A huge topic of discussion is how to get more heat output from your fireplace. There are many options to optimize your fireplace heat distribution and some of those options can be pricey. If you are looking for a way to better heat your home with your fireplace and want to keep a budget, then a fireplace grate heater may be a great option!
The grate heater is an efficient and purposeful way to bring the heat out of your fireplace and into your home. They work by pulling the air from inside your home, circulating the air, and pushing the heat from your fireplace. A fan is used for the intake and output of the air being circulated. But don't worry, you can use the grate with or without the fan.
Grate heaters are known to also assist with your wood-burning fireplace by reducing the amount of wood used as well as keeping the wood from shifting. These aspects are important for efficiency because if you are burning through the wood but not getting heat, what is the point? A grate heater is made to keep this from happening. The grate heater is made to hold your wood in place in order to maximize the wood use and causes the wood to burn slower and hotter.
Two points of interest to take away from your grate heater are:
1. You will not use as much wood as you would without a fireplace grate heater!
2. The heat increase that you get from your fireplace will offset your heating bills!
To make this all the more exciting, not only are you saving and getting a better heat output with your grate heater, there are fireplace doors! Fireplace doors are also a great way to keep a more efficient home using a fireplace. With the combination of your grate heater and fireplace doors, you will heat your home better, keep the air out when your fireplace is not in use, and save big!
You may also want to consider that you may need a mesh curtain on your fireplace. Since your fireplace will be using a lot more heat, you will need something to protect your loved ones, pets, and items around your fireplace. The mesh screen will keep in the sparks and embers that will try to escape from your fire. A mesh curtain is perfect for the job!
