Wood Stove Label

Wood Stove Label on Wood Burning Appliances

The Wood Stove Label in Canada

– is attached to each appliance and has an individual serial number for your appliance.

(Special note: Appliances without labels are treated as an “uncertified appliance” which have special clearances and code requirements.)

– Each manufacturer of a wood burning appliance is required to complete extensive testing in an “independent test laboratory” such as Warnock Hersey (or another accredited Lab)

– The Test lab will have determined proper clearances to combustibles and other information for each particular model noted on its wood stove label attached to the appliance.

In Canada -a WETT Inspection for your wood burning stove will determine if the CSA test standard on the appliance wood stove label is a current one or a  Canada recognized one – usually wood stoves have to be certified to each particular country’s standards..

A WETT Inspection will also determine who the testing Agency is and whether the appliance is EPA Approved (Environmental Protection Agency)

Most jurisdictions do not allow a non EPA approved stove to be newly installed so be careful when you buy that “bargain online”.

Non EPA stoves do not reburn their smoke properly and are a nuisance in the neighborhood, however if they have been installed already and do meet current Installation codes they sometimes can be approved.

A WETT Inspection cannot and does not certify a particular piece of equipment

Wood stove companies pay thousands of dollars to test labs to get a certification for any given model.

A WETT inspector cannot produce a label for your homebuilt or otherwise older model stoves and units that are missing a wood stove label for any reason.

A WETT inspection will establish whether your system (certified or not) is installed with proper clearances and venting equipment to pass an insurance inspection.
