Some people think it may be unnecessary to install this type of device, but they would be wrong. There are many reasons why you should install a thermometer in your chimney.

If your fire is always burning too hot, you are wasting precious money on fuel. Even more, when your fire is burning too hot, your unit will begin to degrade. By using a thermometer to maintain the proper temperature, you are extending the life of your chimney. This will prevent you from having to replace your woodstove prematurely, and protect the investment you have made.
Being able to control the heat level of your woodstove also allows you to control its performance. By having a woodstove chimney thermometer, you minimize and control the smoke emissions from your chimney, thus, decreasing the air pollution level.
Most importantly, the safety of your family is always assured if you have a woodstove chimney thermometer. With this, you can control the level of heat of the wood you are burning. If your chimney fire gets too hot, you could easily have a fire start in your home.
