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.

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?

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.
