I'm currently renting a house heated by electric baseboards - and I got my November bill - OUCH! I'm thinking of getting a pellet stove, but since I don't own the house I can only install the stove temporarily. My thought is to create a little hearth out of bricks or cinder blocks to protect the floor and wall, and direct vent through a window. I'd pull the bottom sliding pane and replace it with a plywood sheet with a hole in it for the exhaust vent. That way, at the end of the winter I can just pull the stove and replace the window. Any thoughts or considerations? Am I going to burn my house down? Has anyone done this before, or have any suggestions? Thanks.
