Indoor fireplaces

Indoor fireplaces (fireplaces, slow combustion stoves, etc.)

If you have just installed a solid burning appliance (indoor fireplace), it is strongly recommended that you have it inspected by a professional. Moreover, it must be approved by the Standards Council of Canada and bear a seal certifying that it complies with the manufacturing standards.

It is prohibited to burn garbage, scraps or recyclable materials in an indoor fireplace. Only dry wood, ecological logs and other products designed and specifically intended for heating, as indicated in the manufacturer's guide, may be used in an indoor fireplace.

Storage of combustible materials intended for a heating unit

Combustible materials intended for a heating unit may be stored indoors on condition that they:

  • are placed at least 1 m from the heating unit;
  • are placed at least 3 m from any opening into a building;
  • do not obstruct any exit;
  • are specifically the kind of material that is intended to be used in the heating unit; and
  • represent no more than two cords.

A cord corresponds to approximately 3.6 m³ of heating wood, which includes wood, bark and interspaces.
