Why it is intelligent to use a woodstove thermometer.
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. Extend 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. Condar invented the woodstove thermometer in the 1970s and continues as the only USA manufacturer of these indispensable aids to better wood-burning.
Condar thermometers attach magnetically, directly to metal flue pipe. Optimal location is at eye level, no less than 12 inches above the top of the stove. Each thermometer comes with a cool-touch bail for ease of movement. The bail, a flip-up stainless steel handle, can be used to reposition the thermometer. Thermometer Instructions:
Consult your stove manufacturer's manual for precise temperature recommendations. See below for approximate guidelines, if installed at eye level on a single-wall flue pipe: Less than 230°F (110°C): Temperature too low. Incomplete combustion, causing smoke, soot and hazardous creosote. Open draft and/or add dry fuel. 230°F to 475°F (110°C to 250°C): Safe operating temperature. Complete combustion and best efficiency. Greater than 475°F (250°C): Wasting energy, possibly overheating. While high temperatures are often reached on initial firing, should not be maintained for normal operation.
