From antiquity to the present day, wood is used as a fuel for the heating of homes, either as a basic and continuous way of heating or as decorative and occasional with the use of a fireplace.
The evolution of technology and science has brought up heating devices that finally provide solutions to logistical problems associated with traditional heating methods. These appliances are using as a source of energy, other than traditional wood, oil, electricity and gas, and require less effort to warm our home.
The ecological consciousness that has been cultivated over the years requires environmentally friendly heaters using clean sources such as sun and natural gas. Modern solutions now on the shelves are more efficient and therefore more cost-effective, thus achieving a triple benefit:
- Environmental protection,
- High performance, and of course
- Economy for the consumer (which is a key criterion nowadays).
What you need to know about energy efficient fireplaces
Modern solutions in the fireplace industry now cover most of the heating needs and propose energy efficient stoves that use wood, biomass (pellets), LPG or natural gas as fuel.
The energy fireplaces, thanks to their construction and operation, offer a more uniform distribution of heat, they provide energy efficiency close to 80% compared to 20-25% of the classic fireplaces, and thanks to the controlled airflow they also make economy in fuel.
These new heaters can be placed (depending on their size and capabilities) independently in any room of the house, get connected to the existing heating system (e.g. radiators), or upgrade the existing fireplace in the form of a bonnet or cassette insert.
Energy efficient fireplaces and stoves available in the market can be used to heat from a single room to a block of flats. The selection and placement of the fireplace can be done by experienced professionals who will suggest the most appropriate solution for your case.
Higher aesthetic value
From an architectural point of view, the energy efficient fireplace -in addition to being a source of heating- is an element of interior decoration, giving warmth to your home, but also a reason for relaxation and concentration of your family and friends around it to enjoy a glass of wine and a baked treat. It is no coincidence that some models of the market are accompanied by barbecue equipment or even a separate oven!
Just like traditional fireplaces, energy efficient ones can be decorated externally to get the aesthetics we want. Natural materials such as marble, limestone, granite, wood, decorative bricks, natural stones etc. can be used in the fireplace’s lining.
