Environmentally sustainable heater Saviukumaja

How to build an environmentally sustainable heater

28–31 January 2016

How to plan, design, and build a highly efficient and environmentally sustainable heater? What kind of materials should be used for this purpose? These questions will be answered at a practical workshop in the farmhouse of Allikatamme, in the course of which we will work together to build a design heater with two benches. Basic 2.0 PRO, a special calculation program developed in Austria by Österreichische Kachelofenverband, will be used for the design of these heaters to ensure maximum efficiency, low emissions, and a small ecological footprint. The workshop is organised by Saviukumaja OÜ ning Tuli Ja Suits OÜ.

Saviukumaja OÜ is engaged in the development, production and sale of clay and lime plasters, compressed earth blocks (CEB), and other natural building materials. Saviukumaja’s clay plasters are the only clay plasters manufactured in Estonia and Northern Europe as a whole that have been tested based on the German standard for earth plasters (DIN 18947:2013-08). Based on the standard, the plasters belong to the higher strength class S II. We provide advisory services to owners of earth buildings as well as to anybody who wishes to renovate an old building or build a new one using natural building materials. We organise workshops for both amateurs and professionals.

Tuli Ja Suits OÜ is engaged in the design and building of environmentally sustainable heaters, in addition to providing chimney sweeping services. Some of the advantages of their heaters:
- High efficiency – starting from 80%
- Only high-quality fire clay and outer core materials
- Pure combustion with high temperatures
- Steady heat release along the entire length of the flue
- Low levels of pollution
- Combination of design and functionality
- A very precisely detailed flue forms an integrated system with the chimney, excluding the possibility of dew point temperatures in the chimney
- Warranty
- Reliable documentation
Conformity: EN15544 (heaters), ÖNORM B8310 (stoves), EN13384-1 (chimneys).
