Special features

Such a furnace, in its essence, is a modern version of the so-called “stove-burgon-stove”. This Russian invention, which, due to its universal characteristics, such as elegant decor, high heat emission and compact size, has become widespread in other countries. It differs from the fireplace in that the latter, in general, is not adapted for heating the air in the room. Furnaces, on the other hand, have heating surfaces that transfer heat to the surrounding air.

The device is indispensable in situations where the design features of the room do not allow to embed a familiar heating system. Stoves-stoves are most often found in small summer cottages, guest houses, as well as in garages and other non-residential buildings. As a material for the manufacture of such furnaces, cast iron is most often used.The fuel can serve as coal, firewood, peat. The stoves are functioning according to the principle of a heating boiler. There are stoves with a stove and a stove with a stove and oven.

Modern fireplaces, stoves are able to fit even in the most exclusive interior. They have a diverse design - from classic to high-tech style. It is possible to remake the stove under a classic fireplace, decorating it with fire-resistant facing material: a special dry mixture for plastering, tiles, ceramic tile or stone.

Installing this product does not require any special skills. It is worth only paying attention to the fact that in order to avoid possible ignition, it is better to place the stove-fire away from easily flammable pieces of furniture and interior.

Advantages and disadvantages

Of the benefits are the following:

  • Reasonable cost compared to the cost of installing a classic fireplace.
  • Easy installation that you can produce without outside help and special knowledge.

Among the flaws in stoves of fireplaces, one can single out their fire hazard, the level of which can be reduced by installing a model with a lined combustion chamber on metal legs that do not allow the stove to come into contact with the floor. In addition, after the fuel burns through it, this device cools down quite quickly. But today, manufacturers solve this problem by equipping the device with a special system of valves on the air intake, sealed doors of refractory glass, heat-resistant lining of the firebox, etc.

  • The power of the device you need will depend on the area of ​​the heated room.
