Can I use a balanced flue with my pellet stove?


Last Update a year ago

Some wood pellet stoves can be run on a balanced flue, however it is generally much better to have a separate air supply. This is based on science. 

Because wood pellet appliances must be flued vertically to comply with manufacturer’s instructions and Building Regulations, the air intake from a balanced flue would generally be from a significant height. This would be likely to cause issues with draught pressure and is the main reason that we don't recommend it.
