stoves on fishing boats are fitted like you are describing.  The flue and intake need to be quite near each other and make a balanced flue in effect and counter acts back drafts.  Refleks oil stoves have downloads describing how this might be carried out iirc.

In that case, that's what I'll do. I was thinking it would be a bit like a balanced flue - which is not a bad thing, considering the problems we have with one chimney when the wind blows.
