Do you want to limit the use of fossil energy sources (fuel oil, gas, coal) because they are polluting and expensive?
Then choose wood!
Wood burning is extremely necessary for the feasi- bility of an European alternative energy policy! Wood heating is economical, environmentally friend- ly, renewable and gives a cozy warmth. Moreover, the price of this type of heating remains very stable whi- le contributing to the development of the local economy.
Those who heat with wood pay less for their energy. Depen- ding on the fuel type (logs, pressed logs, wood chips or pel- lets), wood heating costs between 2.5 and 5.5 cents per kWh.
If used correctly, wood heating makes it possible to drastically re- duce our ecological impact. After all, the CO2 that was absorbed by the tree before it was felled compensates for the CO2 emissions during combustion. In addition, a new plant is immediately planted to replace the cut down tree. In that case, we are talking about a neutral carbon balance. Wood heating is thus an integral part of a natural cycle that greatly reduces our impact on global warming.
Who has never dreamed of a cosy evening by the fireplace? The play of colours of the flames, the crackling of the logs, the pleasant fragrance is simply magical. That fantastic fee- ling of intense well-being and tranquillity can only be obtain- ed with wood. What’s more delightful than the heat radiation that makes your cheeks blush and gives you a good mood?
Built-in fireplaces are fully built into
the chimney and cannot be removed
afterwards without major structural
work. They are available with or without
a convection box and fans. Built-in
fireplaces are generally fitted into newly
built chimneys. All normal maintenance
work can be carried out via the door
opening. No crushing work is required.
Insert, cassette or inset fireplaces are made in a compact shape with a flat top so that they can be slided into an opening in the chimney. The frame of the appliance covers the opening. These appliances can be simply removed from the chimney later the same way without structural work. Built-in inserts are fitted with a convection box and often have fans as well. They are typically used in the replacement market and installed in existing chimneys, but can also be used in new build projects. All normal maintenance work can be carried out via the door opening. No structural work is needed for this.
