Jotul 450 Kennebec - Clearance to Furniture

hatrickJuly 1, 2009

I am looking to put a Jotul 450 Kennebec insert into my fireplace and I have two recliners that are on either side of my hearth at 45 degree angles. They are 24" from where the edge/side of the inserts firebox would be to the side of the recliner and I am wondering if that is enough clearance or if I am going to have any issues with them being that close. There is nothing directly in front of where the stove would be.

If anyone that has a Jotul 450 Kennebec could let me know how hot the area around the stove gets, that would be greatly appreciated. I'll post some pictures of my fireplace area tonight so there is a visual reference to my question.

Thanks,

Eric
