Q. Is my stove “CSA”, “UL”, or “ULC” approved?

A. All Osburn stoves are certified as per the latest CSA standards. Most of our stoves are tested by Warnock Hersey, an independent testing agency which role is to certify that our units comply with the security standards set by the CSA (Canadian Standard Association). This is why the certification plate at the back of our stoves reads “Warnock Hersey”. ULC (Underwriters Laboratories of Canada) is another independent testing agency.

Q. How do EPA certified stoves differ from non-EPA certified stoves?

A. In the case of EPA certified stoves, there are generally two air intakes on the stove: primary and secondary. The exhaust gases are mixed with secondary air, causing them to re-ignite and burn before going up the chimney. The result is a reduction in particulate emissions, as well as an increased burn time. Non-EPA wood stoves usually have only one air intake.

Q. What is a non-catalytic stove?

A. Non-catalytic stoves do not use a catalyst but have three internal characteristics that create a good environment for complete combustion. These are firebox insulation, a large baffle to produce a longer, hotter gas flow path, and pre-heated combustion air introduced through small holes above the fuel in the firebox.

Q. What type of exhaust system do I need?

A. Your exhaust system is comprised of two main elements: a chimney and stove pipe. There are two types of chimneys: a Class A metal chimney or a masonry chimney. Class A chimneys are rated to withstand temperatures up to 2100F and are easy to install. The connector is made of steel and needs a minimum thickness of 24ga. You can also use double wall stove pipe that will enable you, in most cases, to reduce clearances to combustible material. The stove pipe cannot go through ceilings, closets, floors, or any other combustible partition. It is the chimney that goes through combustible partitions and that goes out to the exterior of the house, according to the chimney manufacturer’s specifications.

Q. Can I use artificial logs in my stove?

A. You need to carefully read the instructions on the packaging. Those instructions should clearly mention whether the logs are approved for use in a freestanding wood stove. If there is no restriction mentioned on the packaging, try to contact the log manufacturer. Some types of artificial logs are forbidden for use in wood stoves. Other logs may appear like artificial logs, but they are completely natural (100% wood, without any additive). Those logs can generally be used in a freestanding wood stove, unless otherwise specified. However, keep in mind that 100% natural manufactured logs can heat a lot more than regular logs. Never insert a large quantity in your stove. You risk overheating the stove.

Q. Do I need floor protection under and around the stove?

A. Yes. A floor protection is required for any wood stove unless it already sits on a non-combustible surface. You have many choices, such as stone, brick or tile. You need to consult your owner’s manual to know the dimensions of the floor protection specific to your model.

Q. Are Osburn wood stoves environmentally friendly?

A. Yes, Osburn wood stoves are designed to minimize harmful emissions and to burn wood as cleanly and efficiently as possible. This makes them a more eco-friendly heating option compared to traditional wood-burning stoves.

Q. How efficient are Osburn wood stoves?

A. Osburn wood stoves are highly efficient, with most models boasting efficiency ratings of 75% or higher. This means that they can convert a high percentage of the energy in the wood they burn into usable heat for your home.

Q. Do I need to have my wood stove professionally installed?

A. Yes, it is recommended to have a professional install your wood stove to ensure proper ventilation and safety. Improper installation can create fire hazards and increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Q. How long can I expect my wood stove to last?

A. The lifespan of a wood stove can vary depending on the quality of the stove and how well it is maintained. However, with proper care and maintenance, a wood stove can last 20 years or more.
