For the proper operation of our fireplace we follow the following necessary steps:

  • We light our fireplace within 5 days after its installation. During the first few uses, there may be odors due to the burning of paints and grouting materials.
  • Always light the fireplace progressively to avoid cracking due to large temperature differences.
  • Use wood as the sole fuel and avoid throwing any other material.
  • We never extinguish the fire with water!

The energy fireplaces are made of steel on the outside and cast iron plates on the inside with 3 chambers for the circulation of hot air. In these cookers it is necessary to use a fan, dimmer, thermostat and to supply cold air from the outside environment through hoses. These fireplaces channel the air heated in the chambers into your room through the louvers. It is correct to operate them with the door closed in order for them to perform to their full potential. This ensures you save more on wood and the alternative fuel used to heat your home (oil, gas, etc.). These fireplaces offer you the possibility of transferring hot air to another room in the house by using an air duct.

The boiler fireplaces are made of steel and are connected to the central heating installation, since they have the ability to heat water in the tank located around the perimeter of the combustion chamber. They operate with the existing infrastructure (radiators, boiler) and with the use of a tap to select the hot water supplier. This type of boiler operates with an open or closed expansion tank and requires installation by a plumber because of its complexity. Since these boilers are used exclusively for heating, they must be operated with a closed door. With these fireplaces you have a double benefit because they offer you heating throughout the house and hot water.

  • Thermocouple: A device used to measure temperature by using metal wires to create a small voltage in a circuit, which in a gas fireplace can act as a flame sensor. In a gas fireplace, they are generally connected to the control valve and will cut off the gas to the unit in the event of a flame going out, i.e. no more electricity is detected. This is an important safety feature to prevent the build-up of unlit gas in your home.
  • Thermopile: A thermocouple consists of several thermocouples that generate voltage when exposed to a temperature difference. Thus, when a thermopile converts thermal energy (heat) into electricity, it produces electricity that keeps the valve open. If the water heater does not heat up, the lack of electricity causes the valve to close.
  • Pilot Light / Pilot Assembly: Pilot assemblies are an important component of many gas fireplaces, offering a safe, convenient and reliable way to ignite the flames while providing additional safety. The two main types of pilot light are an upright pilot assembly, which keeps a small flame lit from which the feature can be lit, and a spark-to-pilot system, which only lights when the system is in use. Upright pilots consume slightly more fuel on average, while a spark-to-pilot system is more complex and potentially more prone to needing replacement.
  • Gas Fireplace Control Valve: Simply put, the control valve on a gas fireplace controls the flow of gas to the burner. While this is obvious, it is important to note the different types of valves used in the fireplace design to determine which type you may be looking for.
  • Gas Fireplace Control Unit: Like all types of home appliances, many gas fireplace manufacturers are incorporating new forms of technology into their designs. One such innovation is the inclusion of electronic ignition and controls. The convenience and functionality of these components are highly valued by some homeowners, but with greater flexibility come more complex control requirements. This is where a gas fireplace control unit comes in. It's designed to interpret the electronic signals from the fireplace and remote control and turn them into action.

Absolutely yes: Safety is essential when it comes to fire in the home. Combustion air is taken from outside, through a special air intake, so that the air quality inside the house is never altered. 

The fireplace is so safe that it is also recommended for the bedroom. 

It is not a normal glass but a ceramic glass that can withstand very high temperatures. No danger even in that sense.

The heating ability is not the main purpose of the gas fireplace, but it can help to heat the home.

In some periods, for example during some days in autumn or spring, the gas fireplace manages to give the rooms the pleasant warmth without having to turn on the main heating system.

Gas fireplaces are designed so that the gas fireplace can diffuse warm air into the room.

Of course: the gas fireplace is also ideal for placement outside the house, perhaps under a terrace or on the roof of an attic.

In this case, the atmosphere created is even more impressive, especially if the fireplace is designed to be clad in stone or slate.

In fact, the gas fireplace has very low emissions, does not produce particulate matter or fine dust, so even the environmental aspects are respected.

The cost of an installed fireplace is however very variable, depending on the chosen insert and cladding materials.

On average, the price of an installed gas fireplace is around 3,500 - 6,500 euros. Even though we made estimates in which, thanks to the setting and materials used, the cost was much higher.

As with regular fireplaces, gas units come in a variety of shapes and sizes so we can adapt them to existing spaces. In addition, they are all height adjustable, so you can have a dedicated fireplace with the style that best suits your home environment.
