    the highest burn rate air intake completely open The optimum efficiency that we publicize is the efficiency obtained according to the same test data but for the low burn rate only This efficiency is more realistic for a majority of users whose heating needs require that the unit be used to maximize burn times Why has the paint turned white and how do I re paint my heater As a result of the high temperatures reached on the surface of any wood heater most types of high temperature paint will tend to discolor over time However if your paint has completely turned white in some areas shortly after you purchased your heater it is a sign that it may have overheated Many things can cause a unit to overheat Here is a brief list The air intake control has been left fully open and flue temperatures have reached excessive levels for a long period of time The chimney draft is excessive The door was left ajar for a long period with a fire going The door gasket is worn out Firebricks have been damaged or disintegrated and have not been replaced Pressure treated wood or other bi products of wood were used as fuel An excessive quantity of manufactured logs were used in the heater It is important to identify why the heater has overheated Otherwise it may wear out prematurely Make sure you use a chimney thermometer and keep flue temperatures within the comfort zone of 250 o F to 475 o F when the heater is operated in the slow combustion mode It is okay to reach temperatures between 500 o F and 900 o F upon start up of the heater The paint is tested to resist peak temperatures non continuous of up to 1 200 o F You can paint your heater and make it look brand new If the paint has not peeled off you need to prepare the surface with a 180 grit sand paper Then repaint the heater with the original high temperature aerosol paint for a more resistant and uniform finish If the paint has peeled off you need to prepare the surface with a 180 grit sand paper and remove all the paint until you reach the steel Why does the glass get sooty Possible causes and solutions 1 The moisture content of your wood is too high Solution Make sure you use good seasoned cord wood The wood you burn plays an important role in the overall performance of your heater Your wood should have been properly dried for approximately one year Storage is also key Wood that has been cut for one two or even more years will not necessarily be dry if it has been stored in poor conditions Under extreme conditions it may have rotten instead of drying Smaller pieces of wood will dry faster The wood should be stored in a place where the grass is not too long and where the wind will be able to circulate between the logs A 12 inch gap should be kept between the cords The wood should be placed in the sunniest area and should be protected from the rain and snow on top but not on the sides Use a moisture reader to measure the moisture content of your wood Ideally it should be below 25 2 The logs are positioned too close to the glass and are obstructing the air flow that is necessary to keep the glass clean Solution Make sure to keep a minimum gap of 2 inches between the logs and the glass 3 The chimney draft is too weak Solution 1 In many cases a weak draft is simply due to insufficient heat in the exhaust system Build a small intense fire and leave the door ajar never leave the heater unattended Before inserting larger logs use dry kindling to obtain a good bed of red embers Gradually increase the size of the logs Close the unit s door when you reach a flue temperature of approximately 475 F on the chimney thermometer Leave the air intake fully open for approximately 15 minutes Then gradually close the air intake control Note that there is no danger in letting the temperature inside the flue reach approximately 700 F during start up This is even favorable in order to properly start your heater You must however avoid maintaining excessive temperatures above the comfort zone on your thermometer during a long period of time Your chimney thermometer should be positioned on the exhaust pipe approximately 18 inches above the unit Solution 2 Your heater may not have all the oxygen it needs to allow for a sufficient draft You first need to insure that the room where the heater is located is sufficiently large and well ventilated Open the nearest window by approximately 2 inches If you notice a significant improvement it is a sign that the unit needs more oxygen The room may be too insulated or too small Without an additional source of oxygen the draft will remain weak and cause the glass stay dirty Solution 3 The chimney may be too short In order to obtain a sufficient draft your chimney must have a minimum height Twelve feet from the heater to the chimney cap outside the house is a minimum A height of 15 feet or higher is ideal Solution 4 Your exhaust system may be too tortuous or may lack a sufficiently steep slope Ideally your exhaust system should not have more than one 90 elbow Furthermore all horizontal sections should be as short as possible and have a minimum slope of per foot Solution 5 Your exhaust system may be oversized When your chimney is oversized the volume of air that needs to be warmed up is larger It is therefore difficult to reach temperatures that will allow for a sufficient draft Most advanced combustion systems those certified to EPA CSAB415 1 10 have a 6 flue outlet 152mm If your exhaust system does not have a 6 diameter a solution is to insert a stainless liner with a 6 diameter inside the exhaust system Can I vent my heater using an existing masonry chimney It is possible to install a heater using your existing masonry chimney The chimney must comply with the building code of your country state or province It usually needs to be lined with refractory bricks metal or clay tiles sealed together with fire cement The diameter of the chimney must be the same as the appliance s flue outlet If your masonry chimney does not have the same diameter as the appliance s flue outlet you need to insert a stainless steel liner having the proper diameter Otherwise you may face draft problems There are two types of liners rigid and flexible liner Both types are made of stainless steel They must be certified for venting solid fuel burning appliances Flexible liner is particularly useful when the masonry chimney has one or more deviations Can I cook on the top of my wood stove It is definitely possible to cook on the top of your stove This can be very useful in case of power failure A stove fully loaded with wood will easily reach 500 to 700 o F on top This is sufficient to cook The use of a pan or other cookware may scratch the paint An option is to use a cast iron cooking grid or simply lay a piece of stainless steel on top of the stove Can I remove the legs or pedestal of my stove and convert it into a fireplace insert Unfortunately there is a major design difference between a freestanding wood stove and a wood insert The wood insert like all other inserts has an extra steel jacket that covers about 2 3 of its firebox on the sides and all of its back This serves to accumulate the heat radiated by the firebox The heat is then pushed in front of the unit and into the room by a blower Without this feature the heat radiated by the insert would be lost into the masonry cavity Hence a stove inserted into a masonry fireplace would not have the same efficiency Furthermore its clearances to combustible materials could vary If the stove has not been tested for this type of installation it cannot be inserted into a masonry opening Can I install a wood heater in a mobile home Yes you can install a wood heater stove or fireplace in a mobile home However the heater you install must have been specifically approved for a mobile home application The heater must be hooked up to a fresh air pipe that enables combustion air to come from outside the house For most models it is necessary to purchase an adapter that allows the connection of the fresh air pipe to the appliance Consult our product literature to know if a particular model is mobile home approved The fresh air pipe used should be rated for temperatures of 250 o F 122 o C or more and should be insulated to prevent or limit condensation Normally this type of pipe meets the UL 181 ULC S110 standard for Class 1 HVAC connectors Does my heater qualify under the LEED program The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design LEED Green Building Rating System encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria LEED is a third party certification program and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design construction and operation of high performance green buildings It provides building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings performance The Canadian Green Building Council CGBC certifies LEED projects The Certification is based on the total point score achieved following an independent review and an audit of selected Credits With four possible levels of certification certified silver gold and platinum LEED is flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of green building strategies that best fit the constraints and goals of particular projects The Canadian rating systems are an adaptation of the US Green Building Council s USGBC LEED Green Building Rating System tailored specifically for Canadian climates construction practices and regulations The rating systems are adapted to the Canadian market through an inclusive process that engages stakeholders and experts representing the various sectors of the Canadian industry Wood or pellet stoves fireplaces and inserts can qualify under LEED and obtain up to one point provided that they meet the following criteria Why doesn t my heater produce enough heat Possible causes and solutions 1 The moisture content of your wood is too high Solution Make sure you use good seasoned wood The wood you burn plays an important role in the overall performance of your heater Your wood should have been properly dried for about one year Furthermore it is better to use hardwood such as oak maple beech or ash For the same volume hardwood will produce more heat Storage is also very important Wood that has been cut for one two or even more years will not necessarily be dry if it has been stored in poor conditions Under extreme conditions it may have rotted instead of drying Smaller pieces of wood will dry faster The wood should be stored in a place where the grass is not too long and where the wind will be able to circulate between the logs A 12 inch gap should be kept between the cords The wood should be placed in the sunniest area and should be protected from the rain and snow on top but not on the sides Use a moisture reader to measure the moisture content of your wood Ideally it should be below 25 2 The air control mechanism is not open enough Solution Adjust the air control mechanism in order to keep the flue temperature within the comfort zone between 250 F and 475 F on your chimney thermometer The air control mechanism must always be closed gradually You need to obtain a good bed of red embers and the logs must be completely lit up before you close the air control completely This can easily take up to one hour 3 The logs that you are using are too big Solution Use smaller pieces of wood and place them to allow proper air circulation between the logs The same weight of wood cut in many small pieces will produce more heat than fewer larger logs Only add big logs when you have a good bed of red embers Logs with a diameter exceeding 6 inches should always be split Avoid stacking logs to the top of the firebox 4 The chimney draft is too weak Solution 1 In many cases a weak draft is simply due to insufficient heat in the exhaust system Build a small intense fire and leave the door ajar never leave the heater unattended Before inserting larger logs use dry kindling to obtain a good bed of red embers Gradually increase the size of the logs Close the unit s door when you reach a flue temperature of approximately 475 F on the chimney thermometer Leave the air intake fully open for approximately 15 minutes Then gradually close the air intake control Note that there is no danger in letting the temperature inside the flue reach approximately 700 F during start up This is even favorable in order to properly start your heater You must however avoid maintaining excessive temperatures above the comfort zone on your thermometer during a long period of time Your chimney thermometer should be positioned on the exhaust pipe approximately 18 inches above the unit Solution 2 Your heater may not have all the oxygen it needs to

notice a significant improvement it is a sign that the unit needs more oxygen The room may be too insulated or too small Without an additional source of oxygen the draft will remain weak and cause the glass stay dirty Solution 3 The chimney may be too short In order to obtain a sufficient draft your chimney must have a minimum height Twelve feet from the heater to the chimney cap outside the house is a minimum A height of 15 feet or higher is ideal Solution 4 Your exhaust system may be too restrictive or may lack a sufficient rise Ideally your exhaust system should not have more than one 90 elbow Furthermore all horizontal sections should be as short as possible and have a minimum slope of per foot Solution 5 Your exhaust system may be oversized When your chimney is oversized the volume of air that needs to be warmed up is larger It is therefore difficult to reach temperatures that will allow for a sufficient draft Most advanced combustion systems those certified to EPA CSAB415 1 10 have a 6 flue outlet 152mm If your exhaust system does not have a 6 diameter a solution is to insert a stainless liner with a 6 diameter inside the exhaust system If you have verified all the points mentioned above and your heater works fine but still does not produce enough heat you may be asking for more than what your appliance can realistically give you Stoves fireplaces and inserts are used for zone heating It is normal that the heat be distributed unevenly inside your home It will always be colder in the rooms that are distant from the heater Furthermore since heat rises a heater located at the ground floor level will not heat your basement Solution 6 It is possible to increase heat circulation between the floors by installing floor traps The location of your heater is also important Try to install it in a central location If you want to heat both your basement and the ground floor install your heater in the basement The heat will rise to the upper floors Verify that the area you try to heat respects your appliance s heating capacity Your appliance s heating capacity can be found on the printed literature in the owner s manual or in the technical data section on our web site Keep in mind that your appliance s heating capacity assumes optimum conditions It may be too low in situations where a house is poorly insulated or highly exposed to wind If you already have an appliance with a high heating capacity that works normally but does not heat enough you probably need a central heating system such as a warm air wood furnace Why does the fire go out when I close the loading door Possible causes and solutions 1 The moisture content of your wood is too high Solution Make sure you use good seasoned cord wood The wood you burn plays an important role in the overall performance of your heater Your wood should have been properly dried for approximately one year Storage is also key Wood that has been cut for one two or even more years will not necessarily be dry if it has been stored in poor conditions Under extreme conditions it may have rotten instead of drying Smaller pieces of wood will dry faster The wood should be stored in a place where the grass is not too long and where the wind will be able to circulate between the logs A 12 inch gap should be kept between the cords The wood should be placed in the sunniest area and should be protected from the rain and snow on top but not on the sides Use a moisture reader to measure the moisture content of your wood Ideally it should be below 25 2
