What kind of venting does a pellet stove need?
Also asked, does a pellet stove need venting?
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. You can run the pipes so they vent directly outside through an exterior wall or you can connect it to an approved chimney with the use of an adaptor. 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 degrees.at 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.
