Environmentally Friendly Heat


Firewood burning fireplaces are ecologically friendly because they respect Nature’s carbon cycle. This is how this works:



As trees grow, they absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it within; by the time they are fully grown, almost half of their weight is carbon. When they die, be it from decay or forest fires, they release this carbon back into the atmosphere, in the form of carbon dioxide. Thus, the natural carbon cycle is completed and balance is achieved.

Firewood is the product of tree pruning, which is highly beneficial to trees and in no way harms the natural reserve. And in this way, being part of the tree, it has its own share of stored carbon dioxide. When you burn firewood in a fireplace, it will release the carbon within just as trees naturally do. In this way the balance is maintained because there is no more carbon dioxide being released than what the natural cycle would allow.



There are other types of fuel such as oil, natural gas and coal, denominated fossil fuels because they formed from the fossilized remains of plants and animals and by exposure to high temperatures and pressures inside the Earth. Burning these fuels will release a much larger amount of carbon dioxide, which was not intended to come in contact with the atmosphere to begin with. This will ultimately break the balance, causing long-term damage to the environment such as global warming and other devastating effects.

Woodburning fireplaces are an ecologically responsible option for your home, offering a more natural lifestyle that brings you in contact with nature and, ultimately, represent a healthy return to the origins.

When you combine this system with our turbine-powered chimneys, you will be able to produce a greater amount of heat with the same amount of wood. Not only that, but their mechanism will allow you to heat the upper floors at your home as well.
