General Things About Pellet Stove Installation


There are many things to consider before attempting your pellet stove installation. Naturally it would be less complicated to hire someone to do it for you, but if you are experienced in Do-It-Yourself projects, it's probably something you can handle.

The main thing to remember is to follow the installation instructions by the manufacturer. If you're ready for installation, you've already considered whether you need a free-standing unit or an insert which fits into an existing fireplace, how much room you have, what configuration you need and so on. Hopefully, you've done your research and have chosen a unit that will meet your heating needs and is appropriate for the space you've chosen to install it.

Freestanding units will need to be in a central location and in most cases, will need to be a certain distance from the walls or any combustible items. Ventilation is essential and you should never direct vent a pellet stove as it will most likely cause damage to the exterior. Venting is relatively simple though and utilizes a class L chimney, which has a galvanized aluminum exterior and stainless steel interior.

You'll want to vent it through the roof if possible. With the proper chimney liner, it is possible to vent through an existing chimney. For obvious safety reasons, make sure the vent doesn't blow towards a door, window or walkway. The vent pipe needed, PL vent pipe is double walled and must be gas sealed to prevent exhaust leaks.

Be sure to check the manual and local codes for specifications.

If there is not an existing hearth or that type flooring, you will probably need special flooring to be installed first. This is to protect the floor from burning or damage caused by hot embers. The manufacturer's instructions will tell you how much floor space you need for your stove.

Contrary to wood stoves, pellet burning stoves do need electricity. Be sure you choose a spot that is near an appropriate outlet. You will need to make certain it can handle the voltage and that it is connected to a properly rated circuit breaker.

Other things that may be a factor in installation, particularly of the venting system are altitude, windy conditions, house pressure and clean out/maintenance. In some cases an  outside air source may be needed.

As you can see, though a somewhat simple concept and even installation, there are many critical matters involved.
