Re: Rumford Fireplace for new house in Ruby Ranch subdivision permit # 99-0127
Dear Mr. Weinman,
Attached are the emissions test results for the Rumford fireplaces which have been approved in the state of Washington and in some places in Colorado and California. As you can see the Rumfords are sufficiently clean-burning to pass the Colorado Regulation #4 standard for "masonry heaters" of 6 grams of PM-10 per kilogram of fuel burned. They also are as clean-burning as EPA certified stoves as determined by the Washington State fireplace standard of 7.3 g/kg which is equivalent to the EPA stove standard of 7.5g/hr.
I have asked the EPA certified testing lab, OMNI Environmental, to send you the results directly and officially.
We ask you to approve our Rumford fireplaces, based on these test results, for use in Summit County, CO. They have already been approved in Eagle County and Grand County on the basis that they meet the performance standards set in Colorado by Regulation #4 for stoves and for masonry heaters.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 360 385 9974 or on my cell at 360 531 1081 or call Paul Tiegs at OMNI at 503 643 3788. The test results and related information is also on line linked to http://www.rumford.com/emissions/index.htm
