Inspired from fire

Choosing the fireplace is very important! Fireplace shall ennoble your home or office, contributes greatly to the homely atmosphere and ensures a very pleasant warmth.

In order to make the right choice, it is essential to know a number of things!

A fireplace is used for both, as decorative-architectural element and as element for heating the area as well.

Means stand alone fireplaces. They do not require special constructions, can be moved and the installation is very fast and very cheap.

In order to calculate the power required you shall keep in mind that in order to heat a cubic meter there are required between 25 and 180 watts depending on several factors: exposure, insulation, carpentry, external temperature, wind speed, weather, all of which are necessary for comfort to be achieved from the point of view of heat..

      In order to calculate the needed amount of fuel they are used the following approximate data:

  • Calorific output/ caloricity of dry wood - from 3 to 4 kWh/kg;
  • Calorific output / caloricity of charcoal - from 6 to 7 kWh/kg;
Loss by evaporation of water from wet fuel from 1 to 1.5 kWh / kg.

A classic fireplace requires a firebox, decoration, insulated building materials and chimney connector . A fireplace stove in addition to the product itself requires only the chimney connector.

All wood products require for operation a chimney of 130 mm and 250 mm. In the technical specifications it is exactly stated what type of chimney is required for each firebox. The chimney can be made of brick, ceramic material, stainless steel and shall have a minimum height of 6-7m.

Use only wood from natural sources without other impregnated chemicals or briquettes without adhesives.
It is important the wood to be dry, meaning to have it stored at least two years prior in a dry and ventilated place.
Why do not use wet wood?  
The wood moisture decreases the calorific output. The majority of calorific output is used to evaporate water, the rest being insufficient to provide heating.
Water vapor decreases combustion temperature and contributes to the formation of soot that accumulates and hardens into a thick layer on the walls of combustion chamber, ceramics, pipes, chimney, etc.
Air pollution is increasing due to the fact the gases leaves the combustion chamber unburned.

Preparation and lighting the fire:

  1. Before  lighting the fire remove the ashes.
  2. Open the primary air and flue gas vents
  3. Place two pieces of wood parallel to the edges of the grate
  4. Crumple a piece of newspaper and place it between the two wood pieces. Do not use glossy or impregnated paper
  5. Onto the piece of paper place kindling and small pieces of softwood. Above this to place a few pieces of thin wood
  6. Light up/ignite the paper, when the flame becomes powerful, close the inspection door
  7. Leave the primary air holes open until the flames comprise the whole combustion chamber

The aim is to light the fire with only one match, without any other operations and without continually added wood and paper.

Signs for proper combustion:

  1. The burning must occur in the presence of flames until the wood becomes embers.The aim is smoldering without smoke.
  2. The bricks in the combustion chamber (if any) must be colored yellow-brown, not black
  3. The wood dry light up immediately, if there is enough air.
  4. The window of the combustion chamber(if any) must remain clean.
  5. Gases that exit on chimney must be transparent or white. Gray smoke indicates wrong burning.

Do not burn:
- household waste
- painted or glued softwood
- plywood or conglomerate (OSB)
- railway sleepers
