You see, stove venting varies by the type of fuel being burned in the stove. For instance, wood-burning stoves will always be vented through the roof of your house, but pellet-burning stoves can be vented vertically through the roof, or horizontally through the wall to the outdoors. Same with gas stoves - venting can be routed in either direction - vertically or horizontally.
