Masonry Heaters for Energy Efficient Warmth

A masonry heater provides very energy efficient heating for your home or room. The masonry heater provides a very clean-burning method to heat with wood. There is a long tradition from Europe of slow heat release appliances. Grundofen, Kachelofen, Kakelugn, Putzofen to name a few, were constructed over 500 hundred years ago. A masonry heater uniquely captures and stores large amounts of heat from hot clean fires, and provides even, radiant heat for up to 18 to 24 hours at a time, after the fire has gone out. The radiant heat supplied by a masonry heater creates a healthier comfort level that simply cannot be equaled by convection or forced air systems. Imagine heating with wood without dust covering your room!
