The pellet stove has a chimney BUT is only 3" and will only work with that stove.
At this time I think that this spring I will be getting the Channing III with a Direct Vent.
Kinda like ours,1972 12x60 with additions added on one side to equal 24x60,one addition is a concrete slab about 2' above ground so the cold creeps in thru,this part does have a 15' chimney which used to have a wood stove & where we plan to install a handfed coal stove ..soon ??? I haven't studied much on the Alaska products as they are not listed in the manufacturers section.Leisure Line is & we hear lots of positives about them,that is why i generally refer to their products.I definitely have to agree with the others on the power vent being better than a direct vent.Just think about using your leaf blower to blow your carpet clean instead of a vacuum, put the "drawing fan" on the outside to suck all the fumes out,rather than to try pushing them out a pipe that could leak somewhere,easy choice for me.!!
