    I just bought a Kozy Previa pellet stove. It says that I need 6" clearance to floor but I don't see anything about a hearth? I have bamboo flooring that the stove will sit on. Should I still have a hearth for my stove to sit on or is it ok to sit right on the bamboo floor? Thanks.

    I figured they meant 6" of non combustible material but I just wanted to make sure before I built a hearth. Thanks.

    You can build or buy a hearth pad for the stove to sit on.
