Is this a cast iron unit? If not, what would you recommend?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 13, 2013
The vast majority of modern stoves, as is this model, are manufactured of plate steel. Plate steel stoves are reasonably durable, offer excellent thermal efficiency, and offer a clean, simple appearance.
We do offer some cast iron stoves, such as the Napoleon 1100C Cast Iron EPA Wood Burning Stove
, which offer the extended heating capabilities associated with this material. Napoleon is among the finest manufacturer of cast iron stoves on the market today and offers years of worry free service. This unit is sufficient to heat approximately 1,600 square feet of space. We do offer larger models as well, if more footage must be heated.

How far from back wall do I need for installation?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 28, 2013
Answer:This El Dorado stove calls for 15" of clearance from the back of the stove to the wall if you use single-wall stovepipe, but this can be reduced to 6" if you use double-wall stovepipe.

Is this stove approved for use in California?
By eFireplaceStore on October 10, 2014

Is this stove approved for use in a mobile home? If so, our home is approximately 1500 square feet. Would this stove be the right size?
By eFireplaceStore on October 10, 2014
This stove is indeed mobile home approved. The stove could heat the entire home if kept on a high burn setting, but this will limit time between reloading to 2 to 3 hours. You may consider a larger model, such as the Drolet Legend Large Wood Stove With Blower Included - DB03070
, as this model will allow longer burn times and will not have to be burned as hot to keep the home warm.

What is the necessary rear clearance that I will need if I have a brick chimney behind the stove which it would vent into?
By eFireplaceStore on December 15, 2014
Answer:If the material behind the stove is truly noncombustible brick veneer, with no wooden framing behind the veneer, the stove can be positioned within 2 inches from the wall. The stove normally requires a 12 inch clearance to combustible walls.

Does this stove have to be professionally installed for a mobile home so that my insurance company will be happy?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 4, 2013
Answer:We always recommend professional installation of our wood stoves and fireplaces. It is indeed likely that your insurance company will require professional installation and inspection; we encourage you to check with your insurance company for specifics.

Our present chimney is 7 inches in diameter. Can this stove still be used with that pipe diameter size?
By Kevin E. on November 24, 2014
Answer:The manufacturer recommends that this stove be vented only through a 6" diameter chimney.
By Bruce from Williamsburg, VA on January 4, 2013
A few questions:
(1) Is there a length-limit for the air-intake duct? Or, asked another way, how much should one up-size the duct diameter for runs over the 4' length of the AC02090?
(2) General shipping/delivery questions:
(a) What size truck?
(b) Lift-gate equipped?
(c) What am I expected to provide on my end (forklift, loading dock, ...)?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2013
Answer:This manufacturer specifies a length limit of 10 feet for combustion air ducting. They do not advise exceeding the length limit, even if the duct size was increased. The diameter of the duct will still be sufficient up to 10 feet in length, but the stove will likely not have ample draw to pull air from a longer run.
This unit is delivered via freight on a 53 foot trailer. A lift gate equipped truck can be dispatched for an additional 75 dollar surcharge. The stove will be unloaded curbside at a residence, where you must provide means to move it into the home. A standard trailer can of course deliver to a dock without the lift gate.

Does this unit come with a back flue?
By eFireplaceStore on February 19, 2015
Answer:Unfortunately, no. This model, along with the other EPA stoves we offer, is only available with a top mounted flue collar. This is primarily due to the design of an EPA stove, which all but necessitates the need for a top mount flue collar.
