My 13 year old pellet stove's auger motor is going so it's time for new heat. I have decided either the Alaska channing III or Reading Lehigh. I am doing the installation myself and have a few questions.
1 - My pellet stove has a 4" rear double wall pipe for venting. (No chimney). I will be using a power vent on the new stove. Do I need to make the 4" hole on my house bigger?
2 - Can you bring air in from outside to feed the burn? If so, what size pipe does it need? I presently use a 2" flexible steel pipe for my pellet stove.
3 - Does the reading Lehigh have a blower option? I called the Reading company and they said no, but their brochure says it does have the option. My dealer thought it did but wasn't sure.
