HOW DOES THE CHARMASTER BURN SO EFFICIENTLY?
Since 1972 CHARMASTER'S "EXCLUSIVE OVER THE FIRE" DRAFT

All Chalet, Charmaster and Charmaster II models have a sliding, heavy duty steel, solid grate system. Our furnaces bring their combustion air into the firebox over the top of the fire. This is what we call our "Over the Fire" draft.


Combustion Air Flow Within our large 11" x 13" cast iron wood loading door is a smaller draft door. When your wood thermostat calls for heat, the draft door opens, allowing air to enter in "Over the Fire". This creates a large bed of hot charcoal embers, which is the base for a tremendous source of heat for your home. Heat from the firebox and heat exchanger rises into your plenum. A standard fan limit switch senses the temperature in the plenum, which turns on your furnace blower and distributes the heat into your ductwork.

With our "Over the Fire" draft, your wood combustion will be complete. Ashes are burned thoroughly to a powder consistency. The continuous heat reserve also prevents your chimney from cooling down. A warm smoke pipe and chimney cannot produce creasote.

Charmaster Furnaces are proven money savers A Charmaster furnace will squeeze all of the heat from your wood with this efficient process, and will consume far less wood than other wood furnaces.

A larger charcoal bed allows burning wood earlier in the Fall and continue later in the Spring, with safe, clean equipment. The longer yearly burn times with a Charmaster furnace offers our customers even greater savings on their oil and gas bills. This is why a Charmaster furnace is the most efficient, dependable and practical wood furnace money can buy. This is why Charmaster is America's Finest Heating System.


Up to 60% of the heat available from wood is in the gases. Charmaster's exclusive "over-the-fire" draft system, combined with its airtight design, burns these gases more completely. It's a fact. With a CHARMASTER, your fire burns hotter, and requires substantially less wood.

Advantages of Charmaster's "Over-the-Fire" Draft
Adequate oxygen supply (above the fire) means efficient and complete combustion of gases. A hotter and cleaner burn.
Low wood consumption... extra long "burn-time." Converts wood to a bed of charcoal.
Extra large "heat reserve" (charcoal bed) means a warm home in the morning, and a clean chimney.
Thermostatically controlled even heat throughout your home.
Fewer ashes to remove.
Other Furnaces
Other Draft Systems

High wood consumption, excessive heat loss.
Burns the oxygen from the combustion air when passing through the fire. No charcoal.
