Latest on the EPA’s NSPS affecting Hearth Products

In February 2015, the EPA published its final rule regarding the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Residential Wood Heaters. Upon the effective date of the new rule—some as early as May of 2015—manufacturers of wood stoves, pellet-burning room heaters, single burn rate stoves and hydronic heaters will not be allowed to produce new appliances unless they meet the Step 1 requirements.
