“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has determined, based on test results from ___________, an independent accredited laboratory, that this model line meets the U.S. EPA Hydronic Heater Voluntary Program Phase 2 emission level. To minimize smoke, always operate your hydronic heater in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions found in the owner’s manual. Additional information about EPA’s Program is available at www.epa.gov/woodheaters.”
