Masonry heater kit is a set of high precision pre-cut bricks and stone tiles together with metal parts and supply materials that can be assembled into a beautiful masonry heater for your home or your sauna.
Assembly process should take no more than one or two days depending on the heater model. Note however, that connection of a chimney should be taken into account as well. It can be either a very easy process or more difficult one. It depends if you already have a chimney in your house or not.
While assembly process is very straight forward and can be completed by any adult, we strongly recommend to use service of a certified mason from your province to ensure strict adherence to the local building code and fire safety regulations. Please contact us and we will refer you to a certified masons in your region.

Your should always choose masonry heater over a metal stove for following reasons:
First, masonry heaters are much more economical than any metal stove. To keep your masonry heater warm for 12 hours you need to burn just one load of logs. Thus, two load of logs (one in the morning, one in the evening) will keep your masonry heater warm for 24 hours. In contrast, a metal stove stays warm only while logs are burning inside of it.
Second, air quality inside your house will be much better with a masonry heater in comparison with a metal stove. This is due to the temperature difference of the surface of two type of heaters. Surface temperature of a masonry heater will not rise above 170 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows to preserve moisture in the air at your house. In contrast, surface temperature of a metal stove will rise fare above this level making air very dry and uncomfortable to breath.
Third, due to its higher efficiency masonry heater emits significantly lower amount of solid particles and carbon dioxide (per unit of generated heat) into atmosphere. With masonry heater you can keep you home warm and protect environment at the same time.
Fourth but not the last, our masonry heaters are absolutely gorgeous :-)
There are two parts in installation of a heater. First part is assembly of a heater at your home or sauna. Second part is connection (installation) of a chimney to (for) a heater. Price for assembly of each heater you can find on the page of the product in accessories. Price for installation (connection) of the chimney to a heater will have to be determined by your installer.
