What is the energy fireplace?

The energy fireplace is a modern closed-type fireplace, which has certified high combustion efficiency and therefore low fuel consumption, ie firewood.

In standard open fireplaces, found in most homes, wood burning is incomplete, with a yield rate typically approaching 20%. As a result, much of the heat that our fuel could produce is lost. On the contrary, in the most modern and quality energy fireplaces, the efficiency of combustion reaches or exceeds 75%, which means that our fuel, ie wood, we receive a large part of the energy it can yield as heat in our area, and a much smaller percentage is left unused compared to an old-style fireplace.

This practically means that the energy fireplace can warm up our space much more efficiently, with a significant fuel economy. If you take into account that the fuel used for energy fireplaces (such as firewood) is already very economical compared to other fuels such as oil or gas, or the current consumed by some heating devices, you understand that a quality fireplace, is an excellent heating solution combining warmth and economy.

How can energy fireplaces warm an entire place?

Energy fireplaces have the ability to deliver heat to our home in different ways, meeting different needs and requirements. The so-called air energy fireplaces heat and deliver warm air to our premises, either with a physical or mechanically controlled motorized circulation. Hydro fireplaces on the other hand can heat a whole house by heating radiators in the house.
