HEATING WITH WOOD
The advantages of wood are undisputed. Anyone who purchases regional wood also makes an important contribution to the renewable raw material. Wood heating ensures environmentally friendly energy generation in the natural cycle. How efficiently this raw material is used depends largely on the type of heating.
All of our natural tents are traditionally heated with wood and the methods used are mature and still work. Nevertheless, we always see new forms with our customers, such as the fire in the middle, is 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 tipi are the two leading natural tents that make it possible to live in them even in winter thanks to their ingenious space concept.
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 tipi, an open fire is still the most common, but we always come across astonishing new variations. The Mexican stove on the far left was used on a campsite to make it a little easier for guests to fire. In the middle we find an oven with a viewing window. Probably one of the finest variants that we have ever seen in a tipi. 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 the most diverse forms of heating options. They are adapted to the needs of the yurt residents. One who lives in a yurt will pay attention to wood consumption, heat storage and cooking facilities. There are now even modern pellet stoves with programmable heating times. This new heating system can be operated without great effort and, above all, very safe. The pellets are burned in doses and the stove will never overheat. In addition, the smoke is filtered and no ash falls on the roof. The disadvantage is that they need a 230V power connection. The consumption is not higher than that of a light bulb, so the electricity could be covered by a small solar system.
This little rustic stove was developed specifically for the Snowtrekker and makes camping an experience even at sub-zero temperatures. If the tent is on a thick layer of snow, a reflector should be used under the stove. Otherwise the snow melts underneath and it could sink. The oven heats up pretty well and you can cook on the surface without any problems. The chimney pipe is held from the outside by a support. An ideal companion for the next adventure in the snow.
