As the economy slowly claws its way back to something resembling its former self, interested masonry heater clients are beginning to redefine themselves. We’re fielding less questions about house plans and more questions like: How can I convert my existing fireplace into something more efficient? How can I do more with less?
More and more, we’re hearing from folks who want to upgrade what they have and not have to secure a second mortgage to do it. Cottage heaters, whether intended to be primary heat for a small home or a space heater in an existing larger home, are great, cost effective alternatives to their larger, hulkier brethren.
The beauty of a cottage heater is not only its elegant and simple appearance, and not just its even radiant heat, it’s also the simplicity of its incorporation into one’s life. For 2 days we gently take over your space and then voila, we’re gone.
So simple, so clean.
With up to 1000 ft2 of heating capability, cottage heater designs can offer an auxiliary heat source, that in many cases, can carry more than 50% of a home’s heating load, and at the same time offer a heat so unique, you’ll swear off conventional wood stoves forever. With a firing cycle every 12 hours, a typical cottage heater requires less than 40 lbs of wood per burn and radiates a steady surface temperature for 6-12 hours, varying by only 40 degrees between burns. No more dips, no more highs. No more sweating and no more freezing.
