The NSPS for New Residential Wood Heaters

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New Source Performance Standards, (NSPS) the program which governs emissions for wood burning appliances, was updated for the first time in over 20 years February 2015. Initiated in 1988, the NSPS controls the manufacture, sale, and import of "wood heaters," and only affects new products not already installed in residences.

This revision impacts wood and pellet stoves, outdoor hydronic heaters, and wood warm air furnaces. HPBA's legal, research, and legislative staff have worked hard to effect a positive outcome for our industry, members, and the public.
