What are the risks involved in installing a pellet stove pipe? What are the risks involved in installing a pellet stove pipe?
A pellet stove pipe is a very important part of a pellet stove system used to heat your home. Installation is a project that shouldn't be undertaken by a novice, nor should it be ignored, as this is how the stove is vented. One risk of installing a pellet stove pipe is measuring to get the correct diameter. You will also need to measure the lengths needed and elbows needed to reach the outside of the house. The pipe will need to be the required distance above roof level for proper ventilation. Another risk is having the pipe too close to the wall as it is a combustible surface. You need to check with local authorities about zoning and health issues involving the installation of a pellet stove pipe to be sure you are within local codes.
