It is very important to burn wood that is dry and clean. It is possible to get a moisture tester that will assist you with this procedure. Natural wood types are most suitable for making fire in a stove. Hardwood such as beech, oak or birch has high energy values and is therefore highly suitable for fires in fireplace systems. It burns more steadily and generates fewer burning sounds than softwood. Ensure that your firewood is sufficiently dry and does not exceed a maximum residual moisture of 20%. This is the only way to ensure a clean fire with high energy yield.
Our product range have been certified and safety tested to a variety of chimneys that are available in the market. There are set standards on the height and type of installation what will be specified by your local authorities/ specialized dealers.
The efficiency of a fireplace system describes the conversion of energy introduced by the fuel into usable heating energy. To put it simply: The higher the efficiency, the more heat you will get.
The combustion residue generated during the combustion process in a fireplace system may settle on the glass. To avoid this, Spartherm designs fireplace systems so that the glasses remain as soot-free as possible. The air wash guides pre-heated secondary air along the interior of the glass to generate a permanent airflow that will keep the glass clean.
While you can feel radiation heat directly on your body as soon as you get close to the fireplace, convection heat will create a cosy warmth by evenly heating the room air. The convection heat is generated through permanent circulation of the room air. Cooler air enters the stove from the bottom and moves past the combustion chamber. The air heated by this process exits the system at the top and heats the surrounding room. Materials such as soap stone, sandstone or natural stone increase the continuous heat exchange for a longer time after the fire has extinguished.
Spartherm fireplace systems are equipped with numerous safety features to let you enjoy your fire without worry. Yet another aspect of safety: Spartherm products are exclusively available through qualified specialist dealers. Only reliable consulting by our specialist dealers on site will give you the planning certainty for proper installation. Spartherm has also done all the required safety testing that is required by law in the market.
