Connecting a pellet stove to existing ductwork
Q. Our house has an older model forced-air oil furnace and a new hot-water boiler oil furnace. With the rising cost of oil we would like to have a pellet stove installed using the duct work from the old forced air furnace. Is it possible? We don’t want to purchase a pellet stove and not be able to use it. We are mainly wanting the pellet stove as backup.
A. I see no reason why you can’t install a pellet stove in lieu of your old furnace, but I suggest that you contact a stove dealer who handles pellet stoves and have him or her come to your house to make sure it can be connected to the existing ductwork.by
