Can a pellet stove be vented underneath a second story deck?

What is the distance from the pipe termination to the deck?
I would think that would be against code.
I was thinking the same thing but it would terminate about 12 feet under the deck.
I don't think it can terminate under a deck. at least not here. the gasses will eat away at the wood anyway.
Ok wasn't sure I will have to try sometyhing else. Tks
As I am most familiar with Harman, but, I do believe their manual states that you have to be a minimum of 12" below a deck, so, therefore, yes you can, as long as you follow clearances.....
I would check local codes. personally it would take a while to do any real damage, but if it ever burnt...
youre not likely to find it specifically addressed in the local codes, which is why you need to go to your manual. Which is where I went for the 12" clearance. The manual (most stoves are UL listed these days, and that listing technically trumps code, but you'll have to convince your local inspector of that)
Im going to call englander and see what the clearances nd che
you'd best get that in writing, for the code official when he inspects it....if he/she were to question it
By all means check local codes.
Most local codes amount to following the manufacturer's installation instructions for a listed appliance.
Further 12 feet is 12 times the distance usually listed in the clearances in this case. There are likely other things in that area that can cause problems like windows and doors that can be opened.
LW how's the stoves selling this year?
I have the clearancs from windows but I dnt want to damage my deck . I will try to call Englander again tomorrow no luck with manuel or reaching them by phone. Thanks again to all!
actually, VERY good year......will know better by years' end, but, all-in-all, good. Pellets getting scarce tho......
12 feet is plenty of clearance. That is 1 1/2 stories. If you vent a stove out the side wall on a single story hose and have the min. 3' rise you are only 4' or so from the soffit.
I moved mine over in the basement so it comes out past the deck stairs and then vents. I have about 5' vertical before it 90's to the outside so it still pulls a great draft even though the evl is close to the top of the limit. I have seriously considered either running it up through the deck next to the exterior wall and through the soffit and just boxing it in on the outside where its visible or probably inside on corner of a room or on a wall and box the pipe in with sheetrock and then make triangular shelves for pictures or whatever. I bet the cat or dog would be stuck to it in those cold winter evenings sleeping.
Last I looked the code for this sort of stuff in Eastern Washington....refer to the owners manual.....
yes, some do. and then the manual says to check with the local codes. so who knows. if it is a concern the best thing to do is check with local codes. what they say goes. if they say follow the manual then so be it. the problem is, if something goes wrong, who is at fault, which may be the intention, I guess. lol
