Our house used to have a wood burning stove in the basement. We also have a fireplace on the first floor of the house, leaving two separate vents in our chimney.
Before we bought the house it was renovated and a heat pump was added. As such, the basement wood stove was removed. The chimney vent for that stove is obviously still in the chimney so I was wondering if it is possible for a contractor to tap into that vent from our upstairs bedroom. The bedroom is directly adjacent to the chimney (behind drywall) but I figure if we can just tap into that vent it will save some time and money over adding a new stack.
I realize there are probably some building code restrictions in my area, but I am just trying to see if this is something that can be done?
