What is the most efficient wood burning fireplace?
One of the negatives of conventional wood fireplaces is that they are less energy efficient, converting just about 15% of the wood’s energy into heat. One of the reasons for this is that the standard design fireplace tends to send too much of heated air, up the chimney instead of drawing outside air for better combustion. Energy efficient fireplaces are designed to pull in outdoor air for combustion, and circulate room air around the firebox to extract as much useable heat as possible. Due to this they are able to achieve energy rating of more than 75%. As an off-shoot, they are also less polluting than standard fireplaces.
Fireplace inserts are sealed metal boxes designed to fit inside the existing fireplace opening. By their efficient use of outside air (for combustion purposes) and optimal circulation of warm air inside, they are able to achieve energy efficiency levels of more than 80%.
Glassdoors are helpful in limiting the amount of room air that is sucked into the fireplace. Glassdoors are particularly useful when the fireplace has to burn all night long (when you have to leave the damper open)
Master Fireplaces (https://masterfireplaces.in) has different fireplace models suited for different purposes. Our wood stoves are super efficient in heating and slow burning for controlled heat dissipation. Wood stoves are simple to install and fine for heating up small spaces (upto 220 sq.m) Want more? What’s your take? Modern or traditional?
For better energy efficiency, our glass fronted inserts with air wash technology ensures that you always have a clear view of the flame.
Our Open Wood burning fireplace model (Jet master) is known for the comfort and warmth. The Cool air that is drawn into the Jet master’s heating chamber, is then vented out as a consistent stream of hot air. The Jetmaster does let smoke into the room.
