BPI does not consider fireplaces or wood stoves to be combustion appliances. Yet they produce CO and can backdraft fumes into a house.
Obviously you can't perform a spillage, CO, or draft test on a fireplace, and you wouldn't want to run a blower door or duct blaster soon after having a fire in a wood stove or fireplace.
But what do you think would be a good worst case depressurization limit for a fireplace or wood stove? -5 pascals, same as a natural drafting furnace or boiler?
Anyone ever do a spillage, CO, or draft test on a wood stove?
What have you done or recommended if a fireplace or wood stove backdrafts under worst case or natural conditions?
