How do you determine the height of a chimney your building?

Chimney height is determined by a number of factors and difficult to answer here without more information.If you're installing a new device ( a woodstove,for example) the information provided with the unit will give you an idea.There is a certain height required above the roof and a certain height above any roof peaks which may be located close to the chimney.

If you have other no way of measuring it, one way is to go outside and find a point on the ground which is at a 45-degree angle from the top of the chimney. Then, the distance from that point to the base of the chimney is the same as the height of the chimney. (This would be a right triangle, with 2 equal sides.) The only requirement of this is that the ground MUST be level so that the point from which you measure is level with the bottom of the chimney.

OR are you asking "how tall should/must a chimney be?" I just realized, that may be the question. It's not clear.
