All Metafire fireplaces can be placed near a wall or in a corner, which makes their operation as convenient as possible.
There are fireplaces with water circuits and disadvantages, including the high cost, which pays off within a few years. It is caused by relatively expensive installation of such a system.
The arrangement of heating systems for fireplaces with a water circuit is fairly standard. There are two types of heating systems: closed and open type. In closed water or antifreeze, it swings with a circulating pump.In the open coolant under the pressure of the hydraulic tank enters the heating circuit.
Any system includes the stove itself, the heat exchanger, automatic, expansion tank, the required number of pipes and radiators.
The principle of operation of the stove is as follows. Cold water from the plumbing is fed into the fireplace. There it heats up and exits the fireplace to the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger transfers heat from the hot fireplace system to the central heating system. At the same time, the water in the fireplace system does not come into contact with the central heating system of the house.
Automatic controls the temperature in the system and the air supply to the fireplace for burning. When overheating, the air is closed and the valve of the cooling circuit is activated.
The manufacturer supplies complete installation instructions with the equipment, so anyone can install it. However, if you are not confident in your abilities, it is better to trust the professionals.
The stove is chosen based on the area of the room. It is believed that for heating 10 square meters. m requires 1 kW of heat. If the furnace is going to heat for 8 hours, the required power is multiplied accordingly by three.So, equipment of 12 - 14 kW is able to heat a room of 50 square meters. m
The dimensions of the models are specified by the manufacturer with high accuracy, which allows to determine how much space the equipment will occupy indoors. To save space, it is recommended to choose a corner structure.
The presence of a cooking stove makes the oven somewhat more expensive, but at the same time it is a very practical option. If the fireplace insert provides for the replacement of interchangeable fireclay plates, this allows for easy and inexpensive repairs in case of wear.
Reviews of stoves, fireplaces testify to the positive experience of heating cottages and mansions in the village. Consumers call low efficiency, high fuel consumption. This limits the use of this equipment in the northern cold regions of Russia.
Fuel quality also matters.
The use of raw wood leads to the formation of incrustations on the chimney.
