1. Input value at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density and dry energy value of 8,600 BTU/lb.
2. Unless stated otherwise, measures were taken directly at the main power source and include all electrical components present in the appliance.
3. Optimum overall efficiency at a specific burn rate (LHV).
4. Based on delivered heat output.
5. This appliance is officially tested and certified by an independent agency.
6. Delivered: Remotely provided to other rooms through ducting at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density over one total burn cycle.
7. Overall : Radiated and delivered heat together at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density over one total burn cycle.
8. Efficiency based on delivered heat when allowing cycling from high to low burn to simulate thermostat demand. LHV % is based on manufacturer’s estimation.
9. Lower Heating Value of the fuel.
10. Higher Heating Value of the fuel.
11. Efficiency based on radiated and delivered heat when allowing cycling from high to low burn to simulate thermostat demand.
12. Recommended heating area and maximum burn time may vary subject to location in home, chimney draft, heat loss factors, climate, fuel type and other variables. The recommended heating area for a given appliance is defined by the manufacturer as its capacity to maintain a minimum acceptable temperature considering that the space configuration and the presence of heat distribution systems have a significant impact in making heat circulation optimum.
13. Carbon Monoxyde. Based on overall heat output at 10 lb/ft³ fuel loading density.
