Welcome to Temp-Cast!

Our fully-modular core kits with EPA-audited results have allowed us to sell thousands of units across North America, the UK, and Australia.

You may have heard these unique heaters referred to as masonry stoves or Russian stoves – they are also known as Russian heaters, German tiled stoves (kachelöfen and grundöfen), Finnish masonry stoves or Finnish contra-flow fireplaces. This site is a comprehensive guide to the masonry heater concept in general, including the many benefits of masonry heating such as unmatched performance, improved indoor air quality, healthy heating and reduced environmental impact. We are proud to introduce you to the Temp-Cast family of affordable, fully modular wood-fired masonry heaters – fireplaces that work!

Take Comfort In Our Difference.

  • Our core kit is fully numbered and keyed, allowing for a simply dry-fit assembly within 20 minutes. This allows the masons to familiarize themselves with the installation. The actual installation takes 4-6 hours with the confidence of the simple assembly process.
  • From the thousands of heaters shipped, we have simplified the installation to the point that 15% of our market are DIYers.
  • Because we don’t travel doing installations, we are always available to assist with any questions or design details.
