Stovepipe thermometers help to:
Even well-engineered woodstoves must be operated properly to achieve maximum efficiency. Many people burn their stoves unnecessarily hot and therefore fuel is wasted without generating additional room heat. Use a thermometer to know when the fire is consuming wood too fast, exceeding the manufacturer’s most efficient operating temperature zone.
Protect your woodstove
It is impossible to know accurately, simply by looking at the flames, the temperatures of your woodstove and chimney flue. The thermometer warns you when your fire is too hot for your woodstove and extends its service lifetime by avoiding damage to metal components.
Burn more safely
When under-fired, woodstove fires are smoky, causing fire hazard from creosote tar build-up in the stovepipe. A woodstove thermometer tells you when your fire temperature is too cool, and again informs you when optimum temperature is achieved, so you can decelerate your burn rate before the woodstove gets too hot.
Place your stovepipe thermometer about 3 ft up from the top of the stove.
When suspended under our stoves, our heat reflectors [made from aluminized fiberglass cloth] virtually eliminate radiant heat from the bottom of the stove. The material, aluminized fiberglass cloth, is light and rolls up easily to fit inside your stove for transport. When combined with our stove hearth, you can greatly reduce the melting of snow and ice under your stove. This is especially nice when you set up camp on lake ice.View
