Can anyone give me a ball park on what I can expect to pay to install a pellet stove? I will putting it in a location where it can be easily vented, no long connections and I know that they are less expensive than a traditional wood stove.

Any ideas would be great...thanks!

Elvie03, It depends on local codes. You can not install it without a permit! Permits are issued by the town and the town can tell you what the requirements are. A pellet stove will need electric near by, wall or roof penetration and resealing for venting, install of a pad and/or wall covering for fire safety and finally the assembly of the stove its self. A Very Handy person CAN do it themselves, but GET PERMITS and Report it to your Insurance Company.

If you are buying it at someplace like Home Depot or Lowe's (I do not recommend this option) then they have install prices. If you are buying it from a Stove Dealer (highly recommended) they also have install prices. However, if you are buying one used, expect to pay somewhere around $500 for a proper install, without the hearth or wall covering. Most homeowners can (once they have the local codes) build the hearth and wall covering (if necessary) themselves with some furring strips, tile and cement board. If it is used, I would HIGHLY suggest you do as much prep work yourself. Make sure the electric is near by. Do not run an extension cord! Build your hearth and if necessary, the wall covering. Though even when not necessary, they look nice to "frame" the stove. Then have the professional come in and hook it all up.

Good Luck, Enjoy
