    My pellet stove is going to be installed with the pipe going up and then out of our home. However, it exits my home underneath a wooden deck. How close would you let it be to the ground and to the deck?

    Can you provide a pic from further out that shows the deck in relation to the grade? Your manual should list the clearances.

    Are you talking terminating it under your deck or running it out the side?

    i'd say that's a no go if you're thinking of terminating it under the deck . that needs to exit past the deck .

    think about it . you'd have your stove venting poisonous gas directly under where people are ?

    Bad idea for many reasons, IMO. I can't believe this is acceptable by stove manufacturers and building code.

    Think of the flammables that likely collect under there. Don't use the stove for a few days, leaves build up against the vent. You light the stove, then what?
