    I don't normally point out typos, but that one is pretty funny.

    All this is, in part why most fuel burning appliances including wood stoves, water heaters, furnaces etc, are now sealed combustion. They draw their own combustion air from outside, and don't miss it with conditioned air. A side note problem with wood stoves. Is, if you are drawing air from out side at sy -30 you are also cooling down your exhaust stack temp by a similar amount. The issu can increase creosote production if one doesn't burn properly.

    Ps,, I like the typo,, the auto correct on the iPad comes up with some interesting stuff that is very easy to mix.

    Good to know about the Aga's. Maybe one day British Columbia will be included as part of Canada like Ontario & Quebec. :p (Canadian joke; I don't expect anyone else to understand it.)


    Coot , Just drop into the WEST Van 'Y Franks' store and peruse all the different Aga stoves....BTW keep a strong hand on your wallet...

    too bad they don't carry the wood/oil/coal models

    Oh ya and then there is the added cost of beefing up the floor etc.. they weigh a ton! well maybe a bit less than a ton @ ~ 1300 #

    Oh no!
    If my wife ever finds out about that place she'll expect me to "nip down there and pick one up." :cry:

    I had to almost drag mine out kickin' and screamin'... well sort of...
    there was a lot of wailing though, when she 'discovered' they had them... and we couldn't just take one home.

    We also saw some other brands in England a few years back. A fair bit cheaper too. Don't remember the names though.

    To the thread originator. You were either advised incorrectly or misunderstood what VT's Energy Code Assistance Center said. The Vermont Residential Building Energy Code Handbook, Third Edition Effective October 1, 2011, Section 2.2a Oil and Gas Appliances (page 13) states, "Unvented fuel-fired heaters, including room heaters and unvented fireplaces are prohibited." VT code applies to heating appliances not cooking appliances. Not required by code but appropriate for the protection of good indoor air quality would be the use of a good kitchen exhaust fan when either natural gas or propane cooking appliances are used. The Handbook can be seen at: http://publicservice.vermont.gov/energy/ee_files/rbes/VT%20Energy%20Code%20Handbook_8%2025%2011.pdf

    Jeff, welcome to the forum.

    Yes, I was advised incorrectly by the Energy Code Assistance Center. Ultimately I did get straightened out (see post #22). --vtMaps
