The Technology Behind Harman Wood Stoves
If you have a Harman wood-burning stove, you know it packs a powerful punch of heat. Load it up with quality, seasoned wood and it’ll crank out heat all day long, and even overnight. Yes indeed, that’s not your parents’ old wood-burning stove in the corner! That’s 21st century, made-in-the-USA burn technology at work in your Harman, and it’s converting every single bit of wood into heat for your home. That means you make less trips to the wood pile and there’s less ash to clean up.
The technologies behind today’s Harman stoves really do make dated stoves look like something out of the dark ages. Our wood stoves are outfitted with FireDome technology, which produces both primary and secondary combustion, meaning that in addition to burning wood, the stove re-burns the smoke and exhaust for super-efficient fires. And it’s non-catalytic, so the system does not degrade in performance over time. Want to see it in action? Watch this video about FireDome.
Take it to the Max: Zone Heat
Heating with wood in your super-efficient Harman stove means you’re using renewable fuel instead of fossil fuel – and it can save you money too. But there’s more. You take efficiency to the max by “zone heating” the rooms where you spend the most time.
Here’s how it works… Most of us have central furnaces that push large amounts of heat through the duct system – they’re designed to heat the whole house equally. With zone heating, you reduce energy consumption (and your heating bill) by simply turning down the central thermostat and using your wood stove to heat your main living areas. If your home has a larger footprint, many stoves will heat big areas, like the Harman TL300 wood stove.
We call it “heating where you live.” The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association calls it efficient, since depending on your circumstances, zone heating can reduce heating bills by as much as 20-40 percent.
So why wait any longer? Summer is the perfect time to recycle your old, inefficient wood-burning stove and replace it with a new Harman. Check out all the options here.
