How to Choose a Chiminea For Heat
Choosing a chiminea with maximum heat output can be difficult as they are not designed to have a roaring fire like a fireplace. However, there are some steps you can take to ensure that you get the most heat from your chiminea:
- Choose a chiminea made of metal rather than clay. Metal conducts heat better, allowing the chiminea to burn hotter and radiate more heat. Metal chimineas are also less likely to crack when exposed to high heat.
- Choose a large chiminea. The larger the chiminea, the more available surface area there is to heat up and radiate heat.
- Choose a chiminea in a traditional shape. These were designed to have a large fire bowl that contains the fire but the bulbous shape also acts as an efficient enclosure where the heat rises and heats up the whole of the fire bowl.
