At Himalayan, people have an intense desire to use efficient and clean-burning options. Most people ask: can wooden stoves be used indoors for heating?

No, simply, the wooden stoves are not designed for completely indoor usage. Because it generates impressive heat, and family safety is our first concern. Below are some reasons why indoor usage is not recommended for wood stoves:

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning: These stoves perform with exceptional fuel combustion efficiency. However, in a confined space, this may encourage poor combustion and carbon monoxide production which is colorless and odorless gas.
  • Fire Hazards: Being hot when burning, they can reach high temperatures due to its metal body. Improper location or indoor use poses significant fire danger.

While we understand that people want heaters that can do more than just heat one room at a time, nothing comes before security. Here is why HRS Stoves can be used for indoor heating.
