CHECKING YOUR WOOD STOVE’S TEMPERATURE: 3 THERMOMETERS THAT WORK
What’s the best way to know if your fire is burning cleanly and efficiently? The answer is simple – a quality thermometer. Keeping a fire within a safe temperature range is important for reducing the chance of creosote buildup and flue damage. If the fire is too hot, it can damage the stove and lead to fire. A blaze that burns too low increases the amount of harmful byproducts that it creates. Anyone who uses a wood stove can benefit from installing a thermometer onto their unit.
Here are three of the industry’s top wood stove thermometers:
Flue Gas Probe Thermometer
With readings up to 2000˚ Fahrenheit, this thermometer features temperature zones to clearly display when the fire is burning too cool, too hot, or at optimum operation. The probe itself is constructed of copper and then coated with a protective porcelain enamel finish.
Chimguard Energy Meter
Need a quick fix that is easy to install? The Chimguard Energy Meter magnetically attaches to either a stove pipe or a stove top. It tells the operator precisely how efficient their fire is and provides accurate readings within a 5% range.
Inferno Stove Top Meter
Calibrated specifically for the stove top, this thermometer is easy to read and use. The Inferno Stove Top Meter breaks down temperature ranges into three categories: Creosote, Best Zone, and Too Hot.
When installing a wood stove into your customer’s home suggest that they add a quality thermometer to the unit. This simple, inexpensive device can help save them money on wasted fuel while keeping their blazes within the optimal temperature range.
