Wood is one of the cheapest and eco-friendly fuels when it comes to heating appliances. Now, imagine being able to slow down the consumption of this economical energy source, being able to extend its lifespan and your pocket’s depth even further?! With a closed combustion fireplace from Progress Lighting & Fires you can! But what exactly is it?
A closed combustion fireplace has a firebox that allows you to control the amount of air that enters the fireplace. This gives you the ability to choose the rate of fuel consumption and level of heat your fireplace emits. Get the temperature just right so you don’t break a sweat or feel a draft ever again! Progress Lighting & Fires supplies standard makes in steel or cast iron that burn either wood or coal.
Now, how do these fireplaces compare to what has been tried and tested for centuries – the traditional open fireplace? If you’re a hopeless romantic who gets mesmerized by the snap, crackle and pop, then the old-school fireplace will do just fine. The more practical you knows that there is more to a fireplace than mere ambiance. How about safety, convenience, cost and efficiency? You can have the best of both worlds with a closed combustion fireplace from Progress Lighting & Fires.
Closed combustion fireplaces are more efficient producing twice the amount of heat of an open fireplace. This is because traditional fireplaces are fitted with chimneys through which as much as 80% of heat is lost. Closed combustion fireplaces also use 66% less wood than an open fireplace. This is due to your controlling the air and enabling the wood to burn longer.
