Default Venting a pellet stove

Greetings fellow yurt dwellers,
I'm getting ready to install a pellet stove in my new yurt and had a question about venting: the stove guys say the stove can be vented straight out, horizontally without any vertical rise, rather than a traditiobnal chimmney. Anyone have any practical experience with this and a yurt? Any risk of damaging the outside cover?

thanks in advance!

Dave

They are correct because the pellet stove creates its own draft with the fan, however, give yourself plenty of clearance from the end of the pipe to the yurt cover. There is still some soot that comes out and can blacken the fabric(s).

Hi Dave,

The stove can be vented straight out the back, but this might require some sealant between your stove flashing and side cover to prevent water from infiltrating. When you vent higher on the wall the exterior piece of flashing can slip under the top cover valance and not require a sealant, which is preferable.

Hmm, not sure what the reasoning is. I have a pellet stove insert that went into our old fireplace and they used flexpipe up the chimney. The Pellet stove creates a bit of ash and having it contained in that pipe really makes it easy to clean. I am thinking that a pipe that lets that fine ash escape, is going to create a dusty condition. As for just using the chimney, I think the reason may be because the stove will not heat the chimney enough to create a draft strong enough to take all the flu gasses out, so you could risk them entering the house. Here is the flex pipe they used on my install:

We have friends that installed their pellet stove in the fireplace opening. I can't remember if the pellet stove had a flue installed within the existing chimney.
