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 of the burn pot (from the rear) and measures 1 1/2" inside diameter (I.D.). The connection can be made with a metal 1 7/8" I.D. coupler and pipe (see your stove's manual), 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". If connecting to an existing chimney use 4" pellet vent pipe.
- The outside air intake should be increased to 3".
