What wins so much appreciation for EcoGrate as the best fireplace appliance?
So much to talk about EcoGrate and its functionality! We know that there are issues with open fireplaces regarding poor heat from them and the majority of the heat going up the chimney . Basically, the open fires burns so much solid the fuel and produces minimal heat while on the contrary; an EcoGrate installed into the fireplace burns half the amount fuel and produces up to four times better radiated and convected heat. Let’s take a tour to what is EcoGrate and how it works.
What is EcoGrate?
This is a miraculous invention by Celtic Product Development Ltd. The excellent construction of the product which is made of quality cast iron absorbs the heat from the fuel you are burning and emits two types of heat, radiated and convected making your open fire so much more efficient. In a normal fireplace, the cold air from the room is naturally drawn towards the fire and unfortunately, takes most of the heat (around 80%) up the chimney and is lost ultimately. Resulting in very poor heat emission from the open fire and an equally poor percentage of solid fuel is utilized efficiently. But when you have an EcoGrate installed in your fireplace, it purposefully draws the cold air in and it then travels through the cast iron manifold and gets super heated from the fuel that is burning and as a result of which, 6-8 times hotter air is emitted evenly into the room. So, you enjoy real warmth from the open fire and you no longer have to sit right beside the fire to feel the heat.
Let’s now talk about its Technical Specifications
In order to improve the heat emission from the open fire, various fireplace appliances are used some of which are stoves, electric/gas fires etc. but most of those are quite costly to maintain mainly in the winter when temperatures drop significantly. There are sacrifices you will have to make! Your open fire will be no more and you may not save as much money or get as much heat as you think! Now, you don’t need to use any of those because the EcoGrate is so efficient and gives out a minimum heat output of 4.85 kW whilst halving your solid fuel costs. One of the main benefits with the EcoGrate is that there is no alteration to your existing fireplace and no expensive flue liners to be fitted. CPD Ltd. have designed the EcoGrate so it will fit into any standard 16″ or larger fireplace and it doesn’t affect any type of fireplace surround. And what entices people most is that they don’t need to spend anything for the installation. It’s easy, simple and most importantly, can be done without anyone’s help. Having so many qualities in one product is simply superb and with EcoGrate, it’s fact.
The EcoGrate has a three year warranty on the grate itself – and if you manage to burn it out in the three years they will actually give you a reward! it is made from a high nickle content and designed not to burn out like ordinary grates do and there is a five year warranty on the complete unit. The EcoGrate also comes with it’s own ash pan which is very convenient when removing the ashes. On account of having so much qualities and the brilliant heat from the EcoGrate, the product won the prestigious “Hearth & Home Show” award as Alternative Fuel Appliance of the Year 2013 and many other awards as well.
