We have covered this topic quite a bit and regularly discuss the function and efficiency of older non-EPA wood stoves vs. newer EPA certified models. A lot customers purchase parts for their old stoves from us and are surprised at high costs or disappointed to find parts are no longer made. Although your old wood stove is in tact, burning wood and heating your home, the stove lacks efficiency and is costing you much more in fuel than a new stove would; while also contributing to air pollution.
Since 1988 the EPA has required newly built stoves to meet emissions guidelines of 4.1 grams/hour of particle matter for a catalytic stove or 7.5 grams/hour for a non-catalytic stove. If your stove was made prior to 1988, these standards provided by the Clean Air Act are not being met. If you are not worried about the environmental effects of extra smoke or what some may perceive as government bureaucracy, how about your own pocketbook? The costs of fuel needed to keep your home heated with a non-certified stove will add up tremendously in just one season!

A lot of folks are taking this issue seriously at the community, personal and government levels. Check out the Wood Stove Decathlon, scheduled for November 15th, that is taking place at the National Mall in Washington DC! We were excited to find this article and learn that 14 teams are competing for the most innovative stove design!
from Popular Mechanics, Alliance for Green Heat & Wood Stove Design Challenge
The upcoming event will include international competitors and is driven mainly by the need for less particulates in the atmosphere and a desire to reduce levels of smoke. Alliance for Green Heat and Popular Mechanics have come together and offered “The People’s Choice Awards for the Wood Stove Design Challenge”. The finalists are listed by Popular Mechanics, you can cast your vote HERE. As long as your old stove lasts and parts are still available, we can help with door gaskets, replacement glass, sometimes even the doors themselves! But as the issue comes to the forefront of our industry, we should all take some time to calculate the cost of keeping these units running vs. starting fresh with a newly designed, more efficient and innovative stove to heat our homes.
When choosing your new Wood, Gas or Pellet stove and you will want to know the comparative costs of heating.
Click here to go to this interactive chart and find out how the cost of heating with different fuels compares in your home.
Here is a comparison of fuel costs at our home town, Nevada City, based on price quotes in May, 2013.
After spending a weekend at The Union’s 28th Annual Home and Garden Show, it became apparent that many who own gas stoves are skipping their annual service call. We in fact ran into some customers from the past who purchased their gas stove years ago and admitted to never having scheduled maintenance. Skipping this crucial maintenance step can keep you from having heat when you need it most. Stoves and inserts using natural gas or propane should be checked annually by a licensed stove technician for proper function. Any time your burner does not respond to the thermostat is an early warning that soon the burner will fail completely. During your service call a trained technician will confirm that the pilot assembly is creating enough electricity to keep both the pilot lit and the thermostat working. A technician will also see that logs and ember beds are properly positioned for a proper clean burn. Your stove is checked for carbon build-up and chemical deposits as well which are inevitable over time and can result in a snowballing effect of soot build up. Wood Heat Stoves & Solar serves Nevada City and the immediate surrounding area. Our trained technician can annually check your gas stove or insert as described in the owner/installation manual*. A typical annual gas service call will cost around $100 an hour, one hour should be sufficient for a “tune up” as long as no repairs or parts are required.
*Warning! Gas stoves are very dangerous appliances and faulty repairs can easily lead to explosions causing damages and death. Hire local licensed contractors specializing in gas appliance repairs from your local stove dealer’s staff, or a heating and air conditioning service company for efficient and safe repairs. Wood Heat Stoves & Solar, www.WoodHeatStoves.com and staff members provide these tips for informative purposes and cannot be liable for damages or injuries resulting from the use of information provided in this article. Hire a trained and licensed stove technician to ensure your own safety and the life of your gas, wood or pellet stove.

Soapstone is a natural material that holds heat far longer than steel or cast iron that most woodstoves are built from. Due to this built in natural heat storage Hearthstone Soapstone woodstoves will hold the heat from their fire for hours after the fire has died down. These high efficiency woodstoves also deliver their heat to the home more “gently” instead of blasting radiant heat out quickly causing a room to overheat, like their cast iron and plate steel counterparts. View the diagram in the photo below, from the Hearthstone Stove brochure that shows how soapstone stoves compare to the others in delivering their heating.

Here is some more information about the magical heating qualities of Hearthstone Soapstone Wood stoves.
Mobile Homes and Modular Homes are issued BUILDING PERMITS by HUD
(U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development) which is a federal agency instead of local city or county building departments.
Woodstoves, pellet stoves and gas stoves require different standards in Mobile and Modular homes. These often include a ground wire, outside air and double wall interior and possibly other specific details. Consult your stove owners manual for specific details on your installation.
