We’re making our own furnace cement!

We recently started making our own furnace cement.  It has been interesting learning to mix a highly viscous material (almost 500,000 centipoise; water is 1 cps) and then fill caulking tubes, but Yankee Ingenuity has prevailed.  Our unique ingredients are soapstone powder, and very small strands of chopped fiberglass.

More Open House Notes

Open House 2015 (Saturday, November 7) is just over a week away, and we are really looking forward to getting together with owners and having a good time, and getting reactions to our newest stove design(s).   We have made all of the food and beverage arrangements, and the food will be excellent.

Keeping an Eye on Fuel Costs

In our area, pellet prices have drifted up from an average of $250/ton to about $300/ton, and the price for #2 fuel oil has dropped from about $3.25 to approximately $2.25 per gallon.

Inside the Race to Zero Stove- Part 1

Our Goal:  Flatline Emissions

The race to zero has begun.  Wood stove emissions are measured in grams per hour of particulates at different burn rates (low, medium, and high).  As a general rule, all stoves have higher emissions at higher burn rates.  The more BTUs per hour a stove produces, the more emissions per hour it produces.  We hope to overcome this “rule”.

Race to Zero T-Shirt

Every worthwhile mission deserves a T-Shirt. Our "Race to Zero" T-shirt is pictured below. For owners who attend our November 7th Open House and let us know by using the RSVP button below, there will be a free T-shirt waiting.
