Among the cleanest and most efficient cordwood burning technology options are masonry heaters. Today's model combines all that's best from time-tested, traditional European designs with state-of-the-art engineering. Choose from site-built, one-of-a-kind creations or affordable, prefabricated kits.
Masonry heaters are ideal in cold climates where there is a demand for steady heat. Small, hot fires are burned and the heat is absorbed by a high mass of masonry. The stone mass radiates a gentle warmth as the heat is released slowly over time. These units are more expensive and require a solid foundation, but only have to be fired once or twice a day.
