    Hello,
    I am extremely new to pellet stoves etc; My question is, can a pellet stove be installed into a single flew(not sure of spelling) chimney and share air space with boiler?

    If the answer is "yes" does it require a stove pipe be installed all the way up to above chimney top?


    thanks for any help and ideas offered.

    I was thinking of venting horizontally out a wall,if chimney is not applicable

    Any thoughts of that?



    thx

    single flue? as in venting the pellet stove into the exact same flue that the boiler is using?

    If that's the case, it's a no go. No two appliances can legally connect to the same flue.



    Venting horizontally out the wall is usually the easiest way to do things and requires the least amount of work.

    it's all relatively the same. pellet pipe, pellet pipe thimble, and then some type of termination cap that keeps birds out.


    If someone doesn't beat me to it, i'll get ya part numbers later, i'm studying right this minute :(
