To minimize the leakage of combustion gases into the occupied space of the home.


Option 1. No Fireplace or Woodstove (2 points)

Do not install any fireplaces or woodstoves.


Option 2. Enhanced Combustion Venting Measures (1 point)

For any wood- or pellet-burning fireplaces and stoves, install equipment that is EPA qualified. Provide power or direct venting.

For any natural gas, propane, or alcohol stoves, install equipment listed by an approved safety testing facility. The stove must have a permanently fixed glass front or gasketed door and an electronic pilot. Provide power or direct venting.
