Thermal mass? No. however most stoves DO have actually a brick floor to keep from burning through. The heat of the coals best on the steel oven floor year ~ year degradation it; the bricks defend the floor.

This stove has no fire bricks on the floor. Have to I add fire brick come the floor? and also does it need some kind of steel grate favor you have actually in a fireplace - to hold the wood? or do I just chunk the lumber in over there and set it ~ above fire? It"s been fifteen years because I"ve had actually a wood stove. I don"t remember much
Yep, put firebrick on the floor. However no need for a grate. The stove should be designed so that air it s okay to the wood just fine.

I looked at at the very least 100 offered stoves this year and also finally discovered the one I can afford and also wanted. I witnessed NONE that had actually firebrick just on the floor. Most all were simply steel. (and the bricks were no removed). Mine Wood furnace has an waiting gap totally around the fire chamber. It has Firebricks on all sides. Even the back. But None top top the Floor. The is where my fresh air come in and likewise ashes loss thru the floor and also go into my Ash Chamber. I pull the end the ash drawer which is far below my floor grid. The optimal of my fire crate has another protective welded panel and also then two an ext walls. Hot air blows all about the 2nd wall and out into duct occupational which is far over the furnace. Ns really view the require for the fire brick on the sides and back. Those coals get really hot and also protect the stole walls. ns would put firebrick on all 3 sides simply for protection, If you can. Just my opinion. Good Luck
