The ChimGaurd Stovepipe Thermometer by Condar is the best way to monitor the combustion of your woodstove for optimum efficiency and reduce the risk of chimney fires. The ChimGaurd Stovepipe Thermometer is easy to install and use. This simple thermometer creates safer operation and protects your wood stove by keeping it within the proper range of temperatures.
Even well-engineered wood stoves must be operated properly to achieve maximum efficiency. Many people burn their stoves unnecessarily “hot” and therefore fuel is wasted without generating additional room heat. Use a thermometer to know when the fire is consuming wood too fast, exceeding the manufacturer’s most efficient operating temperature zone.
It is impossible to know accurately, simply by looking at the flames, the temperatures of your wood stove and chimney flue. The ChimGard Stovepipe Thermometer warns you when your fire is too hot for your woodstove. Extend its service lifetime by avoiding damage to metal components.
When under-fired, woodstove fires are smoky, causing fire hazard from creosote tar build-up in the stovepipe. The ChimGard Stovepipe Thermometer tells you when your fire temperature is too cool, and again informs you when optimum temperature is achieved, so you can decelerate your burn rate before the woodstove gets too hot.
