What is the difference between a stove for a home and a stove for a mobile home?
By Tyler M. on March 2, 2015
Answer:Mobile Home-Approved stoves are units that have specifically been tested and listed for use in such an application; this requires the addition of an outside air kit and the unit must be secured to the chassis of the home. You can find the appropriate outside air kits in the "Accessories" tabs on each stove's item page.

I am purchasing a mobile home which already has a wood stove. It is being used in place. It sits away from the wall, approximately 2 feet and does not "sit" on any brick or other material. My concern is of fire. We did have an inspection of this mobile home. I was thinking some type of L shape non flammable "item" that would give protection from the back of stove, and also the stove would be on something solid.

What do I need to fully install a wood stove in a mobile home?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 7, 2014
Answer:When installing a wood stove into a mobile home, the following criteria must be met:
1. The stove must be specifically listed by the manufacturer for use in a mobile home.
2. Your local code enforcement agency must allow installation of a wood stove into mobile homes.
3. Outside combustion air must be provided to the stove. This must be by means of a sealed duct from the outside wall or crawlspace, directly to the back of the wood stove.
4. The stove must be anchored to the chassis of the mobile home. This is to prevent movement if the mobile home is relocated.
5. The stove must be electrically grounded to the chassis. This is to prevent damage, should lightning strike the metal chimney.

What does "mobile home approved" mean?
By Brennan W. on October 20, 2015
Answer:This means that the manufacturer of the stove has approved the unit to be installed in a mobile or manufactured home. Please bear in mind, however, that you will want to speak with your local code enforcement before any installation.

Hi, I need a mobile home approved wood stove for WA State - and one that will hold a banked fire overnight, for about 7 hours. Can you recommend a model?
By eFireplaceStore on July 3, 2014
One of our most popular models for this type of application is the US Stove Medium EPA-Certified Wood-Burning Stove
. This unit conforms to the strict 4.5 gram standards for non catalytic appliances used in Washington and is a simple, but rugged and solid performer. Max expected burn time is 8 hours when using seasoned medium to high density cord wood.
