Radiant (accumulation) fireplace
It spreads heat evenly in all directions from the source. The air is not heated directly from the source, but indirectly through objects that are heated primarily. The air heated in this way creates a pleasant atmosphere and has thermal inertia, ie it absorbs heat and gradually releases it.
Hot air fireplace
It heats the air in the room directly on the basis of the flow. Not recommended for smaller single-family homes or premises. The air heated directly is dry, creating heat zones, so it does not distribute heat evenly. A hot air fireplace is often used in cottages because it heats up the space quickly, unlike a storage fireplace, which needs some time to warm up. If necessary, we can make a combination of storage and hot air fireplace where you can use the positive features of both types.
Would you like to enjoy the flame in the fireplace but without worries such as adding wood, storing it, cleaning it and so on? So gas fireplaces are tailor-made for you. These gas fireplaces are controlled by remote control, which also serves for automatic temperature control. Heating in a gas fireplace is incomparably more comfortable and time-saving when creating the same atmosphere and home comfort that wood-burning fireplaces bring. In addition to the comfort that these fireplaces bring, it is important to note that the atmosphere brought by the fire in the wood fireplace is maintained by the gas fireplace.
Gas fireplace inserts are, with their exclusivity, functionality, reliability and calorific value, comparable to wood fireplace inserts. The only difference is in the type of fuel, in the comfort of heating and maintaining the fire.
Hot water fireplace
Hot water fireplaces not only heat the spaces around the fireplace, but also dissipate heat and store (accumulate) it in the so-called storage vessel. From there, it can be used efficiently in the central heating of your house.
You save twice:
- you do not overheat the space in which there is a fireplace
- most of the heat produced from the fireplace is later used for heating the whole house and producing DHW, even if you don't even smoke in the fireplace at that time!
We also call this modern technology alternative heating. It is highly efficient and environmentally friendly!
Accumulation radiant fireplace made of fireclay
Its heat transfer function is based on the radiation principle. For the first three to four hours of burning, the fireplace is charged with the thermal energy produced, which it then gradually transfers to its surroundings. It is suitable for heating low-energy buildings.
- It is able to transfer the generated thermal energy evenly over a long period of time.
- With a suitable location, it is possible to heat the adjoining rooms using radiant panels.
- It is most often designed for about three hours of combustion and then about six hours of radiation (for example overnight).
- It does not swirl dust in the room and creates a pleasant radiant heat.
- The mantle of the fireplace is heated to a pleasant temperature for several hours after burning.
We will be happy to help you choose the right type of fireplace.
It all depends on your ideas, needs and conditions. In principle, anything is possible. We will create a unique and safe fireplace for you, which will be not only a beautiful addition to the house but also a full-fledged heat source that will cover the house's heat loss in winter.
