How to Maintain the Real Fire Fireplace?

A real fire fireplace is a highly efficient device for heating through the combustion of wood or compressed firewood. It has a heating power that far surpasses other forms of heating such as radiators or air conditioning. In fact, even at temperatures as low as minus ten degrees Celsius, igniting the fireplace for just ten minutes can raise the indoor temperature in a 100-square-meter house to above 20 degrees Celsius. It is no wonder that real fire fireplaces are becoming increasingly popular.

To ensure that a real fire fireplace functions efficiently, proper maintenance is necessary. One important aspect of maintenance is choosing the right type of wood. It is recommended to select wood with a humidity level of around 30% moisture content. For instance, painted wood or pine wood should be replaced with fruitwood for optimal heating. The material of the fireplace itself is typically made from steel plates or cast iron, with a lifespan of at least thirty years, while cast iron fireplaces tend to have an even longer life expectancy.

Regular daily maintenance is crucial for a well-functioning real fire fireplace. Many of these fireplaces come with a glass cleaning function, which ensures that the glass remains clean and clear. During regular usage, the glass automatically cleans itself. However, if there are persistent stubborn black-gray stains, a small amount of ash can be used with a wet cloth to wipe them clean. It is important to perform this cleaning process when the fireplace is completely cold.

Another important maintenance step is to clean the furnace of the fireplace. A dry rag can be used to wipe it clean. It is advisable not to use any cleaning agents, as they can potentially damage the metal surface and affect its luster.

In conclusion, maintaining a real fire fireplace requires regular cleaning, proper wood selection, and avoiding damage to the metal surfaces. By following these maintenance tips, the lifespan of the fireplace can be extended, ensuring efficient and effective heating.

Now, let's move on to the second part of the article: how to maintain an ethanol fireplace. Ethanol fireplaces are an excellent choice for adding warmth and ambiance to your home. However, they do require more maintenance compared to traditional wood-burning fireplaces.

To ensure that your ethanol fireplace runs smoothly and safely, follow these maintenance tips:

1. Check the chimney flue before starting a fire to ensure it is open and not blocked by snow, leaves, or debris. This step will allow proper ventilation for the fireplace.

2. Clean out the ashes from the fireplace at least once a day. This prevents ash buildup inside the chimney, reducing the risk of dangerous pressure buildup.

3. Every few months, use a creosote brush to clean out all the creosote from inside the chimney. Creosote can accumulate and become a fire hazard, so it is important to remove it periodically. Creosote brushes can be found at hardware stores that sell fireplace supplies.

4. Regularly inspect the logs used in the ethanol fireplace for any cracks or splits. Damaged logs can lead to unsafe fires, so it is essential to replace them as needed.

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure that your ethanol fireplace remains in great condition, providing you with warmth and ambiance for years to come.

In summary, maintaining both real fire fireplaces and ethanol fireplaces is crucial to their efficient and safe operation. Regular cleaning, appropriate wood selection, and periodic inspections are all necessary to extend the lifespan of these heating devices. Whether you have a real fire fireplace or an ethanol fireplace, proper maintenance will ensure optimal performance and enjoyment. Feel free to consult ART Fireplace for any further questions or concerns about fireplace maintenance.
