How it works?
The Fireplace Radiator is a solid cast iron workhouse designed to give you years of use. It will heat your home while keeping the beauty of your fireplace and open wood burning ambiance.
It takes about 20 minutes to set up and that includes taking it out of the box. Once installed, you will notice that the fan draws in cool air from the floor and pushes it through the plenum where it is heated by your wood burning fire. As the air moves through, it picks up the heat and delivers it into your home through front air diverter bar. It is really quite simple and ingenious. You may install it with existing glass doors and mesh screens to keep the beauty of your fireplace and your home. The Fireplace Radiator fits into just about all fireplaces The small fan (UL listed motor) has a variable speed control and is extremely quiet. During the warmer months, you can simply remove the fan and leave the Fireplace Radiator in place.
How it saves?
All fireplaces are good conductors of heat but over 90% of that heat literally goes right up the chimney. Our Fireplace Radiator corrals that heat and sends it back to you. Thermostats can be turned down or off which means lower heating bills immediately. As long as you have even an amber burning, it will continue to give you heat. What are you waiting for? Order it today before the next cold front.
All metal and cast iron parts are warranted for five years from date of purchase. All electrical parts are warranted for one year from date of purchase. We only ship brand new, in-the-box Fireplace Radiators.
Will it fit into my fireplace?
The Fireplace Radiator fits just about all fireplaces. The powerful fan can be ordered so that it is located on either the left side or the right side of your fireplace. (closest to electrical outlet) This unit isn't BTU rated since you control the amount of heat being generated by the size of your fire and speed adjustment of the fan. The fan box has a variable speed control and is very quiet.
The Fireplace Radiator must be installed in wood burning masonry fireplaces with a fire box having a depth of no less than 16 1/2 inches and no more than 26 inches. (Your fireplace can be deeper but the unit will extend to 26 inches in depth.) It is designed to work with a fireplace that has an opening of no more than 51 inches. The plenum (the large piece that sits at the back of your fireplace) and side tubes are made of virtually indestructible cast iron. The plenum is 18 1/4" wide, 11" tall and 3" thick. Your fire is built right on the side tubes of the Fireplace Radiator which are 17 1/2 inches apart on the outside and 11 inches on the inside of the tubes which means you don't need a grate.
