said by LazMan:You have to be kidding? Inspected by a "Certified WETT Tech"? Canada must be regulated way more than we are here.
You're absolutely right - properly installed and maintained, wood burning appliances can be very safe... But if yours wasn't inspected and approved regularly by a WETT certified tech, and if your insurance isn't notified; you will be up shit creek if anything ever happened.
That ain't 'nanny' stuff; that's just a fact.
