    Common Stove Clearance Questions

    Maintaining stove clearance is an extremely important factor in maintaining a healthy and safe system. You can locate your stoves minimum clearance in your owners’ manual. The following are a few common questions our customers have come across during installation:

    Q: Can I move my stove closer to the wall if I install a clearance shield?

    A: Only if your manufacturer specifically states it within your owners' manual.

    Q: My stove only requires a 6" clearance, but my pipe requires 18"... do I have to move my stove, or can I maintain solely the stove clearance?

    A: You must move your stove to meet your stove pope clearance requirement.
