Couple ?'s regarding Pellet Stove FP Insert

mr.johnsNovember 18, 2010

Hello,

I'm getting ready to buy a used Whitfield Pellet Stove FP Insert and have a few questions.

The pellet stove will be placed in my existing fireplace which was built in 1920. This old fireplace has the old style turn handle to open the flute, no topper, etc.

The purchase I'm getting ready to make is just for the Stove and surround panel. What else do I need to properly vent it? I'm thinking I need a block off panel and some venitlation tubing to get it to the block off panel.

Also does the vent tubing need to go all the way to the top of the chimney?

Thanks in advance!
