Masonry heaters are the descendants of traditional European fireplace designs, where the need for warmth in cold winter climates came up against an urgent requirement to conserve wood resources. They are unmatched in the ability to burn solid wood cleanly and with maximum efficiency. Their superiority over traditional metal stoves was recognized as far back as Mark Twain. Any of our masonry heater designs will produce significant radiant wood heat with a very comfortable low surface temperature. They are typically sized according to the space for which heat is desired and can be surfaced with almost any masonry or ceramic material.
