Pellet stove

Recommended Posts

Was thinking of replacing the wood stove with a pellet stove and was wondering if I could vent it with the existing clay lined chimney. Thanks in advance

You should be able to, I have seen it done this way before. Just be sure to keep it clean and check the clay for cracks just like any other wood stove.

Not all the stoves can vent into a clay lined chimney. the ones we handled you would need to line the chimney with a 3" or 4" pipe for proper venting. Alot of places it is no longer legal to use a clay lined chimney. You need to line the clay liner with a stainless steel pipe for a wood stove and a aluminum pipe for gas furnace and water heater. There are venting guide lines to go by for sizing the pipe so be sure to check it out first.

You may want to do the math on the pellet stove. I have owned two of them in the past and although during owning the first one it made sense when pellets were around 2$ a bag it didnt take long before the demand went up and the prices with it till they reach nearly $5 a bag. Over the course of a month it was costing upwards of $100. So with running it on those chilly days in early fall and spring and then most regularly in the winter months it cost just about a grand a year if your using it as a "regular" heat source. If its just going to be a "now and then" type of deal then I say go for it. They do have thier place but they are definitly not any sort of "affordable solution" to heating.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
