Why A Bellfires Refractory Fireplace?
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.
