This hot water is stored in the reservoir until a thermostat signals a pump to send the hot water to heat transfer devices (radiators, baseboards, forced air, hydronic floor heat, etc.) to heat the air and domestic hot water in homes or busiesses. Standard Water Stoves (90% of the market) Water Reservoir - 50 to 200 gallons Fire Requirements - continuous fire which smolders until the heat is demanded  Wood Burning Efficiency - 50% to 70% Pollutants Emitted - high to excessive Premium Water Stoves (10% of the market) Water Reservoir - 700 to 2,000 gallons Fire Requirements - short hot fire (1 to 3 hours at 2,000 to 3,000 degrees) (One short hot fire can generate up to 5 days worth of heat) Wood Burning Efficiency - 90% + Pollutants Emitted - negligible READ MORE...
