Transform your fireplace and make it more efficient
Winter is in full swing. Chilling weather and snowfall has already cast its spell. It’s time that we start thinking about the best way to stay warm. Is the fireplace in your home giving you enough warmth? Are you totally winter protected in your home? If the answers to these questions are yes then re think. I think you are missing out on something. Is the heat, generated from your fire place giving you absolute warmth? No I do not think it is! as most open fireplaces are only 20% efficient with the remaining heat being lost up the chimney. But if you use EcoGrate in your open fireplace, you will come across a completely different picture altogether.
This super grate is an absolutely perfect perfect for most open fireplaces that are 16″ or larger. An Irish company called, Celtic Product Development Ltd., have developed this product which is very cleverly engineered. The EcoGrate was launched into the market in 2013 and from then on it has really taken everyone by surprise with its absolutely fantastic technical attributes. Up until now there was no alternative product to increase the efficiency of an open fire whilst keeping the ambiance of the open fire. There are alternatives like fitting a stove but you no longer have the ambiance of the open and do you really get that much more heat?. With EcoGrate due to its unmatchable qualities people really see the benefits and the uniqueness of this product and most people who see the EcoGrate working are installing this appliance into their fireplaces straight away.
EcoGrate is a complete quality cast iron product which comes with its own grate and ashpan and simply sits into the fireplace recess. This product is perfectly safe, tested and approved by Gastec in the UK. The independent testing that has been carried out proves that the EcoGrate gives out a minimum heat output of 4.85 kW if you have a basic fire on, this is phenomenal heat considering you still have all the benefits of an open fire. The EcoGrate has won many awards including the alternative fuel appliance of the year award at the Hearth and Home Show in the UK which shows this product is highly regarded and a brilliant alternative to fitting a stove.
Now let’s find out how this grate is eco friendly or why should you make use of this eco product. We are all aware of the fact that open fireplaces use so much solid fuel in trying to heat the room and as most of the heat is wasted up the chimney this causes so much CO2 emissions being released into the environment. Now when EcoGrate is put into your fireplace you will see that the heat generated is giving out up to four times more heat than you generally would get from the fireplace. As you are getting so much more heat, you burn at least half the amount of solid fuel that you would normally burn leading to a huge reduction in CO2 emissions thus leading to a cleaner, greener environment for us all to live in…The EcoGrate is multi fuel but burning smoke less coal will also contribute to less harmful emissions being put into our environment.
The EcoGrate works with the assistance of a 12VDC fan which is incorporated into the unit. When the fire reaches a certain temperature the fan comes on automatically and draws in the cold air from the room space. As the product is all cast iron and has a manifold it absorbs the heat from the fuel being burned, once this cold air travels through the manifold it is super heated and then emitted back into the room space up to four times hotter. By installing an EcoGrate you get two types of heat convected and radiated, with an ordinary fire you only get radiated heat! The heat is emitted evenly back into the room space so no more having to sit right beside the fire to stay warm. Why waste the heat? I am sure that you are eager to install it into your fire place.
Now if you are thinking about the cost, then let me tell you to relax! Basically EcoGrate is cost efficient. As you will not only enjoy the heat that is generated by the EcoGrate, it actually saves fuel and a lot of your hard earned money. After a month of its installation when you will go to compare the money spent on it you will find you have done a profitable deal by saving so much on expensive solid fuel costs.
Now let me compress my words and make you recapitulate whatever I have already told:
- EcoGrate is a cost efficient product.
- It fits into all standard 16” or larger fire places.
- The heat generated from the EcoGrate is distributed evenly in every corner of the room.
- It is checked and approved by Gastec
- There are no expensive fitting costs involved
So you know how this product works and there is no doubt that it will keep your room warm throughout the winter. This Eco product is also brilliant for our environment and saves you a fortune on fuel costs!
