Closed System Fireplaces have many advantages:


  • Most good quality, slow combustion stoves have a very long lifespan, normally in excess of 20 years, if they are not abused and are serviced regularly.
  • Most of the heat generated remains in your home as the flow of hot air up the chimney is very limited and the need to replace the escaped hot air through windows and doors, is negated.
  • Most slow burners use very little wood and can keep burning on one or two pieces of wood per hour.
  • You will not have the smell of smoke in your home.
  • Most units only have to be cleaned once a week if used every day.
  • With your controls set correctly and after placing a number of logs into the unit late in the evening the stove will continue to give heat for up to 8 hours which means you will wake up to a warm home. What a pleasure, don't you think?
  • You will save a fortune in wood purchase costs.
  • The paint on most imported stoves is of such a high quality that it will normally only need touching up after 3 to 4 years.

So to sum it all up:

Closed system fireplaces are the most effective way to heat your home as they only allow enough air into the fireplace to fuel the fire, thus creating an 80% heat retention in your home, versus a traditional open fireplace that has an 80% heat loss.
