What type of chimney flex liner can I use for the exhaust on a pellet stove? It will be going in an existing masonry chimney.
I have a Whitfield Advantage II WP2 Insert pellet stove and 25' Masonry chimney.

Answer:According to the manual for your stove, the cutoff to switch from 3 inch to 4 inch occurs at approximately 23 feet. As such, a 4 inch stainless steel flex liner should be used.

Answer:Per national code, the termination for a conventional pellet vent appliance cannot be closer than 4 feet to a door or window. Please be sure to check with your local code office, as they may have a different requirement. Local jurisdiction has final authority. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Can a Harmon XXV pellet stove be vented directly into a 12 x 8 lined masonry chimney? Is there sufficient draft?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012
Answer:Per the published information for this stove, it is indeed possible to vent this model into a clay lined masonry chimney, as long as the clay tiles are proven to be in good condition. The combustion fan will provide adequate positive pressure for the unit to draft in this way.
Lining the chimney with a 4 inch stainless steel liner is recommended if the condition of the chimney is questionable in any way.
