hi all, new to the pellet mill. I’ve been using a wood insert on my first floor for sometime. With an upcoming basement redo, I’d like to add a pellet stove in our basement. While most of basement will be finished, the pellet stove would be located in the unfinished section so it can vent into. masonry chimney flue outlet (8”). I’d have the install done professionally and would imagine I’d need a connector vent pipe to the connect into an insulated ss liner. I gave a few questions: I’m looking to heat the basement as a priority and any additional heat that I cAn get to travel upstairs would be welcomed. Would the unfinished nature of where the pellet stove would be likely rob a ton of heat it produces? My limited understanding of pellet stoves is that you basically have heat “on demand” and have a great deal of controllability with heat output. This would be compared to my wood insert, where if you load to much wood in, we’ll then, you’re stuck with that heat because you can’t “turn it off “ so to say. The unfinished part of basement is roughly 20 feet by about 12 feet, so about 240 sq ft. The finished part is about 20 by 25, so about 500 sq feet. The rooms are connected by the one door. Will a pellet stove have any issues with heating this space? The masonry flue outlet in basement would give the pellet stove about 19 or so feet of flue length. Will a basement install have any inherent draft or negative pressure problems?
