The fireplace was for several years simply a decorative element for the living space. However, after the increase in the price of oil, the fireplace took on a primary or even unique role as a source of thermal energy. The question is which type of fireplace suits us. Traditional or energy? The aim is to have a warm place during the winter, saving fuel and money at the same time.
For those who do not know…
- the energy fireplace provides the warmth of the fireplace but can cover much more square footage than the traditional one, which heats only the space in which it radiates
- it can can be connected to the existing heating system so as to heat the whole house.
- with the help of the protective glass that the air always remains warm and can not leave the space of the house. Of course, this glass also helps to avoid fire or bad smell from the burnt wood.
- It is designed to meet the needs of each space, ie we can vary the amount of oxygen that will enter it, so in this way we control the amount of wood.
