I recently bought this Napoleon Timberwolf 2200 Economizer EPA wood burning stove and it is really great to operate and puts out a lot of heat. The stove pipe is running at 375 degrees and the stove top itself at 700 degrees. Can I run at this temperature consistently with out doing any damage? It really is a nice, clean burn when the temperature outside is freezing.
By Will M. on June 8, 2015
The manufacturer recommends the stovepipe temperatures be monitored with a Thermometer
attached to the stovepipe. For single wall pipe, the range should be between 250-450 degrees Fahrenheit. For double wall pipe, this range should be between 125-300 degrees. The surface temperature of 700 degrees is too high and should be no more than 650 degrees Fahrenheit. Please note that damage due to over-firing the stove will void the warranty.

Can a 6 Inch exhaust go into a 8 Inch Selkirk chimney?
By eFireplaceStore on October 6, 2014
Answer:This is only advisable if the 8 inch chimney run is fairly short. Modern EPA appliances that use a 6 inch flue collar are very sensitive to oversizing. Their flue gas temperatures are much lower than previous stoves and the larger chimney pipe will allow more cooling of the gases. If the chimney run is long enough, the gases can cool to the point that they loose their buoyancy, preventing the stove from drafting.
If the 8 inch chimney is 10 feet or shorter and is not fully exposed to outdoor air, it is possible to get by. You will need to use 6 inch stovepipe to your wall or ceiling support, then adapt from 6 to 8 at the support. It is important to keep the stovepipe sized to 6 inch for as long as possible.

Do I need to buy a hearth plate for this stove?
By eFireplaceStore on January 12, 2015
Answer:If the unit is placed directly upon a combustible floor, you will indeed require a noncombustible hearth pad to protect the surrounding area from hot embers that could fall from the stove when reloading.

Is there any advantage to having your stove on a pedestal vs legs? Higher up?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on April 11, 2012
Answer:Indeed, a leg model is just a couple of inches taller then its pedestal counterpart. However, there is no real benefit to having one version over the other. This decision boils down to personal preference.

How can I figure out what venting I need to put this unit in a one story home that's never had a fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 22, 2013
Answer:Manufacturers of venting pipe do offer a few basic kits with components that will always be needed when venting through a wall or roof. However, the lengths of venting pipe must be figured by the homeowner or contractor.
If you have an idea of where you want the stove to be located, I will be happy to work up a quote for the necessary venting components. I will need to know the distance from the back of the stove to the wall, ceiling height of the room, thickness of the wall, and outside height of the house from the ground to the roof eave.

Is this firebrick lined? What is the rear wall clearance? What is the width of the pedestal? What size is the flue outlet?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 14, 2013
Answer:This model does indeed have a firebrick liner for increased efficiency and durability. The unit requires 17.5 inches of clearance to a combustible wall when using single wall stovepipe and 12.5 when using double. The body of the stove is 26 inches wide with both the legs and pedestal. The pedestal is smaller, at 18 inches. This unit has a 6 inch flue collar, which is standard for an EPA stove. A 6 inch chimney system should be used for best performance.

Would cement board with tile be sufficient as a hearth for this Napoleon Timberwolf stove?
By Brennan W. on March 30, 2015
Answer:This should be fine, so long as the non combustible floor protector extends 18" in the front and 8" at the sides and back.
By Robert from Asheville, NC on November 24, 2014
What's the difference between an EPA stove and one that's not? Is this stove firebrick lined?
By eFireplaceStore on November 25, 2014
Answer:EPA stoves will utilize some version of a recirculation device that makes them very efficient and lowers their emissions, while allowing them to offer increased burn times. In this case of this model, a pair of baffles is used to close down most of the firebox, allowing for a hot and intense fire. A secondary air injection system continues to fuel the fire and ensures that the fuel source is not wasted. Non-EPA stoves rely on the heat of the burning wood to warm the chassis, but do nothing to prevent a good deal of potential energy from escaping up the chimney flue.

This is Napoleon Timberwolf 2200 Economizer EPA wood burning stove is great but it no longer keeps the glass door clean and I can't find an answer from any source. Can you help me?
By Will M. on January 22, 2016
Answer:So long as you have not changed the wood you are burning as this will be the number one cause for the glass sooting, your door may require adjusting or you may need to replace the door gasket. Using a dollar bill, close the door on the dollar bill at locations around the perimeter of the door. The bill should remain firmly in place at all points. If it does, please make sure you are only burning properly seasoned hardwood and not green wood, wet wood or or pine as this is the most common reason for the issue you are having.

What does it mean by double wall connector and single wall connector? I need to know for clearances for the install.
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on October 21, 2013
Answer:These terms refer to the kind of stovepipe that you would be installing on the stove. Single-wall connector is single-wall stovepipe such as our DuraBlack, Heat-Fab or Snap Lock pipe, whereas double-wall connector is double-wall stovepipe such as our DuraVent DVL or Selkirk DSP brands.

Does the 2200 have the option for using outside combustion air?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 23, 2012
Answer:It does not appear that Timberwolf lists an outside air kit for either the 2100 or 2200 stoves. However, please allow me to verify this with the manufacturer. I will be in touch with you shortly.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 24, 2012
Answer:After checking with the manufacturer, it has been confirmed that the 2100 and 2200 Timberwolf stoves do not have provisions for an outside air kit. The stove will draw only room air and cannot be converted in any way.

How hot to the touch does this stove get? I have a little child.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 20, 2014
Answer:This stove will have surface temperatures that can exceed 500 degrees. Even soapstone stoves, which are some of the coolest surface models available, will have surface temperatures of over 300 degrees. It would be a good idea to install a safety fence around the stove to prevent children from approaching it.

If we install the EPA 2200 in an alcove that has non-combustible surfaces on all sides and overhead, what are the clearances needed to use double wall pipe?
By Chris C. on December 22, 2014
Answer:If there is no combustible material behind the non-combustible surface, there would be no clearance requirements at that point. However, you may want to leave some space for air flow around the unit.
By Michael from New Jersey on January 20, 2014
What are the EPA emissions of this stove?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 20, 2014

By Scott from Clarks Hill, IN on August 5, 2014
What is the actual thickness of steel used to construct the walls and top? (10ga/.188/.25 etc.) I have the 2200 model and it seems the bricks withhold a lot of heat that would radiant better without them.
By Chris C. on August 6, 2014
Answer:The 2100/2200 Timberwolf wood stoves have a 6mm thick firebox top and 4.75mm thick firebox sides.
By Tanner from TX on October 10, 2015
The manual of this Napoleon Timberwolf 2200 Economizer EPA wood burning stove says that clearances can be reduced with proper shielding but it does not say by how much. Where can I find this information? If I have a non-combustible material on 1 inch spacers on the backwall, how much can I reduce the clearance by?
By eFireplaceStore on October 12, 2015
Answer:Industry standard allows you to reduce clearances by 33%, when using a noncombustible material directly on a combustible wall. You can reduce by 66% when using a noncombustible material spaced at least 3/4 of an inch from the combustible wall behind it. This being said, the minimum clearance for a wood stove in all applications is 12 inches, unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer. Because this unit already features fairly close clearances to the wall, you could only reduce to 12 inches from the sides and back of the stove to the wall. The manufacturer does allow for closer corner clearances of 11 inches when using single wall stovepipe and 7 inches when using double wall stovepipe. Those clearances cannot be reduced any further.
By Harry from Farmington, ME on January 27, 2015
Is there an option for a right or left opening door?

I am looking to put this or the 2300 in my basement to heat the first floor. The house is 1862 square feet. Who would service the stove if there were issues with it? The stove I need just needs to be efficient, not pretty since it will be going in the basement.
Do you also have the up and out kit that is needed for this stove?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 31, 2012
Either this 2200 or the Timberwolf 2300 wood stove
