They recommend pulling air from outside for combustion instead of room
air. Doesn't it take more energy to heat zero air than 70 degree air?
The dryer doesn't make a vacuum in the house why should the pellet stove?
Insane, at least my friends and family tell me that.
During heating season, when the dryer runs it blows out the heated air and
it is replaced with outside air that must be heated too. What is insane
about that statement?
When a heating appliance burning fuel uses inside air for combustion, it
will vent to the outside and that air is draw into the house also. What is
insane about that? Some of those appliances also have air leaks in the
burner path that allows heated air to flow through even when not in use,
thus wasting energy, thus the preference for outside air for combustion.
Fuel burning heating appliances (as opposed to electric) are happy with any
air that has enough oxygen to support combustion, no matter the source.
