Slow combustion wood fireplaces

The fire that heats both fireplaces and stoves is produced by the combustion principle based on the "triangle of fire", in which three essential elements participate: fuel (in this case wood), fuel (the air and in particular the oxygen it contains), as well as an activation energy (spark, flame,...). Thanks to the chemical reaction, the combustion of wood produces heat that allows heating the ambient air inside a combustion chamber, in addition to lighting, thanks to the flames.
The closed combustion chamber is the basis for optimal heating performance.

Contrary to what happens in open hearth fireplaces, slow combustion is made in a closed hearth, which brings many advantages, including achieving exceptional performance of an 80% of the heat produced, against the reduced 15% achieved by fireplaces with an open hearth.

The distribution of heat towards the room in which the fireplace is installed is done by radiation, both from the fireplace itself, as well as from the smoke evacuation tube, which also helps dissipate heat. Bear in mind that, on the other hand, the entire surface of the fireplace will be very hot, so care must be taken when placing it in relation to furniture and accessories, as well as to avoid coming into contact with it, especially in the children's case.

Finally, as with fireplaces, it is necessary to pay attention to the firewood that is used as fuel, avoiding wood treated with chemical materials or that has been painted or varnished. Use dry wood of varieties that guarantee slow combustion, in order to achieve optimal performance.
