We are considering the purchase of a pellet stove. We intend to place the pellet stove, centered, along a side wall in our front living room on the first floor of a cape. The side wall backs up to an attached garage. There is an AC vent directly above this location. Distance from the center of that wall to the front wall is about 6'. Venting into the garage then out the front wall is an option but not liking the look of that on the front of my house. I haven't even bothered showing her pictures of that sort of termination. I know what her answer will be. Our best option, to me, seems to be going into the garage and up, with two offsets, and through the garage roof. I've included three pics that, I hope, will make clear our working conditions. The first just shows the planned location of the stove. The second, from the side of the garage, shows the vent rise and the offset needed to clear the ac vent. The last, from the rear of the house, shows the second offset needed to clear some of the ac ductwork and to also clear the side wall of the second floor of the house. We are on Long Island. The total length of vent will be around 15' so it will be 4". I guess my main questions is does this look good? Also. I am familiar with the code requirements for wood stoves, 10' and 2' etc. Are there similar codes for pellet stoves or is it just according to the manufacturer? Please, let me know what I am overlooking. Thanks.
