Where to find the rules
« on: November 12, 2017, 11:28:27 AM »

I'm researching the possibility of getting a boiler and having a difficult time finding anything about them for my area, I live in Dover DE, The epa site sent me to my county site, and that has the entire code book. Which section should I be looking in? Any pointers would be helpful.

There are a few boilers around me, not a lot but they do exist.

Have you tried googling it? Like here I googled ‘LaPorte county outdoor boiler ordinance”

Welcome!

Perhaps your building inspector, code enforcement officer, etc... can offer some information for you.  I have found that if you want answers, you have to call, don't rely on email. 

Good luck with your search.

Yea, I have google'd the crap out of it and haven't come up with anything that applies to a residence yet. I'll call them or go in when I get back.

Here in MA you can go to MA.gov which is our state website and everything regarding OWB and any other solid burning stoves are outlined there. Also gives a list of approved units and regulations going along with them. Maybe something like that exists in DE

Just to a follow up to what I found. Essentially there aren't any rules in my area. It involved quite a bit of calling and waiting for them to get back to me and getting referred to different departments, but in the end they treat them as an outbuilding for set backs and placements. There were a few interesting conversations as to why I'm looking into these but all were relatively supportive in the end which I found pretty good.
