Whenever the air temperature on the street, from -20 to +20 degrees centigrade, the furnace should be equally warm.To do this, use homemade furnace for a bath, which have built-up construction.This heater has a significantly higher heat transfer than conventional ovens.This device batch, the bricks are heated by burning firewood.The temperature can reach 600 degrees, but the guy still does not overheat.This design is quite simple and can be performed independently.

nother option - is to use a metal stove for a bath at the cottage or the site.It has the following advantages: does not crack and heat resistant, quite easily transported and installed, economical, protected by special pads, which safeguard against burns.However, despite all the advantages of a metal heater - not the best option for the steam room.

He quickly warms up, and the stones for the same time do not have time to warm up, and as a result, pairs becomes moist.All known methods for dealing with this lack of serious success.To select a homemade stove for a bath, you need to take into account their advantages and disadvantages.About a metal stove we talked, now we look at the pros and cons of brick the device.Advantages:

  • supports long warm (6-9 hours after firebox discontinued);
  • has greater fire safety, as compared with the metal;

From metal

stone oven with his own hands a number of options.The first way - it's building it "from scratch".In this case you will have to study construction technology, to consult with experts, and the expenditure of energy, time and money are considerable.However, this option is considered the most high-quality and correct for the pair.

second option - is to modify an existing metal furnace.In order to make it evenly warmed, it is necessary to impose a brick.Laying is done in a half-brick, and it should not touch the heater and be at a distance of 15 centimeters.The clutch is a hole to pour water on the stones and regulate heating.Such openings is two, since the lower air will flow and exits through the upper hole pairs.

Note! Such a system can not be compared with a full brick oven, but it is better and simple metal device.
