Wood Fireplaces

What are the installation clearances for a woodstove?

Each stove’s installation requirements are different. Every manufacturer tests and lists each model. Clearances to combustible walls and hearth (underlayment) dimensions are critical safety considerations. Local building officials will rely on these specifications when inspecting an installation. Every stove’s requirements are included in the owner’s manual and in less detail on the identification plate on the back of each stove.
