They are good in that their service life can be several decades, but they need constant cleaning and periodic maintenance. In addition, you need to think about preparing firewood for the heating season.
For those who wish to simplify their life, there are gas fireplaces with bottled gas. The volume of generated heat is enough to heat the house, and the fuss around the unit is several times less.
Such a fireplace is configured to work with liquefied gas or propane-butane.
Many owners of country houses and summer cottages have appreciated the convenience of this method of heating a room, because there are times when there is no access to natural gas or there are power outages.
You can buy fireplace inserts in the store from our partners in the online store.
The principle of operation is similar to that of a conventional kitchen oven.
Note. The safest bottled gas fireplace is the one that runs on a catalyst burner, since the temperature in the heat exchanger does not exceed 240 ºС.
In a gas infrared fireplace, the surface is heated up to 1100 ºС, in units based on nozzles - up to 800 - 850 ºС. Please note that the hot air in the room absorbs oxygen and leads to a decrease in the level of humidity, therefore it is very important to ensure the organization of supply and exhaust ventilation in the house.
The advantages of using bottled gas include the fact that no toxic substances are formed during its combustion, which cannot be said about burners other than gasoline or diesel fuel.
It has long been known that gasoline, for example, emits carbon monoxide, which can poison the body. The amount of the formed soot and fuel residues fluctuates within 0.01%, the efficiency is at the level of 95-98%. Different models have different things.
Cylinders can be refilled at gas stations, and connection to the system takes a few minutes.
Gas fireplaces of modern types are equipped with automatic control systems, which greatly simplifies their operation.
Often, the high cost of such a unit and the high cost of gas stops the purchase of a gas fireplace for giving under a cylinder.At first glance, it may seem that heating an ordinary brick stove with wood is much more profitable, but if you dig deeper and understand the intricacies of the work of gas fireplaces, your opinion can radically change.
To understand the approximate amount of expenses, we suggest using the calculation formula:
Thus, having these data and making an approximate comparison, it turns out that in order to get the equivalent of the amount of heat produced from firewood and bottled gas, 1.2 rubles and 1.1 rubles are needed according to each type of fuel. It turns out that for heating a house with propane, you will spend no more money than for firewood. And taking into account the tariff for the transportation of firewood, propane will really cost less.
To organize heating in the house using gas fireplace with bottled gas, do the following:
Built-in gas fireplaces with low power, adapted to remove combustion products by means of ventilation.
75 l / h. Thus, over the weekend, roughly speaking, you will spend 36 liters of propane, which is not so much.
Gas fireplaces of this type are the most effective and economical. Their power is enough to heat a small house. The design of the heater has a steel body and a burner, which is located in the center of the unit.
The principle of their work consists in local heating of a part of the room. Most of all, these fireplaces are suitable for dachas consisting of one room, like a studio apartment.
If desired, an infrared gas fireplace can be made on your own. To do this, you need an industrial gas-fired heater. To ensure stable and productive work, it is necessary to replace a portable five-liter cylinder with a propane connection.
The structure is installed on a steel support with a foil-clad reflector.
This type of heater is suitable for use in small rooms where open fire is prohibited for safety reasons. The design of the fireplace is made of a ribbed aluminum body, a catalyst capsule, a fan that blows a mixture of oxygen and propane. The disadvantages include the high cost of the catalyst block - about 21 thousand rubles, with the calculation of work for 700 - 800 hours.
Advantages of Cylinder Gas Fireplaces:
Modern fireplaces have a sealed gas combustion chamber, which prevents gas leakage and sparks from entering the heated room.
Manufacturers produce various models of heating equipment for gas, but their design is almost identical.
Starting gas fireplaces in operation is carried out as follows: the regulator is turned on and the fuel supply starts with automatic ignition. Thus, propane ignites and continues to burn until it reaches the required temperature in the room. Then the power of the unit is reduced automatically or manually.
Note. In order to choose the optimal model of a gas fireplace, you need to look at the technical characteristics of the equipment, determine the parameters of the heated room or house.
Type of fuel cell:
This point must be taken into account when buying, since fireplaces operating, for example, on bottled gas, are not designed to work with mains, and vice versa. Marking N denotes models of gas fireplaces powered by natural gas.
The P marking means the equipment is suitable for propane-butane.
No chimney installation is required.
Shape of the gas fireplace:
Choosing a gas fireplace is a responsible business. Your task is to choose high-quality and reliable equipment with good functionality.
Prices for fireplace models are more than affordable. In addition, they are well decorated.
