How hot does the room get when cremating a pet?
When cremating a pet, the temperature inside the room can reach up 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The furnaces used for cremation, also known as retorts, can vary in temperatures ranging from 1800-2000 degrees Fahrenheit. As one could imagine, the heat from the retort directly affects the temperature inside the room. The temperature inside is also affected by the outside temperature; if the outside temperature is cooler, it may decrease the room temperature some but not much. Some cremation facilities have over-sized vents to help circulate the air. The air vents also help the fumes from the cremation process go up and out of the cremation facility.
