This listing is for a 2Q Fireplace Grate Heater hand built in the USA by hastyheat.com, custom fitted to fit within the dimensions of your fireplace that you provide. The 2Q may be used with or without any existing glass doors. When used with glass doors it will raise them just 2" higher; as it slips in underneath. The external fan is a slip fit for easy removal or installation to suit your needs, and can be placed either right or left. The heat exchanger is made from 5" wide 2" tall Structural steel 1/8" thick for a lifetime of use.
The 2Q has an enormous surface area to capture the heat of the fire and conduct it into your home. Hot air is forced out by a fan blower after it has circulated through the high flow rate structural steel tubing. As your rooms air is drawn in by the fan and forced through the structural tubing of the 2Q it is heated by the coals of the fire burning directly upon the heavy duty 1/8" thick tubing, then the heat exchanger passes up the back of your fireplace to gather even more heat from the flame and exhaust of the fire before it goes up the chimney. What this means to you is clean and efficient combustion of your firewood upon the 2Q, that maximizes the extraction of the heat from the fire, which is then blown into your home.
The 2Q will improve the comfort of your home, and will reduce the cost of your heating bill Substantially, all while making your cord wood last longer for the same level of comfort.

When you use our Grate Heat Exchanger in a fireplace, you will realize a saving on your heating costs. With one of these you can extract a larger percentage of the heat wasted and going up your chimney.
Our all steel design uses several perfectly sized heavy duty thick wall tubes for maximum heat exchanger surface area, superior airflow volume, minimum burn through, and maximum combustion area volume. The tubes are fully welded together forming a channel that is filled with cool home air. The tubes then heat the air as it passes through them. Hot air is then blown back into the your home with velocity. This adds conduction from the hot coal coals and convection from the flame, heating to the radiant heat of a fireplace. Our products recover otherwise lost energy or BTU from the embers and flame of your fire. The AC fans we use plug into a standard 110 VAC wall outlet (DC optional for solar panel, wind, solar cell, photo voltaic cell off grid or grid tie applications), they are quiet running at a measured 50 db or less decibels, and rated at 100 CFM each. With the option of a variable speed fan control when mood is more important than heat output you can reduce the background hum of our heat exchangers in operation for the perfect ambiance. Customers have observed how the warmth generated by these heat exchangers circulates to the adjoining rooms of their home. We are passionate about our products that serve to increase the comfort of your entire home, conserve the amount of wood you burn, and nearly eliminate the need for other expensive methods of climate control such as Electric heaters, heat pumps, corn or pellet stove, and central air oil or gas furnaces.
We stock 4 sizes designed to fit completely within their square measurements: 14” wide, 18” wide, 20” wide, and 24” wide. Rectangular units can be readily assembled from our stock of 14", 18”, 20", or 24" deep; components to your specific needs. Our double row heat exchangers are staggered and spaced to provide maximum heat exchanger surface area without obstructing the escape of rising exhaust.
Please allow for longer production times to build arched and custom sizes other than stock, "to your specifications" which can be built to fit within the firebox tolerances of your fireplace and complement its hearth and facade. Email pictures and thorough measurements for quote.
The best method of determining which size of grate heat exchanger to select is to use a cardboard box that fills your fireplace appropriately and take its measurements, then select or specify a grate that will fit within the dimensions of that cardboard box.
On any Fireplace Grate Heater - Thermal Reclamation Unit we offer the following options:
Removable ash trays; the sheet metal ash tray holds the ash in a tidy container that is easy to remove, dump, and clean which makes ash cleanup a snap.
Variable speed fan control; this allows you to adjust the heat output and ambient noise level for the perfect ambiance.
Integral spark arrestor screen; available in kink free flowing chain maile.
Automatic Thermostat; this turns your fan on and off automagically for you when you start a fire, then shuts the fan off when your fire burns out.
