Log fires can offer great supporting heat to your home, as well as being a thing of beauty and romance. As they burn biomass in the form of logs they are also using a carbon neutral green fuel (of course assuming sustainably sourced logs are used.)
Installing a modern designer high efficiency (80-90%) log fire means that you will have a much cleaner burn with greatly reduced particulate and gaseous emissions, plus you will be using half as many logs, as you would otherwise use with a traditional log burner.
“Log fires can offer great supporting heat to your home, as well as being a thing of beauty.”
A designer log fire is almost always on the wish list for the modern self-build home, and they are the perfect partner to heat pump system, offering additional heat on the coldest days of the year, and make a stunning centrepiece to the house.
Replacing your existing older log fire is also a very good thing to do. Older log fires and log burners burn at such a low efficiency level (25-50%) that they do create a lot of particulate pollution. Replacing your old log burner with a modern high efficiency (80-90%) log fire means that you will have a much cleaner burn with greatly reduced particulate and gaseous emissions, plus you will be using half as many logs.
“At 80-90% efficiency, a modern log fire means that you will have a much cleaner burn with greatly reduced particulate and gaseous emissions, plus you will be using half as many logs.”
The beauty of the burn of a modern high efficiency log fire should not be underestimated. Where the fire burns so efficiently it burns all the gaseous emissions of the logs, creating a flame pattern that is a dance of fire – truly beautiful, and not what you are used to if you are used to looking at a normal log fire.
With a new build home, where possible it is important that your log fire is incorporated into the design of your new home, to ensure that it is installed as cost effectively as possible, and the flue issues are considered at the early design stage.
“Logs are a carbon neutral renewable fuel.”
A modern designer log fire is also a stunning feature to your new home, and consequently deserves being designed into your new home to achieve its maximum impact. Your log fire can very much be the ‘heart of the home’ and as such needs to be designed as a central feature to your house.
An insert fire offers a really large viewing window making them superb feature fires. They can be retrofit into an existing fireplace, or alternatively can be installed in their very own feature wall. Feature walls can include shelves, log stores, bench seats, TV inserts, to make a stunning and functional centrepiece.
The height of contemporary fashion, a pillar fire can be installed almost anywhere, and makes a real statement. They are made to create a low output and as slow a heat release as possible, making them ideal for the highly insulated home.
These look stunning and make a real statement. Perfect for the designer home.
Bespoke, handmade and unique – anything is possible.
