    We have recently purchased a cottage and the wood stove in the cottage is a Heritage Cartier II stove.
    I have no idea how old the stove is nor do I know anything about the stove. I have read on the internet that it may not be EPA approved. I would appreciate anyone's advice as to whether I should leave the stove in the cottage and use it or whether this older type of wood stove is junk and I should update with a newer model woodstove. I must admit I do like the look of it. I appreciate any help or advice.

    If the stove is in good condition and it is safely and properly installed then I can't see a reason to replace it, especially if this is just for occasional burning unless you want to have a cleaner burning stove in place. It has a basic secondary burn system that is better than some of the older stoves.
