When enjoying your stove or insert, it’s important to remember these basic safety precautions:
- Stoves and inserts become hot during operation whether they burn pellets or wood. Keep clothing, furniture, draperies and other flammables a safe distance away.
- Stove and insert glass surfaces get extremely HOT and can cause burns if touched. Free-standing screens or barriers help reduce the risk of serious burns, as they can prevent skin from coming into direct contact with the glass. However, screens also retain heat so touching them is not advised.
- Keep children away from stoves and inserts. All parts of these appliances get extremely hot and should be treated with caution. Supervise children and pets to ensure they stay a safe distance away.
- Stoves and inserts (and their surrounding material) will remain hot for a period of time after being turned off, so caution should be used at all times.
