Why A Bellfires Refractory Fireplace?We Can Install Bellfires Fireplaces - Mansfield OH - Chim Cheroo Chimney

Fireplaces have lots of benefits, not the least of which is the cozy feel and smell of a wood fire. But if you’re looking for an efficient heat source, a fireplace isn’t your best option. Early fireplaces especially were inefficient. This was especially unfortunate because fireplaces early on were the only heating source for most homes. Fortunately, the Count of Rumford was on this problem, and he decided to experiment to see if the efficiency could be improved. He realized that the design of the fireplace was at fault, and this is what he worked on. Through experimentation and over time, he developed a plan for a fireplace that was less smoky and burned hotter and cleaner than before. As other inventors realized how beneficial the improvements were, they continued to work on ways to increase the functionality of fireplaces, and eventually Professor Peter Rosin, after conducting scientific experiments on air and smoke flow, produced a product that revolutionized fireplaces. This information was used by Bell of England, and the Bellfire fireplace was born.


The word ‘refractory’ may have you confused. What exactly does this mean? When something is refractory, it means that it can withstand high heat. This is just the word you want when describing your new fireplace.

Bellfires: A Great Option

So, you love how your traditional fireplace looks but you also know that it isn’t necessarily an efficient heat source. Bellfires might just be the way to go. They are ceramic-insulated, which means that the heat won’t transfer to any of the items in your home which might be placed near your fireplace. This is also an assurance that the heat is maintained inside your firebox. Efficiency will be increased because heat is reflected back into the room, so you will be kept warmer and more comfortable, keeping you comfy cozy all winter long.

What You Should Know About Bellfire Fireplaces

As spring approaches, sometimes all you need is a change. However, it doesn’t need to be something drastic like a new job or house. There are other things that you can do that can change things up a bit. Maybe a new carpet would make things look new. A little paint can go a long way to clean and brighten things up. Some new furniture can completely change the look of your room as well. You should think about redoing your fireplace if you want a little bit more of a change. Bellfire refractory fireplaces are an excellent upgrade option.

What Does Refractory Mean?

When you plan to make a big purchase, you know it’s important to understand what it is you’re buying. So when talking about a refractory fireplace, you’ll want to know what refractory means. A good definition of this is that it is something that can withstand high heat, and that is definitely something that you want to describe the new fireplace that you’re planning to have installed in your home.

History of Bellfires

Early fireplaces were most certainly not very efficient. They were used as the sole heating sources of the home, but a lot of the heat went right out the chimney. Benjamin Thompson, the Count of Rumford, saw the problems and decided to do some experimenting to see if he could improve this situation. One thing that he realized was that a new design on a fireplace was needed. He changed the traditional design of a fireplace and made a fireplace that was less smoky, cleaner, and hotter.

Others eventually continued to work, update, and improve Count Rumford’s designs. One man who did so was Professor Peter Rosin, who changed the design after conducting scientific tests on air and smoke flow. His changes increased efficiency and functionality, and eventually his information was used by Bell of England to develop what is now known as a Bellfire fireplace .

What Makes Bellfires Great

If you want a traditional look with efficient heating, give a Bellfire fireplace some real thought. The ceramic insulations keeps heat inside the firebox and fireplace. The heat will be reflected back into your room, and that will keep you and your family warmer and more comfortable during the cold days of winter.
