Homeowners with a fireplace have a unique set of concerns when it comes to greening up their home heating practices. Fireplace owners, here are two methods you can use to help cut your heating costs and make your fireplace more environmentally friendly.
Use EcoBricks in your existing fireplace or consider installing a brand new Eco-Fire Super-Grate on your fireplace today.
EcoBricks are made up of compressed sawdust and woodchips, which provide you with a much cleaner, much more efficient alternative to using wood in your fireplace. They also burn hotter, last longer and don’t produce as much smoke as ordinary wood does. Visit www.eco-bricks.com for a demonstration and information on where you can find this product in your local area.
Available at www.ecofire.com, the EcoFire Super-Grate acts as sort of an electric fireplace bellow and can help reduce fireplace-related indoor pollution. This works by increasing the temperature of the fire, which burns off more pollutants than normal and in the end, leaves you with a cleaner burning fire and a reduced carbon footprint.
