Masonry Heater

"The masonry heater fireplace is beautiful, simple, and it burns a fraction of the firewood that the boiler did."

Mark Seymour, of Radiant Hearth in Potsdam, NY. and a member of the Masonry Heater Association of North America, designed and built a Tulikivi masonry heater for the Mac Kentley family in northern New York. The masonry heater fireplace is beautiful, simple, and it burns a fraction of the firewood that the family's boiler did. One fire is normally enough to keep the home comfortable but when it is below zero, their needs to be one fire in the morning and one in the evening. The amount of firewood used to keep warm is amazingly small. That means there is firewood left in the woodshed at the end of the winter season and that translates into saving money.

The masonry heater has been one of the smartest investments we've made in our attempt to be self-reliant for our home heating. "We look forward to cutting less firewood in our "golden years", and knowing that burning less is lowering our contribution to CO2 and climate change" said Bill and Di MacKentley.

The Masonry Heater Association of North America is an excellent source to learn about masonry heaters. They provide instructional classes throughout North America and host a weeklong meeting with workshops and seminars. They also have an excellent website with a gallery of photos and educational materials. If interested in masonry heaters, visiting the Masonry Heater Association’s website is a must.

The Masonry Heater Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the interests of the masonry heating industry. Founded in 1987, MHA is an association of builders, manufacturers, and retailers of masonry heaters.
