Can we use this Napoleon 1100C cast iron EPA wood burning stove with a spark screen?
By Chris C. on September 17, 2015
Answer:A spark screen may indeed be placed in front of the stove for initial firing and for reloading, but during normal operation, the stove is designed to be operated with the door fully closed and latched.

What size of a wood stove could heat 700 square feet? Could this Napoleon 1100C cast iron EPA wood burning stove handle this? Does it have an electric forced air blower? What are the requirements for clearances for this unit?
By eFireplaceStore on December 28, 2015
For a 700 square foot area that is well insulated and with ceilings no greater than 9 feet, a wood stove with an efficiency adjusted output of 25,000 BTUs would be sufficient. The Napoleon 1100 would work well for this scenario and could be kept to a medium burn setting. The unit does not offer a blower as standard, but it is an option. The blower is the Napoleon EP62-1 Variable Speed Blower
. Clearances for this model are as follows:
Sidewall Clearance - 12" with single wall stovepipe / 10" with double wall
Backwall Clearance - 10" with single wall stovepipe / 6" with double wall
Floor to Ceiling Requirement - 84"
Corner Clearance - 6" with single wall stovepipe / 2" with double wall

I currently have a factory built wood burning fireplace. I'm considering having it removed and having mason stone placed on the inside cavity walls. How far does a wood stove have to be from the walls and can I set it it partially inside the cavity?
By eFireplaceStore on January 23, 2015
Answer:While it depends on the stove in question, most stoves require between 6 to 12 inches from the side and back walls of an alcove. For example, the 1100C you are viewing now requires 6 inches of clearance from the back wall to the stove and 12 inches of clearance from the side wall to the stove, when using double wall stovepipe.

We have a very "tightly" insulated building, barn with apartment, with spray foam insulation on exterior walls and fiberglass batting on the apartment that is built inside barn with 2 x4 framing. Does Napoleon have some kind of fresh intake ?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 19, 2011
While Napoleon does offer fresh air kits for most of their stoves, the 1100C does not currently offer one. This is due to the smaller size of the combustion chamber that eliminates the need for combustion air in most circumstances.
In cases of very tightly insulated structures, it would be necessary to use an alternate model that can accept combustion air. The slightly larger 1400C can use combustion air.

I am interested in installing a wood burning stove for my new 2,000 square foot log home in East Texas. We do not have cold winters and I don't like a hot house. Would the 1100C cast iron stove okay to heat a home in our mild winters? The coldest it gets is occasionally 20-25 degrees Fahrenheit.
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on September 16, 2013
While this 1100C would be capable of offering plenty of supplemental heat, it would be unable to provide it for your entire home. We recommend the
Napoleon 1400C Cast Iron EPA Wood-Burning Stove
, which is a larger version of this stove, capable of heating up to 2,000 square feet.
By Jim Bush from Jasper ,Texas on May 12, 2012
Can I get this stove in black?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 14, 2012

What is the distance between stove top and wood mantle on this model in New Hampshire?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, this particular stove has not been tested for mantel clearance by Napoleon. The only overhead clearance listed is a minimum of 84 inches from the hearth pad to the ceiling. The closest version of this stove is the 1402 insert, which requires 28 inches of clearance from the insert to the mantel, but this measurement would not necessarily apply to the 1100C.
By Jadwiga Gromek from Pittsboro, NC on December 22, 2011
Hi. I would like to know what is the distance from stove to wall and how long has to be the pipe.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 22, 2011
Answer:This stove must be at least 10" out from the back wall, as illustrated in the owner's manual on page 9. The product manual is available to be downloaded on this product page.
Napoleon does not list a minimum requirement for the pipe, but you must terminate your class A chimney vertically and it must be at least 3 feet above your roof line. Please see page 15 of the owner's manual and following for more details.

What are the dimensions? What size is the log? Does it come with an alternate rear vent flue?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 22, 2013
Answer:Dimensions of the stove are 28 inches wide, 28 1/2 inches tall, and 22 1/2 inches deep. The stove can accept logs up to 12 inches in width. Currently, all Napoleon wood burning models have a top venting flue collar. While flue gases can be directed rearward, via an elbow, the flue collar is not adaptable for rear venting.

Can you burn hedge wood in this stove?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 12, 2014
Answer:My assumption is that you are referring to the Osage orange tree, commonly called a hedge wood or bodock tree. This type of wood can be burned in this stove, but care should be taken to limit the amount of fuel burned. The high BTU content of the wood has the ability to overfire the stove if too much fuel is used.
By Barbara from MA on August 21, 2013
Does this come with a screen or can we purchase a screen elsewhere?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 22, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, Napoleon does not offer a screen for the 1100C or 1400C models. Only the 1600C has a decorative screen accessory.
By Janice from MAssachusetts on November 27, 2011
HI I have a 1500 square foot house and I am interested in replacing my vigilant wood stove with a Napoleon stove but I cannot determine if an 1100 c or a 1600 would work best as it is a secondary source.
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 28, 2011
Answer:Napoleon's 1600 can effectively heat between 500 and 1500+ square feet. The 1100C has a slightly larger firebox and is suitable for spaces between 600 and 1600 square feet. The 1100C would be a fine choice for secondary heating at a more reasonable price.
By Jack from Silver Spring, Maryland on November 14, 2011
I am interested in buying a wood burning stove. I have a small room (12'x6') I would like to heat. I saw the NApoleon 1100C Cast Iron Wood burning stove. It is beautiful, but I do not think I need one that is this big. Would you sell a smaller stove?

By John Crankshaw from Belchertown, MA on December 31, 2011
Hi- We recently bought the Napoleon 1100C and its as beautiful as the picture. We are trying to install it but what are the specifications for the hearth pad on a solid oak floor under the Massachusetts code. Can I buy the insulating board separate from the decorative stone? What is the approximate price of a 4 X 4 sheet?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 2, 2012
Answer:It would be best to contact your local code enforcement office for exact specifications regarding what is exactly required in your installation.

What size sq footage does this stove heat? The 69 percent efficiency seems low, are there better options for the money?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 18, 2012
By Amy Curry from Douglas City, CA 96024 on May 3, 2012
What square footage do the 1100C and the 1600C heat?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 3, 2012
Answer:Per the manufacturer, the 1100C is designed to heat 600 to 1500 square feet, while the 1600C is good for 600-1200. Both of these measurements assume you will be using seasoned hardwood and will be regularly refueling the stove.
You will notice, the 1100C actually has a higher potential heating capacity, due to a thinner casting that allows greater heat transfer, but is not quite as durable as the 1600C in the long run. Both are excellent stoves that will last for many years with regular service.
