Servicing a wood stove
Installing a Used Wood Stove
- Although it is possible to install a used wood stove, the stove must be EPA Certified (Environmental Protection Agency) in order to be installed
- The EPA certification label is on the stove’s Information Label – be sure to check before you buy that bargain online. An old ULC or CSA sticker on the stove means nothing when it is associated with a new installation.
- Similarly, a UL or Warnock Hersey sticker also means nothing unless the label also states ULC S 627 and EPA approved to be legally installed in British Columbia.
This is important because we get calls daily from people who have purchased a used non code compliant stove somewhere which is not able to fit the re-install criteria.
We find this safety railing a good thing if you have small children. Note it is not to be used to keep the pile of flammable newspapers in like this one apparently was 🙂 However, if you are looking for fuel for your wood stove you might want to check out somewhere that sells bulk pellets as they can be a more reliable source of fuel than newspapers.
