TIPS ON WOOD HEATING

Wood is a renewable energy. It is also a very clean heat source when used with appliances that are certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a standard accepted in Canada as well.

EPA-certified wood stoves are different than conventional wood stoves. Burning with an EPA-certified wood stove may therefore require that you modify some of your heating habits. To get the most satisfaction out of your new wood-heating system, please make sure you go through the following check list.

The chimney is the engine that drives the wood-heating system. Use a chimney that is UL-listed, with an inner diameter to match the stove’s outlet collar (6” for all Drolet wood stoves);

Try to run the chimney inside the building for as much length as you can. A tall and warm chimney will produce a good draft;

Try to install your chimney straight up and avoid 90 degree turns in the flue pipe and offsets in the chimney;

Make sure that the chimney is tall enough and its top is clear of obstacles so it can produce a stable draft;

Use a chimney thermometer installed at a distance of approximately 18 inches on the flue pipe above the stove. Flue gases should reach at least 350oF before you close the stove’s primary air intake completely. Operate your unit within the comfort zone indicated on the thermometer;

To reduce the risk of smoke spillage into the room upon reloading your stove, leave the primary air intake completely open for a few minutes. This will heat up the chimney and build up draft before you open the stove door;

Maximize hot air circulation! Our wood stoves are designed to easily receive a variable speed blower that will improve heat distribution in front of the stove; Remember that wood stoves produce radiant heat. Since heat rises, the use of floor traps will greatly improve the heat transfer to rooms upstairs;

Use a mobile home approved stove if you are going to install your wood-heating system in a mobile home. A fresh air kit must be connected to the stove. Never install your wood stove in a bedroom;

Burn only dry cordwood;

Make sure you have a good bed of red coals before you load your stove with logs exceeding 3 inches in diameter;

Read and keep you owner’s manual. It will provide you with tips on how to run a successful wood-heating system.

2. Slide the ash pan in position.

Side Panels and Ash Lip Installation:

DOOR ADJUSTMENT

In order for your stove to operate properly, the door should be adjusted periodically to provide an air tight fit. To adjust:

Remove the lock pin (spring pin) by pulling and turning it using pliers ("wise grip")

Turn the handle counter clock wise one turn to increase pressure

Re-install the lock pin (spring pin) with a small hammer

INSTALLATION

SAFETY NOTICE

• IF THIS STOVE IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED, A HOUSE FIRE MAY RESULT. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, FOLLOW THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. FAILURE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, BODILY INJURY, OR EVEN DEATH.

• CONSULT YOUR MUNICIPAL BUILDING DEPARTMENT OR FIRE OFFICIALS ABOUT RESTRICTIONS AND INSTALLATIONS REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR AREA.

USE SMOKE DETECTORS IN THE ROOM WHERE YOUR STOVE IS INSTALLED.

KEEP FURNITURE AND DRAPES WELL AWAY FROM THE STOVE.

NEVER USE GASOLINE, GASOLINE-TYPE LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE, CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID,

OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO START OR "FRESHEN UP" A FIRE. KEEP ALL SUCH LIQUIDS WELL AWAY FROM THE STOVE.

• IN THE EVENT OF A CHIMNEY FIRE, PUSH THE AIR CONTROL FULL CLOSED TO DEPRIVE THE FIRE OF OXYGEN. CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

DO NOT CONNECT TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION DUCT OR SYSTEM.

A SOURCE OF FRESH AIR INTO THE ROOM OR SPACE HEATED SHALL BE PROVIDED WHEN

REQUIRED.

POSITIONING THE STOVE

It is very important to position the wood stove as close as possible to the chimney, and in an area that will favour the most efficient heat distribution possible throughout the house.

The stove must therefore be installed in the room where the most time is spent, and in the most spacious room possible. Recall that wood stoves produce radiating heat, the heat we feel when we are close to a wood stove. A wood stove also functions by convection, that is through the displacement of hot air accelerated upwards and its replacement with cooler air. If necessary, the hot air distribution from the stove may be facilitated by the installation of a blower.

The wood stove must not be hooked up to a hot air distribution system since an excessive accumulation of heat may occur.

A wood stove must never be installed in a hallway or near a staircase, since it may block the way in case of fire or fall to respect required clearances.
