True Fire Fireplaces Is Installed Like This, Warm and Fashionable in Winter!

Over the years, the Fireplaces industry has invested significant time and resources into researching and addressing the challenges faced by Fireplaces. Through scientific research over the past decade, it has been discovered that the performance of Fireplaces not only depends on the design and manufacturing process of the stove itself, but also greatly relies on the correct installation steps and specifications.

In this article, we will explore the best practices for installing real fire Fireplaces in homes. While it is ideal to adhere to all of these best practices, there may be situations where compromises need to be made due to architectural design or personal preferences of the homeowner or designer.

First and foremost, let's discuss the ventilation issue that often arises with real fire Fireplaces. Ventilation problems are typically caused by the positioning of the fireplace and chimney within the home, as well as other equipment present. Therefore, integrating the heating system with the fireplace as the central element into the overall house design is crucial to prevent smoke from escaping into the living space.

In Figure 1 and 2, we have summarized the key elements to consider when addressing the practical aspects of installing real fire Fireplaces. These include:

1. Installing the real fire Fireplaces and chimney inside the building.

2. Determining the appropriate height for the chimney.

3. Avoiding large-scale, unidirectional exhaust events.

4. Opting for longer tobacco pipes to improve performance.

5. Ensuring a straight path for the tobacco pipe during installation.

6. Installing a glass door for the real fire Fireplaces.

When installing the real fire Fireplaces and chimney, the common approach is to position them on the outer framework of the building, effectively saving internal floor space. This method is often chosen to address the issue of older fireplaces producing excessive flue gas, leading to odors and cold air entering the room. However, this placement outside the house weakens the chimney's ability to resist negative pressure, which can result in ventilation failures.

To overcome this, it is recommended to install the chimney within the warm, enclosed space of the building. By doing so, the internal chimney will generate more spare airflows compared to the negative pressure caused by the stack effect. Additionally, the height of the chimney plays a significant role in ensuring proper performance. It should ideally match or even surpass the highest point of the building. By penetrating the building's structure, the chimney can further prevent the wind from adversely affecting its functionality.

Large-scale exhaust events, such as using powerful kitchen range hoods, can also cause negative pressure and lead to smoke overflow. To prevent this, it is advised to either avoid using such exhaust fans or introduce the same volume of fresh air from outside to compensate for the air being expelled. Design issues, such as a loft or a poorly positioned external pipe, can also contribute to pressure imbalances and smoke overflow.

Using longer tobacco pipes helps generate more airflow, which is particularly important under constant temperature differences. While the minimum length recommended by manufacturers is typically around 42 to 45 cm, opting for higher specifications is advisable to achieve optimal performance, as Fireplaces often require increased airflow.

When laying the tobacco pipes, it is best to avoid any offsets in the chimney as much as possible. Each turning point in the exhaust system causes turbulence and flow resistance, reducing the overall efficiency. While some offset might be inevitable, careful attention to the rest of the system design is crucial to minimize its impact.

Installing a glass door for the real fire Fireplaces is highly recommended, as open fireplaces are more prone to smoke overflow. Open fireplaces offer little resistance to prevent flue gases from entering the room, and most homes lack adequate natural leakage areas to compensate for the air consumed by the fire. Multi-faceted open fireplaces are especially susceptible to pressure differences and airflow. Promptly closing the glass door is the quickest and most effective solution to prevent smoke leakage. Furthermore, placing the main current limiting device on the side of the room as a form of a glass door greatly improves resistance to smoke leakage.

In conclusion, installing real fire Fireplaces requires careful consideration of various factors to ensure proper ventilation and performance. By following best practices such as integrating the heating system with the fireplace into the design, determining the appropriate chimney height, avoiding large-scale exhaust events, using longer tobacco pipes, minimizing offsets, and installing a glass door, homeowners can enjoy the benefits of a well-functioning and efficient fireplace in their home.
