    Both, my Fiance, and her mothers pellets stoves where hooked up and have been running with Only a straight pipe out of the wall, and the downspout vent.

    Neither have had the OAK installed, and these stoves have both been used for many years like this. The OAK is now installed on ours, as I've read about how important that is.

    So, my question is, how important is it to have the T, and 3' rise from the pellet chimney? These chimneys come out of the house around 6' from the ground, so my only concern, is efficiency. Will the 3' rise be better off, or is the straight pipe out the wall ok?

    Who manufactured your pellet stoves? All manufacturers' venting configurations are different.

    Doh,.. I meant to put that in the title,..

    I know ours is an Englander 25-PDV. Moms,.. I've not looked at yet,.. I only know that the same, ex husband helped to install it. He was all about cutting corners, to save a few $$$s it seems.

    Englander requires a minimum 3’ vertical in the vent either inside or outside.

    Yes,. that is what I read. I plan to correct that, I was just rather curious, if anyone knew what kind of difference it may make?

    It helps with the stove draft. It gives the stove a natural draft incase the power goes out it don’t fill your house with smoke. And thats what the engineers set the parameters for the operation of the stove to.

    Right on,.. that is what I would have concluded from common sense,.. lol. Just wanted to confirm there were not other reasons. I will be fixing that! As well, I will find out what Moms stove is, and what is the correct installation for hers as well.
