In selecting a location for your pellet unit, keep
the following thoughts in mind.
The pellet vent pipe and outside air kits both need to reach outside the
structure so locating the unit on an exterior (outside) wall will allow the
least complicated installation to be used.
The unit cannot be vented below a window, between two windows, under a
deck , or in an alcove.
The unit must have a 3' (three foot) vertical rise in the flue system.
This can be located either inside our outside of the structure.
When looking for a good location for the unit
inside the structure, you will want to first check out the
" footprint" the stove will require. The term "footprint" refers to the
space the unit and its clearance areas will occupy. For example , the 25-pdv
is 281/2" wide and 281/2" deep needs 6" clearance in the front
, rear and both sides so it would have a 401/2" by 401/2" footprint. No
combustible materials would be able to be located within the footprint
(furniture, drapes, etc).
listed " floor protector is required to be placed under all of our
freestanding pellet units unless they are being placed on a cement floor
such as a basement floor.
Floor protectors come in various
For Models 25-pdv, 25-pdvt, 55-shp22, and
55-trp22, The minimum floor protector for
these units is 36" X 36" which should allow at least six inches (6") of
protection at the rear and each side, and six inches (6") minimum in the
front of the unit.
25-pdvc, 25-pdvct, 55-shp10, and 55-trp10
The minimum floor protector for these units is 31" X 32" which should allow at least one inch (1") of protection at
the rear, four inches (4") on each side, and six inches (6") in the front of
