Long as they donít decide to tighten em up even more before 2020, several manufacturers already have stoves that pass the 2020, regs. The G100 and G200 from Heatmaster already pass as well as the smaller two from Polar.

As was mentioned in the article, cost of testing is a big killer. The timeframe is tight enough but maybe doable.... But the cost at the same time slows innovation. It's a tough situation.
It sounds like the warm air furnace manufacturers are in a tougher spot than the OWB manufacturers.

I didnít delve into the whole article too deep, but will coal boilers still be allowed for residential use after 2020?

We went to a Steam and Power show over the weekend, you could tell which ones were burning coal by the god awful stench if you got downwind of em, made a diesel rolling coal seem like perfume. I mean these things smelled like they were burning used jockstraps, didnít matter is they were just sitting or running, they stunk.

Growing up (er, I mean getting older) we had a coal fired boiler in the basement of our old farmhouse.  I can remember smelling the coal gases if something wasn't running just right.  Man, did that ever stink.  Roger

I don't think the coal exemption is supposed to change but it's been a while since I read all the way through the NSPS. I'm not sure I feel like wading through it again soon either. :o A lot to absorb..
 I think the allowed emissions drop on wood units and the way they average test runs is more stringent.

I thought I read something saying coal was good until 2025 and from then a clean burn act was in process.  This would be for power plants as well.  Called clean coal or something like that. Would need to have an electronic device in the chimney to catch all fine ash particulate plus a reburner filter and catalytic converter

With Trump in office I don't worry about it. Wood stoves and boilers are safe for now.  When I  went to buy  an OWB  3 years ago I had to buy a gasifacation boiler  due to laws in the Peoples republic of Massachusetts, at first the cost pissed me off but it runs great and I burn allot  less than another wood boiler guy I worked with.

I still have my old coal stove in the basement as back up. It burns anthracite so it has no smoke. Still run it here and there in the winter. Nothing beats the heat a coal fire on a cold snowy day.

Really after burning downdraft for over three years I'd never go back to a conventional,  law or no law. They work so much better and more efficient.

Actually when I replaced mine I still had a year left to get a conventional. Less wood for starters and no billowing clouds of smoke for another.

Nobody knows you're even burning wood unless they see you hauling it in. I've seen G's running in pretty densely populated areas with no complaints.

Same here, I could have gone with another conventional when I purchased my current stove. Burning at least 1\3 less wood and no more smoke sold me on a gasifier.
