    Default double wall stovepipe temp

    We installed two woodstoves in the new house. They both have black double walled pipe connected to the stove. We use those magnetic thermometers attached to the pipe to monitor the temp. In the past, in our old house, we also had the same type of thermometers, but had single walled pipe. It would seem to me, that that on the double wall pipe, the temp showing on the gauge would be quite a bit cooler than the temp inside the pipe and maybe an indication of temps inside the burn zone would actually mean that the temp inside the pipe would be higher than it should be. Anyone else use black double wall pipe? How do you monitor your temperature? Thanks....Louis

    You will not get a good reading with the double wall pipe. There is cooler air that runs between the inner and outter pipe. You really need to put it on the stove closest to the flue collor to get the best reading. Hope this helps T
