Question about Heating & Cooling
The approved method of exhaust venting is a full Type L or PL Pipe chimney. The height of which must be a minimum of 3 feet higher the highest roof structure. The outdoor air kit is used to pull fresh combustion air into the system from the outside. The exhaust venting can go horizontally for no more than 2 ft and then must elbow up to what I stated above. OR if you have a single story home, it can go up through the ceiling, through the attic and terminate above the roof. Any time the vent pipe passes thru a combustible surface it must have a fire stop.
Keep in mind, this was just a brief overview of what is required. Each stove manufacturer as it's on guidelines for safe installation that will not only meet EPA Standards, but also your local Building Code Standards and NFPA Standards. Not installing it properly or not having it professionally installed, may void any claim you may have in the future with your homeowners insurance, that resulted as a loss, because of the stove and/or it's installation.
Hope this helps.
