If you’re looking to install a Bellfires refractory fireplace, Chim-Cheroo Chimney Service is the chimney service to call.
What is a Bellfires Refractory Fireplace?
Although fire has been used for centuries to heat homes, according to the bellsfiresusa website, in the late 1700s, Benjamin Thompson, Count of Rumford, began to study how a fireplace worked in order to come up with a fireplace design that would “burn cleaner and hotter, and most importantly, did not smoke.” Later, in the 1900s, Dr. Peter O. Rosin expanded on Rumford’s design. “Through the use of laboratory equipment, Dr. Rosin was able to observe air and smoke flow patterns and thus developed the ideal firebox and chimney shape for maximum efficiency.”
Because of the work of Rumford and Rosin, a new type of fireplace was developed. Bellfires fireplaces offer an ideal firebox and throat shape which, along with ceramic-insulated components, allow for a smoke-free fire that actually heats more of your home, rather than allowing the heat to exit through the chimney like a standard fireplace does.
Advantages to a Bellfires Refractory Fireplace
The Bellfires refractory fireplace has several advantages over other fireplaces. Bellfiresusa states that one of these advantages is the refractory liner. Because the liner can store a large amount of radiant heat, the firebox temperatures can be elevated above normal conventional fireplaces. Because of the nearly complete combustion, no visible smoke comes out of the chimney. Another big advantage of this is that there is a very low amount of creosote, which will make the cleaning of your chimney a breeze. This also helps to get rid of bad odors that can emanate from build-up inside your chimney.
The Bellfires fireplace also is made with an innovative material that includes extra wall thickness. This makes the fireplace almost indestructible, which saves on possible expensive repairs later on. Another advantage that the Bellfires fireplace offers is a design that features the “Apex,” which is located along the back wall of the fireplace. The hot space that is created allows for more heat to radiate back into the room.
