The installation of your Lopi Endeavor should go smoothly. I'm sure your local shop has competent installers. I don't know if you have done this or not, but it is always good to have a copy of their insurance and workers comp. this indemnities you in case someone gets hurt at your home. If they are not insured, any injuries will be put against your homeowners insurance. At least that is the way it works in NY. In addition, our town required a building permit, and the contractor had to be licensed by our town. It is always good to have a few layers of protection, legally, being you are the homeowner. This is a tricky one, but insurance companies like to be notified upon installation and inspection by the town's fire marshal or other official that performs the inspection to issue a certificate of compliance. Then there are no questions that you are covered in the event of a related incident. The installers should be neat, work efficiently, and most of all answer any questions you have. Look in the flue opening in the top of the Endeavor before it is installed to see and be shown how the bypass damper works. It gives you a better understanding of that working component. When done, the installers should leave the area as clean as when they arrived. This is just a guideline for what to look for. It is important to use common sense to protect yourself and home. Learn all you can about maintaining the stove and flue, and use properly seasoned wood. Your stove should come with a moisture meter. Use it. It is an important piece of equipment to determine if the wood you are burning is below 20% moisture. A necessity for today's EPA stoves. Good luck. I hope you enjoy your new Endeavor, as I have been very happy with mine.
