What is the Difference Between an Open and Closed Slow-Combustion Fireplace?
When comparing an open fireplace to a closed slow-combustion fireplace, there are clear distinctions to be made between the 2. An open firebox does not have a front door that seals in the fire and should not be installed in a room that has poor ventilation. Since the fire is exposed to outer elements with an open fireplace, the fire tends to run out faster. With a closed slow-combustion firebox, the fire sits in a controlled area that does not smother the fire but controls the burn rate instead for longer burning fires.
