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
