Wood Heat Fire Stone - TULIKIVI® of Finland
Advantages of TULIKIVI® Soapstone Masonry Heaters
Instead of producing creosote and air pollution, the gasses coked off of the fire in a masonry heater pass up and downward through stone passageways built into the unit, where they are "flashed" at high temperatures and the energy released is absorbed into the soapstone mass. Thus one fire a day will store enough heat energy in the soapstone to provide comfortable radiant heat for the next 24 hours!
TULIKIVI has taken this 300 year old concept and through scientific testing and CAD design, "tweaked" the efficiency of their soapstone masonry heaters to new levels of 90%+ burn efficiency and maximum exhaust air cleanliness.
