Our Dwarf stoves are designed specifically for small recreational or temporary spaces less than 500 square feet like tents, RVs, boats, and tiny homes on wheels. The Dwarf stove is not certified (UL/CSA) or approved (EPA) for residential heating and is offered for recreational, portable, or temporary use only.
In some cases, local codes may permit use of a non-certified stove in a residential building. However, the US EPA prohibits installing new unapproved wood stoves like the Dwarf in permanent residential structures anywhere in the United States.
If you are not sure if your space requires a UL-listed or EPA certified stove, it’s best to speak with a building inspector or your insurance agent. Some areas allow installations of non-certified stoves after meeting certain requirements.
If you have any questions about stove certifications, feel free to reach out to us via phone or email.
