    My outside air vent is not installed on my stove. It really doesn't bother me but I had an idea and wanted to see if I could get some thoughts about it. I was thinking of running the vent up to my second floor so it could suck the cooler air into the stove. I have a small fan in the stairwell (opposite side of house) blowing warm air up and it does a good job at it. I was thinking that the vent might help to complete the air-flow cycle a little better and put that cooler air to good use. The only thing I can see being a problem is that the airflow through the vent may be poor so the stove may not burn as well.

    Anyways - your thoughts for a penny

    Everything that I read, been told and found through my own experience is that there is nothing better than going straight out the back ot the stove to the outside. The shorter the OAK the better...and sucking air from the inside causes a negative pressure situation. That being said, I think your best best would be to find a way to vent it to the outside.
