Fire Deck model numbers containing a -W should be vented in accordance with codes concerning solid fuel appliances (NFPA 96). Due to the dangers of creosote buildup and of sparks entering the duct, these models should be vented separately from all other kitchen equipment or in such a manner as is acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction. The Wood Stone customer support staff is available to answer any questions concerning installation and venting of the oven; call 1-800-988-8103 for assistance and technical support.
Solid fuel exhaust contains creosote and other substances that accumulate in ducting, creating a risk of fire. The rate of accumulation will vary with respect to flue gas temperature, wood type and moisture content. Frequent, regularly scheduled, thorough flue cleaning is the best way to minimize the risk of flue fires.
CREOSOTE - AND THE NEED FOR ITS REMOVAL
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool oven flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates in the duct. When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The duct serving this oven should be inspected at least twice a month during the first two months of operation, to establish rate of creosote buildup and necessary cleaning schedule. If creosote or soot has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a flue fire.
WOOD STONE RECOMMENDS THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR VENTING PLANS TO THE AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH INSTALLATION OF ANY GAS AND/OR SOLID FUEL BURNING APPLIANCE.
International Customers Note: Wood Stone ovens should be vented in accordance with pertinent national, regional and local codes concerning such appliances; check venting plans with the authority having jurisdiction before proceeding with installation.
