The Hearthmaster Stove
Once the fire is burning hot, a door is closed which sends the flue
gasses down and horizontally under a stone bench that is warm and
inviting to sit on. Copper coils circulate water for baths and
This amazing stove produces twice the heat with half the wood, plus,
it heats all the domestic water.
This means that the woodpile lasts twice as long, with more heat
delivered to where it is needed, not up the chimney.
Normal woodstoves send 60-70% of their heat up the chimney. The
Hearthmaster retains 60-70% and sends the rest up, reversing the
figures, doubling the woodpile.
I have noticed in my Heartmasters (we have 2) that the fire does not
need to roar in order to produce a lot of heat, itís just a kind of
meandering, calm flame that nibbles the wood, doesnít consume it
In my 30 years of heating with wood, Iíve never seen anything come
close to this stove.
