All About the Bellfires Fireplace


If you’ve been thinking about major home remodeling but think that redoing a fireplace is just too big of a job, think again. At Chim Cheroo Chimney Service Inc., we can help you make the change over to a new fireplace that will update your home and give your room a whole new look. Not only will it make a difference aesthetically, it will make a difference economically, too.

Progression of Fireplaces

Early on, fireplaces were neither efficient nor necessarily beautiful. They provided heat and an efficient way to cook food. As homes became more elaborate, fireplaces did as well. However, chimneys were, out of necessity, constructed with a wide design. This accommodated for the chimney sweeps who cleared the chimney of soot and debris. This wide design allowed a lot of the room’s heat to be drawn out of the room and the chimney. However, this decreased efficiency and the temperature throughout the house during cold winter months.

An early student of fireplace design, Benjamin Thompson, the Count of Rumford, made modifications to the design of traditional fireplaces, and developed one that burned hotter and cleaner and with less smoke coming into the room. Over the years, more modifications included adjusting the shape of the chimney to increase efficiency and developing a better firebox. Eventually, Bell of England took all the research and designed the Bellfires Fireplace. One important concept that was furthered was the idea of a refractory design. A refractory brick is made of refractory ceramic material. It can withstand high temperature, which of course is very important in a fireplace. It is also an efficient energy source.

Bellfires Refractory Fireplace

If you’re looking for a new look for your room, it’s time to give Chim Cheroo Chimney Service a call. Bellfires Fireplaces come in a variety of designs that add beauty and style to your room. The ceramic-insulated firebox and hearth project more heat into the room. Therefore, the firebox keeps heat in instead of directing it out of the room. Bellfires Fireplaces also produce less creosote. This means less chance of a chimney fire while you’re enjoying your fireplace next winter.
