Enjoy increased heat emission from the fireplace with EcoGrate

Now you can greatly increase the performance of your open fireplace in an inexpensive way! You probably were looking for a way since most people realise the majority of the heat from the fuel they are burning goes up the chimney. In actual fact 80% of the heat is wasted which is extremely costly! Poor heat emission from the fireplace isn’t able to keep the sitting room warm enough even if you are piling loads of coal into the fire, these are the reasons, you should install an Eco Grate!

Now what is an EcoGrate and how does it perform?
It’s an award-winning complete unit with it’s own grate and ashpan that is designed and developed by Celtic Product Development Ltd., an Irish company. The best trait about this EcoGrate is its smart engineering. It is constructed with quality cast iron and this multiplies its performance by the use of a manifold that is put into the fireplace. Basically, the fireplace draws the cold air from the room and this is what takes the majority of the heat up the chimney. Whereas, an Eco Grate installed into the fireplace performs differently – the cold air from the room is purposefully drawn in by the 12 VDC tangential fan and this cool air travels through the cast iron manifold and is super heated from the fuel being burned in the fire and is then emitted super hot back into the room space. This surprisingly results into 6-8 times better heat emission into the room because you are now getting convected and radiated heat from the fire. An ordinary fireplace only gives radiated heat making it so much less efficient.

Improve the performance of your fireplace

Aside from that, it reduces the absorption by the chimney significantly and this increases the heat emission. When it comes to solid fuel, a fireplace that has EcoGrate installed consumes so much fuel since it is being utilized to the maximum potential of it. When you improve the fuel utilization, you certainly make good savings on fuel costs! Independent studies have proven that users can recoup the primary investment for the grate within around 6-8 months of using it.
It’s already winter and now is the best time to pay attention to the performance of the fireplace. People often opt for stoves or electric/gas fires but these are not suitable options for everyone as they can be quite costly to install and run each winter. If people are thinking of putting in a stove they might not get the heat they think or save on fuel. On the contrary, EcoGrate offers great savings on fuel costs and is definitely a real, efficient open fire. . This grate offers a nominal heat output of 4.85 kw which stands brilliant for an open fire. And the best thing about this grate is its design. You can install EcoGrate into any standard 16” or larger fireplace quite easily and without any hassle. You don’t even need to pay anything for installation. So, install this Gastec, UK approved product in your fireplace and keep warm and cosy this winter.
