What is the difference between a traditional fireplace and a modern stone fireplace?
The fireplace is an indoor heating device that is built independently or on the wall. It is powered by combustibles and has a chimney inside. Originated from Western homes or palace heating facilities. The traditional real fire fireplace is relatively simple and practical, and the American fireplace is more prominent and individualized to show one’s taste, so it is closer to the people. In a concise, powerful style, there is a place in the field of fireplaces. The evolution of the fireplace to its later function is not only warm in the cold winter, but also a symbol of wealth and family.
The Advantages and Disadvantages of Traditional Fireplaces:
For old-fashioned fireplaces, the biggest drawback is not dirty, but the need to we often manage the chimney, as well as the risk of fire due to open flames, and the heating effect is relatively poor. And in order to ensure the smooth discharge of smoke, the old fireplace usually has a movable iron opening on the top of the fireplace, which is the opening of the fireplace to the chimney. It should also be noted that the birds especially like to build a nest in the chimney, and they have to put a cover on the top of the chimney to prevent birds.
Imagine that in winter, it is minus 20 degrees Celsius. The wind and the wind are flying outside the window. When the mouth is opened, the temperature in the room will be affected. So the old-fashioned fireplace is more of an ornament, suitable for early spring or late autumn, or warm winter in Georgia, northern Florida.
When the old-fashioned fireplace is burning, the smoke is definitely there, but it is generally good. The use of wood to burn smoke is relatively large, but many people like that taste and mood. Of course, it is sometimes possible to use artificially synthesized fuels similar to anthracite, which are easy to burn and have relatively little smoke. Regarding the cleaning of dust, in addition to cleaning the fireplace, many people will open a passage under the fireplace to open the opening, and the ash can be directly swept to a space in the basement that is repaired in the wall, so that it can be cleaned up at the same time.
The Advantages of Modern Fireplaces:
Nowadays, in new houses, most families use natural gas or electric modern stone fireplaces, and a small part uses alcohol to burn, so the glass in front of the fireplace can’t be opened, it is very clean and there is no smoke. It is convenient and quick, and it has no effect on the indoor environment, making the room clean and hygienic.
The modern stone fireplace has been developed not only as a decorative element, but as a clean and efficient heating device, and at the same time it has a great viewing effect. Traditional open fireplaces are inefficient, typically 10-15%, while modern closed-burning finished fireplace/burner combustion efficiency is significantly improved, up to 70-80%. The higher the combustion efficiency, the less the emissions of exhaust particles, the more efficient the furnace is almost invisible to the naked eye when burning, and there is no smoke in the room.
