How old is my wood burning stove?

If you’re wondering how old your Scan stove is, or what model it is, you can look for a type approval that will tell you what model it is. If your wood burning stove, fireplace, or fireplace insert is less than 10 years old, you can find information about it on our documentation site. If your fireplace is older, you can take some photos of it and bring them or send them to your nearest Scan dealer so they can help you further.

If the fireplace is of an older generation, you can find manuals for discontinued wood stoves, fireplaces and fireplace inserts from Scan. Or you can take some pictures of it and take them with you or send them to your nearest Scan dealer, and they can help you further.

Is my stove a clean burning wood stove?

According to government requirements, stoves and fireplaces sold by dealers after 01.07.1998 must be clean burning. You can usually tell by looking for the characteristic holes for secondary combustion which are pierced either in a baffle or the rear plate in the fireplace’s chamber. If you are in doubt, you can bring or send a picture of the stove to your dealer so they can help you.

Can I convert my old stove into a clean burning wood stove?

It is not possible to convert a non-clean burning wood stove or fireplace to a clean burning one. As these non-clean burning stoves are highly polluting you should consider replacing it with a newer model. Take a look at Scan’s wood stoves, fireplace inserts and fireplaces with cutting edge combustion technology.

Can I move my old stove?

You can move or reinstall a wood stove you have in your home for maintenance and repair reasons. However, you cannot install a stove that is not clean burning. Contact your nearest Scan showroom expert who can help you determine whether your stove or fireplace can be resold or should be recycled.

Can I sell my old stove?

We advise against reselling stoves with old burning technology as they cannot be fitted in new installations. Older fireplaces release more particles during burning than new clean burn wood stoves and fireplaces with cutting edge technology. However, please be aware that you cannot fit non clean burning stoves or fireplaces into new installations. So, if you’re in the market for one, be careful. If your stove is relatively new and you are completely sure that it is clean burning you can resell your wood stove.

Some of our dealers also offer to take away your old stove when they install a new one. Ask them about this option when you arrange installation of a new fireplace.
