Go For the Burn with the Xeoos Twinfire Wood Stove
Finding it difficult to shake the chill of winter? Wondering when our cantankerous climate might settle down and begin to show some consistency? Well, you and about six billion other people. As more and more convincing data comes in about the effects of global warming, we may just have to grow comfortable with weather patterns that bring 33 degrees and gale force winds one day and 79 and sunny the next (as we just experienced in Denver this mid-May weekend). A sure combatant against the new reality of global extremes? How about a super-efficient wood burner constructed of local materials like the Xeoos Twinfire.

The Xeoos Twinfire Woodstove Achieves up to 95% Efficiency
Manufactured by Specht Modular Furnace Systems, the Xeoos Twinfire aspires towards breeching the last gap in wood heating technology—the inefficiencies and pollution caused by particulate waste. If you’ve ever heated with wood, you’re aware of the black, sooty substance that not only coats chimney walls, but also increases the risk of chimney fires. By making use of this substance for fuel, Xeoos Twinfire kills the proverbial two birds with one stone.
The concept is simple. Rather than expelling the unburned fuel as dirty exhaust gas, the Xeoos Twinfire double chamber shuts off the upward flow, forcing unburned gases downward into the lower chamber. Therein the magic occurs, as super hot injected air ignites said gases, creating greater heat and greater efficiency, not to mention assuring cleaner operation.
The innovation is an environmental godsend, as Xeoos Twinfire creates more heat in a safer manner while eschewing the familiar bugaboos of soot, creosote, and ash. Top this off (or bottom it out, I should say) with the compelling aesthetic of stacked chambers—one of which shows the cinematic conjuration of a brilliant dancing flame without any wood—and Xeoos begins to seem an integral element of a long-term solution not only to the challenges posed by a changing climate, but the conundrum of dwindling resources too.
About the Manufacturer: The brief of Specht Modular Furnace Systems was elegant in its simplicity: “create a fire that was groundbreaking, that was both efficient and environmentally friendly.” It didn’t take long for the company to fulfill the mission. The Xeoos Twinfire Stove uses a double chamber technology to burn dirty exhaust gases that would ordinarily exit the flue as particulate matter. The result is a clean and green wood burner that virtually eliminates the pollution typically associated with wood burning.
