Beating the Winter Chills with an Indoor Slow-Combustion Fireplace
Modern homes are properly insulated and generally feature floor heating and/or air conditioning to control the indoor temperatures. However, these heating features depend on electricity use to heat up your home during the cold Winter months. Apart from ramping up the utility bills, we also face constant load shedding in South Africa. Therefore, your home needs an alternative source of heat that can function independently. This is where our selection of indoor slow-combustion fireplaces can be your solution to warm up your home in style.
How Does an Indoor Fireplace Work?
Closed slow-combustion fireplaces can be built into the wall of your home and are also available in freestanding units. These fireplaces close shut to ensure that smoke will not seep into your home, and rather be vented through a flue pipe that either goes out through the roof or a sidewall, dependent on the installation. As a result, you can enjoy the heat and aesthetics of a fire in your own home, without having to worry about the smoke that is generated by the fire, or expensive electrical bills as a result of using electric heaters and air conditioners.
Freestanding Slow-Combustion Fireplaces
At Home Fires, we supply a wide range of closed slow-combustion fireplaces in South Africa. Our selection of freestanding units includes several Dovre units to choose from. These units feature unique designs that will add to the aesthetic design of your home as opposed to standing out like a sore thumb. The Dovre Astroline 3 CB is an excellent choice when you want a freestanding unit that will spark conversation while making your home toasty and cosy.
The Astroline 3 CB stands on a pedestal, with a top and rear flue pipe outlet.
