I have a St. Croix pellet stove. The original brick panels are showing signs of wear. They only have metal replacements which look cheap. Can I use ceramic refractory panels and cut them to fit? Will they stand up to the heat in a pellet stove?

Our Answer:

Ceramic refractory panels are only suitable for installation in a gas fireplace. Any biomass type of fireplace or stove will overheat the panels and cause them to deteriorate rapidly. You may be able to find a concrete refractory panel that is a suitable thickness to replace the original panels. How thick are the original panels in the stove? Please advise at your convenience.
