Default Re: Additional insulation for modular ovens

..that doesn't make sense to me
I think that's why I have a question about it.

I'm sorry. I was under the impression that the FB rep cruises the forum. I will call and ask.....

FOLLOWUP: The answer from FB was that while additional insulation is not "necessary", it is okay to add insulation, much like people do with the vermiculite in the outdoor enclosures. The assumption, of course, is that the added insulation is not "combustible". I think mineral wool qualifies as non-combustible.

Their concern was that for indoor installation, we used the proper multi-wall venting pipe, which we have. I have now fired the oven as hot as I dare (outside dome temps of 950F) and the temps outside of the factory-supplied insulation don't really get above 120F. I feel pretty good about adding insulation in the hope it will hold the heat in even more.

It is always prudent to check both code and manufacturers recommendations for non standard installation, we agree on that.
