furnace cast iron bath does not require close attention and burdensome for the owner of careful maintenance.Planned "bath permutation"?The oven does not become a hindrance (despite the obvious heaviness) - it can be removed, and then place in a new location.The device carries great transportation.
cast iron stove can become a universal unit, and cut at the same time heating the steam and water for a shower.How does it look in practice?Shall be connected to the water heater, which, in turn, is connected to the water tank.This decision is not only practical but also economical.
All types of furnace designs for his good, no question about it.But what makes cast-iron wood-burning oven for baths always attractive to the buyer?After all, tradition.Many people simply can not imagine a bathhouse without cod wood and flames in the firebox.It's hard not to agree that the "electric alternative" will not be able to cause a storm of sincere emotion of entertainment.

Compare with brick units ↑
How to start a comparison?Naturally, since the working efficiency.Cast iron has good thermal conductivity, brick - not really.This is the first significant advantage.
iron are not afraid of sharp temperature fluctuations, which is not the brick.In winter, if the room long fired brick may begin to crumble: to restore the efficiency of such an oven would have to see a specialist ("fresh" financial expenses).With iron this situation simply can not happen.
rate of warming the room. iron construction lead in this matter, because the brick requires very thorough warm up before starting to give off heat to the environment.
Dimensions footprint. where everything is clear, the pros and cons, as they say, is obvious.Cast iron stove more "refined" compact.
confounding factors. brick oven requires a separate foundation under it.It would take again more funds, certain labor costs, time.Cast iron stove - a tool for the long-awaited steam as soon as possible on the "simplified" script.
iron and steel units: distinction ↑
Steel furnace, perhaps, the main competitors of iron.Yes, on the one hand - steel durable and reliable, but on the other - noticeably loses cast iron for long service life.However, a lot depends on technology, the thickness of the material.But, usually cast iron is much longer any peers in the market.
Have these materials in common - the susceptibility to corrosion.Cast iron is naturally more resistant.The furnace of it can survive two steel.At the same time it is not necessary to paint.Well, except that for aesthetic reasons.

Brick Oven safe as new.But set it in your bath is clearly not for a year!Over time, the mortar, and the material will begin to slowly crumble.If the room in severe frosts will not be heated, "destruction" will be active.Cracks increase the risk of breakthrough sparks that can cause an extremely serious incident - a fire.
Cast iron does not crack even from extreme heat - therefore remains fireproof throughout life.
furnace cast iron interior ↑
oven must not be just a source of heat in the bath, but also worthy of its decoration.To say that the cast iron unit looks "prettier" the others can not.Painted samples of various materials look like "twins" - at first glance, that "this steel", but "is cast" is not easy.
but also a matter of aesthetics cast-iron stove with confidence wins: keeps its good looks, it will be able to last much longer than the "main competitor".
Its doors are not prone to distortions and subsidence, which is also important.
