** ‐ Maximum burn times are heavily dependent on the type of wood burned in the stove; as such, these numbers may vary. *** ‐ The maximum heating capacity of this unit can vary greatly based on climate, construction style, insulation and a myriad of other factors. Use this information in conjunction with a BTU loss calculation for your home to determine if this unit will be sufficient for your needs. Page | 5
1. Traffic Patterns – To help prevent accidents, the stove should be placed in a location where it is out of the way of normal travel through the home.
2. Heat Flow – When deciding on a location for the stove, consider the way heat moves throughout your home. Install the stove where you need the heat; basement installations often do not allow sufficient heat to flow to the upper floors and a top floor installation will not allow any heat to reach the floors below. Always consider that heat rises and will take the path of least resistance while it is still hot.
3. Exhaust Location – The engine which drives a wood stove is the chimney system, so it is important to consider precisely how the chimney system will be integrated into the stove installation. Ideally, a wood stove chimney will run completely vertical from the flue collar of the unit all the way to the termination point above the roof line. Keeping the entire chimney system inside the heated envelope of the home will ensure a strong, easy to initiate draft in the chimney. Although exterior chimney systems often function properly, they are more likely to suffer from cold down drafts at start up or provide weak draft to the unit. Also, consider the cross‐sectional area of the chimney; although existing masonry chimneys can often be used, a large external masonry chimney will result in a unit that is difficult or impossible to operate properly. In that case, an insulated chimney liner will often be required to supply the necessary draft.
4. Wall Construction – Locating the stove so that the exhaust system can pass between studs will simplify the installation and eliminate the need to reframe any sections of the wall or ceiling to accommodate the wall thimble or ceiling box. WARNING
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Do Not Over‐fire – If any external part starts to glow, you are over‐firing. Reduce intake air supply. Over‐firing will void your warranty.
• Comply with all minimum clearances to combustibles as specified. Failure to comply may result in a house fire.
• Tested and approved for cordwood only. Burning any other fuel will void your warranty. Page | 6

INSTALLATIONAdditional Venting Information
• Do not mix and match components from different pipe manufacturers when assembling your venting system (i.e. Do NOT use venting pipe from one manufacturer and a thimble from another).
• We require a minimum chimney height of 15.0 ft. Chimney systems shorter than this may not create the amount of draft which is required to operate this wood burning unit.
• Do not use makeshift compromises when installing the venting system; have existing chimney systems inspected before use and be certain all new chimney systems are installed to the manufacturer’s specifications and with only UL listed components (ULC if Canada).
• Prefabricated venting systems used for this stove must be listed to ULC S629 (Canada) and UL 103HT (US).
• Never install a draft inducer or any other system which increases the natural draft of the chimney; similarly, do not install a barometric or stovepipe damper with this unit.
• Never use single wall or double chimney connector as a chimney system; never pass either type of chimney connector through a combustible wall without carefully following the manufacturer’s instructions and those listed in the following page on Wall Pass‐ Throughs. NEVER pass chimney connector through an attic, floor, closet or roof.
• Only use 24 gauge MSG black single wall chimney connector or UL Listed (ULC if Canada) double wall chimney connector.
Preparation Measure your hearth to ensure it is large enough to accept the unit.
Unit must have a 36” clearance from the top of the stove to a mantel in accordance with NFPA 211 For the USA: Hearth must extend at least 16 in. from the front of the fuel opening.
For Canada: Hearth must extend at least 18 in (450.0 mm) from the front of the fuel opening.
Keep in mind that this type of a installation will make it difficult to change speeds on the blower frequently. We recommend picking a blower speed and sticking with it, since adjusting the blower will be difficult because of the tight installation.
