Pellet burning wood stoves offer a convenient alternative to wood burning models. They create the same attractive flames and soothing warmth, but require a fraction of the effort to operate and maintain. Some people even prefer them to gas stoves because of how easy it is to safely store and use pellet fuel. But regardless of why you choose to get a pellet burning wood stove, we can help you find one that fits your home's decor and budget.
If the stove can meet proper clearances from all sides and floor protection, and of course be vented properly, yes, this can be done. Please check all clearance and venting requirements for any particular stove that interests you and compare it to your proposed application.

What does one have to do if installing a pellet stove to replace a fireplace in a moblie home ?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on July 30, 2013
First, you would need to ensure that the pellet stove in question has been tested and listed for use in mobile home applications. Moreover, it is likely you will need to replace the entire chimney pipe system and replace it with type L pellet vent pipe. We do carry everything needed.

Will a pellet stove operate if you lose electricity?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 26, 2014
Unfortunately, no. Pellet stoves rely on electricity to operate, as they require a combustion and convection fan that operates on 110 volts. A 110 volt battery backup or generator would be needed for the unit to continue operation during a power outage.
