I am thinking of getting a cast iron gas fired stove fitted in our
cellar. As there is no chimney flue, it would need to be fan
extracted and discharge fumes out of stainless steel flue at the front
wall of the house.
Can anyone tell me of any regulations for the flue height, free space
around the top end of the flue pipe, proximity to opening windows etc.
Alternatively can it just port via a boiler style vent - stainless
grill arrangement? If so are there any regs about free space around
them and proximity to opening windows?
I thought LPG in cellars was completely off limits?
I agree see if there is a room sealed version.
A conventional flue for this application, its correct sizing, height and
termination is a substantial subject and you are strongly recommended
(for once) to get pro help from the outset.

As I said before the plan is to vent out to the outside through the
front wall of the house. I believe there is a choice here - balanced
flue, or fan flue. The former is sealed, so the oxygen supply comes
from outside, the latter drawing its air supply from the room and
extracting the fumes.
Does anyone have any experience/advise about these alternatives. Also
please refer to my original question about the location of outlets
e.g. proximity to opening windows, free space requirements around the
outlet, height above the ground etc
