2015 ANSI Glass Safety Barrier Standard for Glass-Fronted Gas Appliances

The new 2015 ANSI Glass Barrier Standard states that as of January 1, 2015, all gas fireplaces and glass-fronted gas heaters (fireplaces, stoves and inserts) must be manufactured with 2015 ANSI-compliant glass screens or barriers if their glass surface temperatures exceed 172 degrees Fahrenheit.

Within the last year we have been very proactive in making sure we were ahead of the curve in our manufacturing process to accommodate this new safety standard. We began the transition of building ANSI-compliant products in summer, 2014 so that we would be able to continue manufacturing our gas products after the New Year without any setbacks.

Currently, our Avalon gas fireplaces, stoves and insert faces are being built and manufactured with 2015 ANSI-compliant safety screens, or they will be built with them on their next production run. *The only two Avalon gas products that do not currently have ANSI-compliant safety screens on them are the 21 TRV and the 564 Diamond-Fyre gas fireplaces. Once the 2014 inventory is sold out of these units we will manufacture them as ANSI-compliant models.

Any Avalon gas fireplaces, stoves and insert faces that were built and manufactured PRIOR TO JANUARY 1, 2015 are exempt from this standard and can still be purchased safely with no restrictions or timeframe limitations.

Our ANSI-compliant safety screen:

  • - Is practically INVISIBLE. It is so discrete that it does not detract from the fire view in any way.
  • - It provides a safety barrier that protects against accidental contact with the hot glass surfaces, reducing potential for injury.
  • - It has no effect on the heat output of the unit.
  • - It reduces glare from the glass.
  • - It is built directly onto our gas stoves and fireplaces, and directly onto the faces of our inserts.
  • - It has been tested well beyond the ANSI testing protocols and is approved to Travis Industries’ standards.

Safety is a major concern when burning a fire in any home; especially homes with small children. Children, like most of us, are fascinated by fire- and it is important to protect them from coming in contact with any hot surfaces. Even after the appliance is turned off, the surface temperatures remain hot for a period of time.

  • - If your Avalon gas heater is not a 2015 ANSI-compliant model, you still have the ability to provide a safety barrier with your unit.
  • - There are several different protective barriers available for our fireplaces, stoves and inserts that can be purchased at your local Avalon dealer.
  • - These ANSI-compliant barriers are easy to install and simply need to be placed around your unit in order to keep children at least an arm’s length away from the fire.

Avalon’s AGP Freestanding Stove and Insert are Now EPA Certified as Extremely Clean-Burning Pellet Appliances!

The Avalon AGP pellet stove and insert are already known as the most reliable pellet appliances on the market. They are easy to own, easy to live with, and easy to maintain. Now they are officially certified by the EPA as some of the cleanest-burning pellet appliances on the planet!

The AGP freestanding stove is EPA certified at only 0.67 Grams/Hour, while the AGP insert is certified at just 0.66 Grams/Hour! These outstanding emissions rates not only meet, but surpass the particulate matter emission limit of 7.5 Grams/Hour, so you can feel good about burning these appliances in your home.

In some states it really pays off to purchase an AGP pellet appliance. For the remainder of 2014, Oregon state citizens can earn up to $288 in state tax credit with the purchase of the AGP pellet stove or insert, through the Oregon Department of Energy. Residents of the state of New York can also receive up to $1,500 through NYSERDA with the purchase of an AGP stove or insert, as long as their home is not being serviced by natural gas. In New York, households with an income of less than 80% of the county median may qualify for an incentive of $1,000 for the purchase of a new pellet stove in a primary residence, and an additional $500 if an existing wood or pellet stove is recycled.

It is important to note that these appliances will achieve low smoke outputs and high efficiencies as long as they are properly operated and maintained. Both the AGP stove and insert have a 78% efficiency value. This is because they were not tested for efficiency and the 78% value is a default efficiency applied by the EPA to non-catalytic pellet heaters.

Consumer Tax Credit Extended

As part of the “fiscal cliff” package that passed Congress on January 1, 2013, the expired tax credit on energy-efficient biomass-burning appliances was reinstated for 2013.

The credit, lobbied aggressively by the Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI), provides a 10 percent tax credit, up to $300 in value, on the purchase of a qualifying wood or pellet-burning product. The tax credit is also limited to a $500 “lifetime limit” and applies to 2013 and retroactively to appliances purchased between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012.

For more information on the current tax credit, please visit HPBA.ORG.
