What creates comfort in the house? Of course, first of all, it is a calm atmosphere, as well as a beautiful interior or its individual objects. One of them is the fireplace. Nowadays, electric devices with an integrated steam generator, so-called steam fireplaces, are gaining more and more popularity. They are able to create a very realistic imitation of fire in a firebox, practically unnoticeable from a real flame.
The principle of operation and step-by-step installation instructions
All parts of the fireplace are delivered to the buyer in unassembled form. When assembly occurs, you need to ensure that all the details are strictly where they should be.
There are few details in the steam fireplace, the main ones are the generator, logs and halogen lamps.
Next to the container with the flame is a plate. The red latches, which are used to fasten parts of the fireplace, are located at the edges of the plate.
A water to steam converter is installed at the very beginning. It is a small steel cylinder with wires.The steam generator functions as a water sprayer, creating something like water mist.
Further installed halogen lamps with LEDs. They are equipped with special light filters that highlight the steam produced by the generator. Thus, it creates the appearance that the lower part is denser and glows more brightly, like a real burning flame. Above, on the contrary, more active flames are formed. Highlighted steam creates a very beautiful play of colors. In addition, halogen-free particles stimulate vapor particles to constantly move.
In order for steam not to form into a steady flow, such an important element of a steam fireplace as a diffuser is necessary. The essence of his action lies in the mixing of steam. It is thanks to the scatterer that the appearance of spontaneously swirling smoke is created. The diffuser must be installed on a plastic container, and then attached with special fasteners.
After that, install a water tank. In the generator, the water comes from the drive. A special valve controls this process. The size of the tank is different. A steam fireplace with a medium-sized tank can last up to twelve hours.
As for laying logs, then, as a rule, they are placed on top. The material from which they are made is a special plastic that can diffuse light. From the bottom light up the firewood special lamps.
And now, when the installation is complete, and the fireplace is ready for operation, you can turn it on. But immediately after you turn it on, you can see that the picture in the fireplace is quite faded. In fact, you just need to wait a bit. After the steam starts to appear and the fireplace warms up, you can finally see the real flames in the hearth.
