Register Your Stove
From November 1st through the end of February, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District posts daily notices indicating whether or not fireplace and woodstove burning is allowed. Restrictions are imposed on a county-by-county basis. On some days, when air pollution is unusually light, there will be no restrictions for any of the counties in the District.
Conversely, on a very few days when air pollution is unusually high, no burning is allowed. There was only one such day is the 2014-15 season in Stanislaus County when this restriction was imposed.
On Most days, however, only those woodstoves that are EPA II Certified and are registered with the District are allowed to burn. Registration must be made through an independent, District Registered Wood Burning Heater Professional (RWBHP) who must inspect your wood or pellet stolve to insure that it meets all requirements. Registrations remain in effect for three winter seasons. We are registered with the District to provide such registrations. Call us at 209-656-9008 to arrange such an inspection.
