The client is thrilled with the finished look and functionality of the heater, and enjoys using the oven in her gourmet kitchen. Who says masonry is a lost art?
Masonry Heater Project:
This project was challenging, yet worth the effort. The client wanted a two-sided masonry heater with a heated bench and a bake oven with a rustic look for a new home she was building. Gene Padgitt designed the exterior finish and a chimney that gradually got narrower until it exited the structure.

How masonry heaters work is based on ancient technology that has been around for centuries but the high energy efficient ratings provide a very modern solution for properties of all sizes. Constructed using a unique formula of natural, hardwearing minerals, the Ecco Stove masonry heater is able to heat to extremely high temperatures, which increases smoke combustion and produces lower emissions, equaling major savings for you and the planet!

Silicon Carbide is made up of two minerals extracted from the ground: Silicon and Carbon. When combined, these minerals form one of the hardest materials on earth, second only to diamond.
Silicon Carbide is able to absorb extreme temperatures and then release heat slowly. It offers some of the best energy efficiencies and low levels of carbon available. It is primarily used in electrical conductors and furnaces thanks to its heat conduction properties.
Landy Vent is constantly testing and developing Silicon Carbide in order to improve its efficiency in whole house heating.

We carry this small, but efficient wood-burning hybrid masonry heater/stove from the U.K.
It is assembled on site by our technicians. This type of combination heater/stove produces more heat over a longer period of time than a regular wood-burning stove.
Masonry heaters are site built with firebrick, or a pre-cast core, or a pre-made kit. These appliances use less wood than a high-efficiency wood stove to heat. The right size, location, and style are crucial to optimal performance. Masonry heaters have a large mass of masonry which retains heat and distributes it over many hours. Wood is loaded only once every 12 hours for most heaters, which means that less wood is used in a masonry heater than in a wood stove.
Masonry heaters can be added to an existing home, or optimally, planned in advance for new home construction. There are many factors involved in planning and building a masonry heater.
