    In our house we had a woodstove in the basement hooked into the chimney (not a fireplace). When I installed the pellet stove I used a 3 inch to 5 inch adapter and vented through the same hole. This is the 2nd year of using it this way and have not had any problems. I was just wondering if this safe and properly installed?

    I think we'd need to see pic(s) to determine that.

    Did you install it?

    It'll also have a lot to do with the make/model of your stove and of course the type and condition of your chimney. Many pellet stoves require a stainless steel liner if vented into a chimney. It may operate fine that way, but it likely will not be in code. Codes are most often drawn up for safety reasons.

    If you don't already have one installed, I would highly recommend installing a combination smoke and CO2 alarm.
