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.
Do pellet stoves need to be vented outside?
Clearances from exterior fixtures and walls vary depending on local building codes, but all pellet stoves must vent to a location where materials such as leaves wont plug the opening and the pipe should be at least 3 feet away from the air intake for forced air appliances and gas meters.
How much does it cost to get a pellet stove installed?
Installation Costs The cost to install a pellet stove averages between $300 and $1,000. A free standing pellet stove should be installed in a wide open area and will need to rest on a heat resistant hearth pad to prevent damage to the floor. Hearth pads range in price from $40 to $300.
