Should I be worried?
Mid Does your SCR have the heat shield on the back with the heat shield on the back the clearance is 18" for the back of stove and 19" from Flue Pipe. Sides of stove is 20" Flue Pipe is 30" If not the stove should be 36" away from anything that can catch fire does you sheet rock have paper on it. Paper starts to burn at 319F. If you see it start to turn brown it is getting to hot. If you use Millboard Or Equivalent 8" Clearance for back & sides Front of stove should be 16" Look at
