Is this product able to be used on a wood burning fireplace insert? If so, where is the best place to put it?
By Will M. on January 28, 2015
Answer:Wood burning inserts are almost identical to their wood stove counterparts in construction. As such, this thermometer could be placed on the top surface of a wood insert.

our the flue for our old Hearthstone does not hold a magnet -- the adv. here says to put on stove top but the thing itself just says for the flue pipe. I don't want to drill a hole and use the screw....should I adjust temps if I just sit it on the top

Answer:The thermometer can indeed be placed directly on top of the stove, near the flue collar for the most accurate temperatures. Older stoves did not feature the ceramic baffles in the upper firebox and as a result, the top of the stove achieves a temperature that is close to the flue collar. A 50 to 75 degree cooler temperature differential is common.

Is there a 3-blade Caframo Ecofan for wood stoves?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 25, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, no. We have two 2-blade models for wood stoves and one 3-blade model that is only for use with gas stoves.

We have a soapstone stove with a double stove pipe. Where, on the top of the stove, should this HomeSaver magnetic stove thermometer rest? The stove is hottest near the stove pipe.

We were given a HomeSaver magnetic stove Thermometer (#40900.) We have double wall pipe. Is there any way to use the thermometer with our pipe? It normally reads between 150 to 250 degrees no matter how big our fire is. We are assuming it will not go higher because we have the double-walled pipe.
If you can use it, is the current reading we are getting correct for double-walled pipe?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 31, 2012
Answer:This thermometer is primarily intended for use with single walled stovepipe. While its optimal temperature gauge will not be correct with double wall stovepipe, it will accurately reflect the surface temperature of your double-walled stovepipe. Between 125 to 300 degrees can be expected for double-walled pipe, depending on the stage of the fire and the wood being burned.
By your description, it sounds like your thermometer is reading accurately.
