Stove Works recommends professional installation of our hearth products.
England's Stove Works strongly recommends
installation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors when installing
ANY type of stove.
The through-the-wall installation is the least expensive and
simplest installation. In a through-the-wall installation you should be
mindful of the snowdrift line, as well as dead grass and leaves. We
recommend a three foot (3') minimum vertical rise on the inside or the
outside of the dwelling. Never terminate the end vent under a deck, in an
alcove, under a window or between two windows. Call (800) 516-3636 to
inquire about the
AC-3000 Through-the-Wall Kit.
To vent the unit through the wall, connect the pipe adapter
to the exhaust motor adapter. If the exhaust adapter is at least eighteen
inches (18") above ground level, a straight section of pellet pipe can be
used to initially pass through the wall (see Ill. 1 in manual). Your dealer or our
factory should be able to provide you with a kit that will handle most of
this installation, which will include a wall thimble that will allow the
proper clearances through a combustible wall. Once outside the structure, a
three-inch (3") clearance should be maintained to the outside wall and a
clean out tee should be placed on the pipe that extends through the wall. We
recommend a minimum of three feet (3') of vertical pipe with a 90-degree
turn away from the house. At this point, a one-foot (1') section and
horizontal cap will complete the installation (see Illustration 1 in manual). A wall
strap should be placed just below the last 90-degree section to make the
system more stable. If you live in an area that has heavy snowfall, it is
recommended the installation be taller than three feet (3') to get above the
Through the wall
Air Kit (PU-OAK)
Outside Air (Outside Combustion Air Intake)
Outside air is mandatory for this unit to operate properly.
This unit has been designed and tested with this connection,
because so many homes are airtight and there is not adequate combustion air
available inside the dwelling. The air intake pipe is located on the bottom
side of the burn pot (from the rear) and measures 11/2" inside diameter
(I.D.). The connection can be made with a metal 17/8" I.D. coupler and pipe, and should exit through the wall. Be sure to
secure the pipe to the unit with a clamp or aluminum tape. The outside end
of the pipe should be covered (screened) to prevent foreign matter from
entering the system. Our Outside Air Kit (Part Number PU-OAK) can be used.
If the unit is located below ground level, you will need to run the pipe up
and then outside the dwelling. NOTE: If the total run of the connection
exceeds 6', if more than 2 elbows are used, or if a basement installation,
use 3" metal pipe (and coupler) instead.

If an older unit,
measure the opening to determine what size pipe to use or couple to.

High Altitude Installation
If the unit is being installed at an altitude of 4,000 ft. above sea level or
higher, the following amendments to the chosen installation should be made:
The pellet vent pipe size should be increased to 4"
# AC-3100 vent kit) if choosing a "through-the-wall" installation.
connecting to an existing chimney use 4" pellet vent pipe.
- The outside air intake should be increased to 3".
