Dual heating system

This is a wood stove on top of another heater—vented together—on top of a totally combustible parquet floor. You can't see it in the photo, but there is a sign nearby advertising this as a "high-efficiency economical heating system." There is so much wrong with this installation that all I could do was laugh.
