What is Radiant Heat?

How Does Convection Heat Work? How Does Radiant Heat Work?
Radiant Heat: occurs when an object or surface becomes warm and then emits the heat back in to the room. Certain materials store heat particularly well and can radiate this stored heat back into the room over an extended period.

Radiant heat will travel through the air from its source until it hits an object, and the object (typically furniture or people) will be heated.

What is Convected Heat?

How Does Convection Heat Work? How Does Radiant Heat Work?

Convectet heat heats the air around the fire or stove. Our convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected heating efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and heating it in a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air back into the room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that of a traditional open fire.

Many fires and stoves use a combination of radiant and convected heat.
External Air Facility

All fires require an air source to provide oxygen for combustion. If the air is drawn from room in which the fire is installed, this cas cause draughts. The External Air Facility means your fire will draw air from outside the room and eliminate any draughts, effectively increasing your heating efficiency.
Frameless Fire option

For those who require a minimalist look, frameless fires have no exterior frame between the front of the fire and the wall.

The Gazco high efficiency glass fronted fires do have a 27mm inner frame that secures the glass in place.
Convection System

The Gazco convector fireplaces greatly enhance convected heating efficiency. By drawing cool air through the grate and heating it in a convection chamber before diffusing the warmed air back into the room, the result is a heating efficiency twice that of a traditional open fire.
Remote Control as Standard

Once the pilot light has been ignited manually you can vary the flame height and heat output from the comfort of your armchair.

State of the art features - wood & multi fuel fires
What is Airwash?
Airwash is part of Stovax�s firebox air flow technology.

Airwash is a design feature that uses a specially placed vent or vents to draw in cool air from the outside to �wash� over the inside of the glass. This helps to keep the glass cleaner for longer, allowing you to enjoy the glow and flames to the full.

It is also used as primary combustion air when burning wood.

Cleanburn is part of Stovax�s Triple Air System technology.

With Cleanburn, secondary air is pre-heated as it passes through a heat exchanger chamber within the firebox. It is then drawn into the smoke stream, where it combusts unburnt hydrocarbons to provide a cleaner burn and greater thermal efficiency.

A stove with the Cleanburn will give you more heat output from your fuel.

What is Opti-Burn?

Certain wood burning and multi fuel fires incorporate the Opti-Burn. This setting means burning logs or smokeless fuels with outstanding efficiency, resulting in more heat delivered into the room and less going up the chimney.

Combustion is achieved by directing three separate airflows into the firebox. Primary air burns the fuel under the fuel bed. The Airwash flow helps keep the window clean and the pre-heated, secondary air promotes cleanburning by the combustion of excess hydrocarbons in the smoke,
Boost Setting

Use this setting when lighting or re-fuelling your stove to quickly bring the fire up-to full strength.
