For Homeowners and Masons
Masonry Heaters are clean-burning heating appliances that use the
renewable resource of wood for fuel. They are site built, with a core
that is hand-built or pre-cast. Masonry heaters use no electricity,
gas, fans, or duct work, and work by storing heat in a thermal mass,
then emitting radiant heat to the living space. Find out why Masonry
Heaters are the best heating option today! Masons, skilled homeowners,
and contractors interested in learning new skills will want to attend
this intensive training session.
The Heater Mason Development Program (HMED) has proven to be an
excellent tool to learn more about masonry heaters. The curriculum is
designed as an introductory course for masons or homeownwers who want to
know more about the heating appliance. This course may be used as a
"professional credential" good towards the Certified Heater
