Wood Stove Removal

Whether you're getting ready to sell a house or upgrading your existing wood stove, getting rid of one can be quite a hassle. On top of that, local environmental laws can be confusing to navigate. That's why Weirwood Chimney and Stoves makes it quick and easy to remove your stove and get your DEQ confirmation number within 24 hours. So give us a call now to get that metal monster out of your living room.

Oregon's "HeatSmart" law requires all uncertified wood stoves to be removed from the home before it may be sold. Any wood burning stove that was not certified to meet emission standards at the time of manufacture must be removed and taken to a recycling facility or authorized scrap metal dealer.

How do I know if my wood burning stove or insert stove is certified?

Look for a plaque on the back of the stove, and there it should tell you if it was certified by the EPA or the DEQ. An example of each label is provided below:

Certified stoves burn cleaner, giving off 4.5 grams of smoke per hour; most old wood burning stoves release 15-30 grams per hour.

As of 2020, all wood burning stove shops are required to sell stoves that meet a new standard of 2.5 grams of smoke per hour.
