    We just had our offer accepted to purchase a house.
    House comes w/ an already existing woodstove -
    a "Dovre" model. I believe they are European made,
    cast-iron and probably of decent quality. But, my big
    question is whether they are UL-1482 underwritten &
    EPA compliant (unsurance reasons).

    Your input is always appreciated....

    Hi Rob,

    Yes, I believe all the Dovre stoves were UL listed. They were a British company. Now they are a part of Quadra-Fire, which in turn is a part of Hearth & Home Technologies. You might get some help from a Quad dealer.

    Thanks Sean...
    Yes, I heard that too, but was unable to find any such info.
    on the Quadra-Fire website linking Dovre to them.
    I'll keep looking....

    Rob,

    There was a small dovre dealer about 20 minutes away from here. Remember looking at the stoves back in 01 when we were shopping..Is there any model info or anything else that might help? Will call them.

    Rob,

    Just spoke with the Dovre Dealer. If it is UL listed should have a tag on back of stove saying such and the Dovre Model..If no tag probably removed or you got an antique on your hands

    From the Quadrafire web site:


    http://www.quadrafire.com/aboutUs/index.asp


    I might be having a senior moment, but I think Dovre used to be accessable from the Quad web site, I don't see any links now.

    Dover was just absorbed. Quads current cast line is dovre. You can still get old manuals from the website.

    Disected this stove during the house inpsection.
    Turns out that this particular unit carries the
    "Heatilator" name on the back, along with the
    appropriate UL/EPA labeling.
    Was Dovre at one time distributed by Heatilator???
