Masonry Heaters & Ceramic stoves

Masonry Heaters are an age old and unique way to warm a home. A properly designed heater uses very little wood fuel while providing a wonderfully comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Also known as masonry stoves, kachelofens, Russian fireplaces, Finnish fireplaces, Swedish stoves, tile stoves, contra-flow fireplaces, radiant fireplaces and mass-storage fireplaces. Inside, masonry stoves burn hotter than metal wood stoves and their winding maze of flue (baffles) warms the surrounding masonry, which then emits heat for 18 to 24 hours. The temperature can reach 2000 degrees inside some masonry heaters (vs 700 inside a metal stove), yet they stay comfortable to the touch on the surface.

A spectacular example of a tile-covered Russian stove in the traditional Peasant-style, with a space for sleeping on top!
