“We developed the Heat-Kit system in 1985 to better address both our own needs and those of our clients. It is a system of precast refractory components that has allowed us to reduce the amount of expensive on-site time required to build a heater core by 90% . Our main innovation was to retain about 50% of the firebrick construction in the core, including all critical areas such as the firebox. Firebrick are unsurpassed, in our opinion, for taking the heavy abuse of thermal cycling.
A masonry heater allows you to heat your home with wood in a unique way. Its main distinction is the ability to store a large amount of heat. This means that you can rapidly burn a large charge of wood without overheating your house. The heat is stored in the masonry thermal mass, and then slowly radiates into your house for the next 18 to 24 hours.”
