    I'm having a hard time finding any 6 inch pellet stove vents. I'm looking for vents for the "A maize ing heat" corn/pellet furnace which requires 6 inch venting. Anyone have any ideas?

    Depending on the install location etc, can't you use wood stove venting. That comes in 6", single, double and I believe triple wall available.

    That unit uses standard chimney parts. Uses natural draft with the pot being force fed air.

    Oh I'm sure they do have it but I was just curious about different brands.

    Yeah I probably could use stove pipe

    Am I going to need a power vent if I want to just go out of the basement through a cinder block and up a few feet? I'd rather not go outside and up all of the way past the ridge of the roof

    From reading the manual found here, that unit does not seem to have the capability of either direct vent or power vent. It requires a chimney to extend above the roofline and also the installation of the "included barometric damper".

    The manual is not very good, so I would clarify that with either your dealer or the company itself.
