Wood Burning Stove Thermal Mass
I've added 30 concrete blocks around my wood burning stove to add thermal mass for heat storage. Once I've decided on the exact configuration and gotten all the blocks in that I want I'll probably cover it with cob or mortar on some rocks. Does cob adhere well on top of concrete? My only concern with such a covering would be access to the stove should I need to do any maintenance. Still thinking on that. I can report that after burning a couple fires this thermal mass makes all the difference. Granted it has mostly been in the 40s I'm seeing a big difference. I can burn a 3-5 log fire once a day at these temps and the mass stores and releases the heat till the next day. NICE. My guess is that when we dip into real winter temps I'll be able to burn a morning and evening fire, each 4-6 logs and coast the rest of the time. If that works out it would be a reduction of about 70%! Not only that but the burn time is short and hot which means much more efficient. No more throttling down the burn to control the temp and lengthen the burn time all of which means more pollution. Much less smoke and much less work chopping wood!Quadrafire wood-burning stove
Much of the heat on a Quadrafire actually comes from the reburning of smoke as it passes through the drilled steel tubes on the top of the chamber. This results in almost an upside-down fire, as the smoke burns from top to bottom - an effect I have yet to capture effectively. The re-burning of the smoke also makes this stove nearly pollution-free.
