    No one wants to have to make holes in their wall, but if you're installing a pellet-burning appliance you may not have a choice. But you can at least reduce the number you have to make with this Dura-Vent PelletVent Pro 3 Inch Wall Thimble Air Intake Kit. By allowing you to bring combustion air through your wall thimble, this ingenious kit makes it possible for you to avoid creating a second hole through your wall. That means that your installation will be simpler and, more importantly, that your appliance's venting system will have less of a visual impact on its surroundings. Using one of these wall thimble air intake kits truly has no downside.

    I have a basement wall that is 13" thick. Do you have a 3" thimble that can expand to that thickness of outside wall? The very outside 6" is brick and the inside is 2" x 4" framed wall with drywall on the inside.

    from Maple Valley, WA asked:

    Can I have this Dura-Vent PelletVent Prop 3 inch wall thimble air intake kit come from a garage? Does code require it to come from the outside only?
    1 Answers
    You cannot draw in outside combustion air from a garage. The intake pipe must make direct contact with the outdoors.

    from Salisbury, MD asked:
    September 29, 2015
    I'm looking into setting up a pellet stove and I was told that there is a silicone that you use in between the joints on the Dura-Vent system where they lock together. Is this correct? Is this required? If so, what do you use and is there any sealant required where the pipe slides through the thimble? Is there something to keep stuff from going into the intake?
    1 Answers
    The use of 500 degree silicone sealant is not required for PelletVent Pro when joining pipe sections. Sealant is required when connecting to the appliance outlet, with the appliance adaptor and when using telescoping sections. It is also recommended to use 500 Degree RTV Silicone Sealant for the portion of PVP that passes through the thimble. Lastly, an intake guard will be included with the exterior portion of the thimble to prevent rain and pests.

    The walls in my garage are about 6 1/2 inches thick. Can I use this thimble for my installation?
    1 Answers
    This thimble kit fits walls between 4" and 6 1/2" thick. Assuming your appliance is approved for installation in a garage, this kit would work for you.

    Can the fresh air intake hose be in direct contact with a drop ceiling panel? I am routing the hose through the basement ceiling and through the rim joist and the ceiling is vinyl fiberglass.
    1 Answers
    It can indeed. The manufacturer does not have any specific clearance requirements for the hose. In my experience, the first couple feet of the hose at the appliance connection can get hot, but it remains quite cool beyond that.

    from Massachusetts asked:
    September 17, 2013
    Can the 3 inch wall thimble air intake kit be used with an exhaust that vents straight out (see the attached example), or does it have to have a vertical pipe on the exterior side? How far from the exhaust does the intake have to be? I currently have a pipe that is vertical, but we moved the location of our stove to the front of my house and do not want a vertical chimney, if possible.
    1 Answers
    This product can indeed be used with a completely horizontal pipe application. However, please keep in mind this product is intended for 3 inch PelletVent Pro, which actually has an O.D. of 3 5/8 inches. The air intake should be at least 12 inches from the termination, unless the manufacturer of the stove specifies that it can be closer.

    Pellet stove wall thimble
    The wall thimble worked perfectly for application in an 8" poured wall. Cold air inlet gives a peace of mind knowing that the stove receives the necessary combustion air without creating a negative air pressure situation in the basement.
    ProsEase of installation.
