Get the Most Out of Your Wood Burning Stove with our Draw Collar Draft Inducer

What Is A Draw Collar Draft Inducer And Why Should You Have One?

Wood burning stoves have been around for 100’s of years. They are becoming increasingly popular again as a way to heat homes due to their efficiency and cost savings.

However, most wood burning stoves all have to combat cold air back drafting into the room. This is when smoke or cold air finds its way out of the stove and into your living space. This causes two problems.

1) Your furnace or other heat source has to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature.

2) If cold air is flowing into your home, it is going to make it harder to light a fire - the "draw" is affected. This results in either the fire getting smothered, or the smoke puffs into your house until enough heat is created to establish proper draw. 

If you are struggling with either of these problems, a Draw Collar Draft Inducer will resolve them.


The Draw Collar

The Draw Collar is a simple device that replaces a section of your wood stove pipe and uses a small amount of electricity to create heat. This keeps your air flowing in the right direction - to the outside of your home.

The Draw Collar has a thermal sensor that regulates the temperature of the stove pipe to maintain air flow in the stove pipe to help create a stronger draft. It creates an upward flow of air that feeds combustion and ensures that the burning wood releases optimal energy and heat, all the way up to complete burnout. This is essential for:

-not allowing cold air to enter the home through the stove

-effective heat output

-longer burn times

-better combustion

-preventing pollutants from entering the home/structure

-less creosote build up in the stove pipe

The Draw Collar has no moving parts, which means it is silent when running- unlike other draft inducers on the market.  It is obstruction free, making it easy to clean your stove pipe regularly.  It also comes with a satisfaction guarantee.
