The secret to the efficiency of the Earthfire firepot lies in the thermal capacity of the clay body. The firepot continues to radiate heat into the room even when the fire has burned low and will stay hot for up to two hours after the fire has gone out. A metal fireplace has very little thermal capacity and quickly loses heat. Make a large fire initially to best heat the entire firepot - this allows you to make the best possible use of the ceramic material's ability to store and radiate thermal energy.
Once a comfortable ambient temperature is reached it is very easy to maintain, wood placed in the firepot combusts cleanly and burns down to a very fine ash. Dry wood optimizes the efficiency of the firepot and will also cause less harmful emission. Due to a combination of continuous draw and complete combustion of wood these fireplaces, unlike other open fires, do not smell at all.
The only maintenance required is to brush out the fine ash every 15 to 20 fires. Proudly made in South Africa.
