Setting up the
Vista with Pedestal to burn air from outside the house

OUTSIDE AIR SUPPLIED FROM VENTILATED CRAWLSPACE
Vista with Pedestal Outside Combustion Air Through Floor Diagram
Install a length of 4" rigid or flexible aluminum intake pipe down through a 4-1/8" hole in the floor anywhere under the pedestal, extending below the floor joists and insulation. The intake pipe doesn't attach directly to the stove: snip and flare the pipe at the top to hold it in place. Use silicone cement to glue a piece of 1/4" wire rodent mesh at the bottom.
OUTSIDE AIR SUPPLIED THROUGH BACKWALL

Remove the air intake cover from the back of the pedestal and insert a length of 4" rigid or flexible aluminum intake pipe extending through 4-1/8" hole in outside wall behind the stove. Attach a standard 4" dryer vent termination on the outside of the wall, removing the flapper plate and substituting a piece of 1/4" rodent mesh silicone-cemented in place.
