    How Secondary Air Tubes Help With Wood Stove Efficiency

    Wood stoves are very fuel-efficient. They burn wood at a much slower rate than open wood burning fireplaces because less oxygen is allowed into the firebox. So, in the long run, this will mean savings for you even if you choose a higher-end wood burning stove.

    Part of the reason wood stoves are so efficient is they have secondary air tubes. Air intake tubes are what bring oxygen into a wood stove to fuel the combustion of a fire. Secondary air tubes are completely different. They work off of the combustion from inside the stove. Once a wood stove gets hot enough, secondary air tubes take over and help reburn particulates inside of the stove.

    How Secondary Air Tubes Help With Wood Stove Efficiency

    Many people nowadays are concerned with the impact wood burning appliances have on the environment. Over the years, the EPA has placed stricter and stricter standards on wood stove emissions. This has ensured that most of them now put off so little byproduct that it hardly has an impact on indoor and outdoor air quality.

    Modern wood stoves produce 2.5 grams or less of solid particulates per hour. Having secondary air tubes is a part of that process. Secondary air tubes help make wood stoves more efficient and overall more safe for everyone who uses them.
