Why waste the heat from your solid fuel fireplaces?

If you have had enough with normal fireplaces and all that heat going up the chimney now is the time to think differently and do something new to greatly improve the efficiency of the open fireplace in your house. Poor heat emission from the fireplace is common  with the majority of the heat being wasted but there wasn’t any effective substitute to deal with this frustrating situation until EcoGrate made its market launch in the year 2013.

This is considered as the best appliance for solid fuel fireplaces so far and the credit must go to the company that has designed and developed the product. Celtic Product Development Ltd. is behind the smart engineering of this grate and they have innovated this effective appliance for the sole purpose of improving the performance and heat emission from the fireplace.

EcoGrate Home Heating Product

This exclusive product is constructed with quality cast iron and that plays a very important role in generating more heat from the fireplace. The 12 VDC tangential fan which is thermostatically controlled,  draws in the cold air from the room, this cold air travels through the cast iron manifold and is super heated. The cast iron absorbs the heat from the fire and emits the cold air 6-8 times hotter air back into the room space plus you also get what you normally would get from the open fire which is radiated heat. Simple, by installing EcoGrate you get radiated and convected heat leading to an extremely efficient open fireplace. And if you take a look at the fuel usage of this appliance, this is even more interesting and effective.

Any standard open fireplace utilizes a very poor percentage of the available heat from the solid fuel which is burning in the fireplace. Most open fires are only 20% efficient with the remaining 80% being evicted into the outside atmosphere through the chimney as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) while installing EcoGrate will change the picture significantly. The EcoGrate uses half the amount of solid fuel that you would normally burn as the fuel is being utilized to it’s full potential and the optimum amount of heat is being kept in the room.Thus, people can save large amounts of money year after year on expensive solid fuel costs while enjoying greater warmth in the room as well.

Installing EcoGrate into the fireplace dramatically turns up the heat

Now take a look at the installation of this product. The product comes with probably the easiest method of installation ever. It fits into any standard 16” or larger fireplaces and the best part is that users don’t need to make any alteration to the original fireplace. It’s easy and it’s simple. Most people can do it by their own and they don’t need to pay any extra expenses for the services of  a qualified fitter. It takes just a few minutes to get installed into the open fireplace and when it’s not being used, people can simply remove it easily from the solid fuel fireplace.

It is simply unbelievable that so many different types of features are available with this small product and the EcoGrate keeps the room heated evenly so you don’t need to sit right beside the fireplace to enjoy the heat. So many features in just one product and installing this can change how you spend this winter entirely. Having so many beneficial attributes has won so many awards for this product and the demand of EcoGrate is really rising in the entire UK.

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.

EcoGrate is a wonderful invention of CPD Ltd.

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.

Buy EcoGrate and enjoy expected heat output.

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!
