It is our pleasure to invite you to be a part of new things happening at Zaug Stoves.
Since we have not been manufacturing any stoves, we have been working hard on revising our stove to make it even more efficient and user friendly. We have been working side by side with manufacturers, architects and engineers to bring you a Zaug Stove this season!
To do this we are creating a Kickstarter campaign for the Zaug Stove and we will need your help. The time is now to get fired up about your sustainability. With enough support from loyal subscribers like you, we can finally begin selling stoves to you and other individuals that want new sustainable technology.
We will keep you informed about our Kickstarter and incentive packages as they are developed.
All of us here at Zaug Stoves want to thank each and every one of you for your support and patience during this period of growth. Please feel free to write us or send your feedback, we would love to hear from you.

Unique Air Flow
Zaug Stoves Co. has developed a new type of wood burning stove that completely revolutionizes our ideas about heating with wood. This new technology changes the common belief that hot air only travels upwards. In the Zaug stove, hot air travels down. With so much force, in fact, the hot air exiting the Zaug can travel horizontally for 25′ before needing to go up and outside. This means that the hot air within the exhaust duct can be kept inside the house, to be used as a secondary heat source, radiating more heat inside your house.
This unique air flow can be utilized in other ways. Most people enclose the exhaust duct with a brick, rock or clay material to capture and absorb the heat from the duct. This brick or clay structure is called a thermal mass. A thermal mass is a large object mass that retains and gives off heat, which stabilizes the temperature in the room from extreme fluctuations. Once a thermal mass is heated from the Zaug stove, it can give off heat for up to 24 hours, keeping your room warm and comfortable long after the stove has gone out.
Combine this use of waste heat, with the unique air flow direction, and you start to see why a Zaug mass heater is becoming a popular choice for wood stove heating.
Your new Zaug Altaire comes with a Neoceram fire resistant glass window on top of the feed tube. It’s a special type of heat resistant glass able to resist temperatures of up to 1200 degrees (F).
Changing this glass in your Zaug can be a little difficult if you don’t know the trick to it. Here’s a quick video tutorial that demonstrates the easiest way to install the fire resistant glass should it become damaged or broken.
Remember, this glass is not regular glass. It’s a special type of fire rated glass called Neoceram glass. Using any other type of glass voids out the warranty of your Zaug.

Brutal weather system threatens most of US with snow, ice, wind
Forecasters are calling for extreme temperatures across the US this week. As a result of wind and ice, many people will be without power. If you are heating your home from electrical power, maybe now is a good time to consider alternative options.
The Zaug Stove is an ideal solution to off-grid heating. It operates on less wood than a conventional wood stove and when used in combination with a thermal mass, can yield hours of warmth from burning very little wood.
The top plate has a flat surface that can be used for cooking and heating food. It reaches sustained temperatures of 450-800°F (232-426°C), allowing you to cook effortlessly without electricity.
Right now, we are offering both our models of Zaugs for one low price. The Standard Zaug, for cozy situations, and the new flagship Altaire, for loading up the wood and walking away. Follow this link to purchase quickly and easily through Paypal.
Don’t get caught in the cold weather without a Zaug.
Introducing a mass heating wood stove so advanced it sets the new standard for performance. At the heart of the new architecture is a freshly designed feed tube which delivers both unprecedented operation and a thrilling new look.
With a large viewing glass door, and nearly 20 square inches of new space added for loading wood convenience, the new Altaire achieves a greater than one-hour burn time. Altaire also offers a new cutting edge Return Air Port System (RAPS)TM expected from the world’s best mass heating stove.
STRONG, RIGID, AND HEAVY
The Altaire has a state-of-the-art, steel-intensive design. High-strength steel is used in key areas to enhance safety and contribute to overall performance. Sidewalls, fittings, and chambers are expertly joined for rigidity and strength. The benefit of longer life makes 3/8” steel a natural choice.
RAPS air port system keeps the feed tube cooler avoiding burn injuries
One piece door with glass pane for fire viewing
Larger Feed Tube allows more wood to be placed in the stove for a longer burn time
New 7 1/4″ burn chamber to allow more oxygen to flow through the burn chamber
Steel grate coverings on sidewalls for an exciting new look
For a limited time, the new Altaire can be purchased for $2100on our website. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a world class mass heating stove for this incredible introductory price.
The official first owner of the new Altaire had this to say:
“I recently purchased a [Standard] Zaug Stove to heat a 26 foot thermal mass that the owners of Zaug Stoves also built for me.
I was having some concerns regarding the burn time, called the owners, and was impressed with their willingness to produce a product that worked best for me.
In just a week and a half they delivered a different model of stove that is absolutely wonderful! Longer burn time without filling, the mass has heated up completely, stayed at 71.8 degrees during the night with a 2 hour fire!! …”

We were asked to come help pour the concrete for this new aquaponics greenhouse in Washington State, designed and built by Aquaponics Unlimited. The greenhouse will be using radiant floor heating and a Zaug for the heat source. The Zaug will aslo be providing heat for the fish tanks, and ambient heat in winter.
We can’t wait to see the finished product. Updates to follow. Thank you, Donovan with Aquaponics Unlimited, for allowing us to come help out.
This video is an educational animation showing the inner workings of a Zaug Stove. These stoves are unique because they use sticks and branches to generate large amounts of heat. The temperatures inside the stove, gets so hot that all the combustable gasses within the wood are burned off completely, leaving only steam as an exhaust byproduct. When combined with a thermal mass of clay or brick, the heat is captured and stored for hours inside the home, radiating heat slowly back in to the home. This means you can build a fire long enough to heat up your mass, then you can let the stove burn out and the mass will heat your home, shed, or greenhouse.
