The essential wood stove parts that make the entire piece of equipment work in the first place

There may not be anything more aesthetically pleasing – or comforting as far as heat is concerned – of any properly installed and fired up wood stove.

Of all the different heating elements and technologies that we can rely on in our modern world, we continue to turn to the wood stoves for a real reason – there’s just something visceral about being able to sit up next to a roaring fire (even if it is contained inside of a cast-iron and glass box) and enjoy the heat that the fire is creating.

However, many of us simply don’t know how woodstoves work in the first place – not looking at the different wood stove parts but rather at the entirety of the system as a whole. Relatively simple and straightforward, each of the different essential wood stove parts all play a role in creating the kind of heating performance that you’re looking forward to – and we’re going to outline them below.

The actual firebox

The actual firebox – the wood stove parts that are responsible for holding and containing the fire that you are going to create – is almost always made out of solid cast-iron, though there is also very often a glass viewing door for you to check on the fire and enjoy the aesthetics of it as well.

The firebox works as the base of the entire woodstoves, but also as the main heating element. You see, it’s not just the fire that is actually producing heat – it’s the metal that is being heated up while the fire roars and then radiating it into the room.

The stove pipe

Two different types of pipes

Another of the more essential wood stove parts that we need to pay attention to, the stove pipe is so much more than just a tunnel for the smoke to move out of. While it certainly fulfills that purpose as well, the truth of the matter is that we need the stove pipe to function as an air intake and traffic controller – providing much-needed oxygen to our fire to keep it running in roaring all throughout those long winter nights. Without that oxygen, our fires would never get up off the ground – and they certainly wouldn’t last as long as they do.

All in all, those are the most essential wood stove parts that make up the woodstoves that you probably have installed in your home or office.

The different kind of wood stoves

Here at our website we got several articles about the different kinds of woodstoves’. One of the most popular ones on the market today is the jotul wood stove while the gas stove burner is on the rise.

Measure absolutely everything before hand
Too many people think that they can get away with just measuring their new woodstove and then measuring the location that they want to place it in. However, this almost always results in people buying woodstoves that they can fit through door frames, can’t maneuver around furniture, or can’t lift up into the specific spaces that they were hoping to place the equipment in.

It also doesn’t hurt if you’re able to get an accurate weight on exactly how much your new wood stove will clock in at.
