What kind of venting does a pellet stove need?

For instance, wood-burning stoves will always be vented through the roof of your house, but pellet-burning stoves can be vented vertically through the roof, or horizontally through the wall to the outdoors. Same with gas stoves – venting can be routed in either direction – vertically or horizontally.

Venting: Unlike wood stoves, pellet stoves do not need a chimney and can be vented out through a side wall. This allows for more flexibility on the installation and also reduces the overall installation costs.

Beside above, what kind of chimney do I need for a pellet stove? Unlike wood stoves, pellet stoves do not require the same need for a full chimney system. They can be vented out through the wall or roof using special insulated double walled pellet piping. If venting into a masonry chimney, it’s recommended to use a stainless steel liner.

Also Know, what is the best way to vent a pellet stove?

Venting RequirementsPellet stoves are vented in a couple of ways.

The vent pipe in both cases must be a minimum of 3 inches from any combustible materials.

How hot is the exhaust on a pellet stove?

Maybe 120 to 300 the unit.. less after some pellet vent. A lot of air is mixed in, which lowers the temp. Mine seems to run about 150-200 after 12 feet of pellet vent.
