Why Install a Masonry Heater?
Masonry heaters are specially designed to burn efficiently and store heat for a long period of time. The built-in design of masonry heaters allow the fires to reach temperatures of ~1200ºF. The heat from the core of the heater is stored in the mass of the heater and radiates out gently. The radiant heat that masonry heaters produce evenly warms the area to a stable and comfortable temperature for periods of up to 12 hours. Often, masonry heaters don’t need to be fired more than once or twice a day, sparing you the cost of precious firewood and the time involved in keeping the fire stoked.
