Good News From Quebec.

Marcus Flynn.

My Translation:
Question; ( from A. Fauteux)
 Please could you confirm that both prefabricated and hand built masonry heaters are not touched by the ban on non EPA or CSA certified RWAs. And that it is recognised that masonry heaters are as clean burning as certified apliances. ( for the beginning of the week please )
Response; ( form C. Sasseville)
Effectively masonry heaters are not effected by the program of regulating wood burning appliances.

Effectivement, les foyers de masse ne sont pas visés par le projet de règlement sur le chauffage au bois.


Rebonjour M. Sasseville:
Pouvez-vous svp me confirmer que les foyers de masse
préfabriqués et de construction artisanale ne seront pas
touchés par l'interdiction des appareils de chauffage au
bois non homologués par l'EPA ou la CSA?
Bref confirmer que les foyers de masse sont aussi propres
sinon davantage que les appareils homologués?
Pour le début de la semaine serait parfait.
Merci bien,
