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. Pellet stoves can be hooked up to existing chimneys.
Can a pellet stove be vent straight out a wall?
Horizontal venting is the simplest and cheapest way to remove the exhaust gases from your pellet stove. The vent pipe is connected to an adapter at the back of the stove, then run out through the wall adapter plate to a distance of at least six inches from the exterior wall.
How far from the wall should a pellet stove be?
The outer surfaces of a pellet stove dont get as hot as the surfaces of wood stoves or fireplaces, so most can be placed closer to combustibles—typically 3 inches from walls at the sides and 1 inch from a back wall.
Does a wood stove raise your insurance?
Does a wood-burning stove increase home insurance premiums? Your premiums will likely increase if you have a wood-burning or pellet stove, but the increase is usually insignificant. You might see higher costs from wood stoves than from pellet types because wood-burning stoves cause far more residential fires.
