Strange Wood Heater Location

Harman Oakwood Wood Stove

This photograph shows an attractive antique looking wood heater which I found on . . . but its location looks very odd to me:

  • As it has been placed in front of varnished timber it has had to be placed well away from the corner meaning it’s taking a lot of space away from the room.
  • A large proportion of the radiant heat from the stove, and the stove pipe, will be lost through those windows behind it.
  • Any attempt to reduce the heat loss through those windows by curtains will increase the fire risk.

You need to remember that wood heater efficiency isn’t just about the stove. . . . it’s also about the location.

    You’re so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve read through a
    single thing like that before. So great to find somebody with original thoughts on this subject.

    Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that
    is required on the internet, someone with some originality!
