What You Need to Know

Other Benefits:

Closed carbon loop, not fossil fuel based, local, renewable fuel source, clean burning, aesthetically pleasing, useful for cooking as well as space heat

Maintenance Requirements:

Clean chimney every other year, empty ash drop twice per year. Stacking firewood once per year. Carrying firewood once a day during heating season..

My Motivation:

#1 - To keep warm #2 - To benefit the environment #3 - To avoid dependency on fossil fuels which will get more expensive and unreliable in supply


1 - Do research. Go see masonry heaters that work right first. Some versions are better than others. 2 - Plan a convenient way to clean the chimney - either in the basement or a safe access from the roof

Additional Notes:

We love our masonry heater
