A wood stove without a thermometer is like a car without a speedometer. Informed operation of your stove’s controls shows you when the fire consumes wood too fast, exceeding the stove’s efficient operation zone.
It’s impossible to know accurately, by looking at the burning flames, the temperature of your stove and flue. This thermometer enables you to avoid burning too hot, so you can prevent damage to your stove.
An under-fired wood stove is smoky, causing hazardous creosote and tar to form in the stove pipe. The thermometer informs you when burn rate is too cool, and tell you when optimum firing is achieved for safe operation.
Select a position on flue pipe a little higher than 18 inches above the wood stove. First, drill a three-sixteenths-Inch hole through both stove pipe walls. Second enlarge slightly only the exterior wall hole to one-quarter-inch. Slide magnet (first) and eyelet (second) onto probe, then
insert probe completely through both stove pipe wall into the flue. The magnet will stabilize the assembly securely on steel pipe and, when properly installed, prevent smoke from escaping the flue.
Expected life of a probe thermometer.
Because of highly corrosive gas exhaust in flue pipes, the probe eventually corrodes and will cause inaccurate readings. Replace after 4000 hours of wood stove burning
GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR MOST WOOD STOVES:
900°F (500°C) And Hotter: Safety hazard, could ignite existing flue creosote. High temperature may be reached during initial stove firing, but is not advised for continuing operation. Burning too hot wastes wood, shortens burn time.
400°F - 900°F (200°C - 500°C): Optimum operating zone. Efficient wood-burning without generating excessive smoke and creosote.
400°F (200°C) Or Cooler: Incomplete combustion, casing soot, smoke, and hazardous creosote.

Spreading the word
All in all very pleased with the mantel and the overall experience. Web site was a little tricky as the only way I found to order was by phone. Have told many others about your products.
My bowls look amazing! Could not be happier. Thank you for all the help Linda through the whole process. Very knowledgeable and prompt. Thanks again.
I must say the ladies in customer service really do go above and beyond. They have been quick to respond and extremely helpful. I can not wait to get my concrete bowls and install them. Thank you Dana and Lindsey for great service.
Ron helped me out very well on the phone (assistance with measuring). I was impressed with his follow-up too.
Replacing the glass was a breeze
This is my first time doing business with FastReplacementglass.com, and I am impressed with their customer care, they actually care!!!!. I have talked to Kimberly in person twice and communicated via email more than a couple of times in regards to getting a replacement glass for my fire-place glass bi-fold doors. Actually the glass procurement was the fast and easy part, and it came fast with accurate dimensions finished with a pencil edge that matched the other glass panels perfectly. The challenge after receiving the replacement glass was to find the proper gasket to replace the old used gaskets. Kimberly is very knowledgeable and has solutions for unique problem jobs like mine turned out to be.
