HEATING WITH WOOD
The benefits of wood are undeniable. Those who source regional wood also make an important contribution to the renewable raw material. Timber heating ensures environmentally friendly energy production in the cycle of nature. How efficiently this raw material is used depends crucially on the type of heating.
All our natural tents are traditionally heated with wood and the methods used are mature and still work. Nevertheless, we always see new forms in our customers, as the fire in the middle, staged. Humans continue to develop and their demands for comfort increase. It is interesting to see the creativity with which our customers deal with this topic.
OUR HEATABLE NATURAL TENTS
Especially in the winter months, it is a great advantage if a tent can be heated with a fire. The yurt and the tepee are the two leading natural tents, which, thanks to their ingenious spatial concept, make it possible to live in them even in winter.
Much less known is the pioneer or snow trekker. It is an A-tent, which is equipped with a wood stove and is suitable for a mobile winter camp.
In the tepee, an open fire is still the most encountered, but again and again we meet amazing new variants. The Mexican oven on the far left has been used on a campsite to make it a bit easier for the guests to fire up. In the middle we find a stove with window. Probably one of the finest variants we have ever seen in a tepee. The wooden floor is also very luxurious. After a hot bath, the guest can relax comfortably in such a room with a view of the fire. The latest invention comes from "Carefree" and is visually very well done and is ideal for grilling.
In a yurt we find a variety of forms of heating. They are adapted to the needs of yurt residents accordingly. One who lives in a yurt will be aware of wood consumption, heat storage and cooking facilities. Meanwhile, there is even modern pellet stove with programmable heating time. This novel heating system is easy to use and, above all, very safe. The pellets are burnt in a dosed manner and the oven will never overheat. In addition, the smoke is filtered and there is no ash on the roof. The downside, they need a 230V power connection. The consumption is not higher than that of a light bulb, so the electricity could be covered with a small solar system.
This small rustic stove was developed explicitly for the Snowtrekker and makes camping even at minus temperatures an experience. If the tent is standing on a thick layer of snow, a reflector should be used under the stove. Otherwise, the snow melts underneath and he could fall. The stove heats up quite neat and on the surface can be cooked easily. The chimney pipe is held from the outside by a support. An ideal companion for the next adventure in the snow.
