The Chimney Configurator

This tool is designed to help you determine how much insulated chimney you will need for your unique installation. The resulting configuration can then be printed and brought to your local Excel chimney dealer. The configuration tool generates a chimney system based on the assumption that you are installing a wood stove.

NOTICE:This installation configuration is only an approximation. Please contact your contractor or your nearest chimney dealer for complete instructions and list of all required parts

For more complex installations, please contact your nearest chimney dealer.
