Do you need to vent a stove?

Electric stoves do not need to be vented. Gas stoves also do not

need to be vented, altho a hood that is vented outside would be a

good idea to cut down on the cooking odors and fumes that might be

given off by the burning gas. Same goes for propane burning stoves.

All wood burning stoves need to be vented to the outside. I've seen

some cases where people have vented stoves into the attic. Please

don't ever do this because the grease from cooking will build up in

insulation and underside of the roof, causing a very explosive
