Turn your fireplace into a furnace, The ultimate blend of eye pleasing form with function.
Our heat exchangers are designed with the greatest surface area to capture and move into your home the highest percentage of the BTU heat generated by your fire.
Our volume of sales and positive feedback speaks for itself!
What we do offer is the most elegant, well crafted, customizable, and functional heat exchangers both large and small --- available, all at the most reasonable cost.
We have grates that have been in operation since 2000 and no customer has reported burn through.
All our products are made with fully welded uncoated non-galvanized structural grade industrial carbon steel, and UL certified electrical components.
When possiable we use repurposed and recycled steel
We use 100% renueable wind and hydro electricity in our shop.
When you use our Grate Heat Exchanger in an open 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 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. Recovering 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, solarcell, 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 can circulate to the adjoining rooms in your home. A customer sent us many thanks when our grate prevented the freezing of his pipes in -20 weather when his natural gas furnace broke and the part was over a week away. This serves 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, 16” wide, 20” wide, and 24” wide. Rectangular units can be readily assembled from our stock of 14", 16”, 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 smoke.
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 Thermal Reclamation Unit we offer the following options:To simplify cleanup we have removeable ash trays for most all our grate heaters
Removable Ash Tray; This makes cleanup a snap. The removable ash tray also serves to significantly extend the life of your Thermal Reclamation Unit by keeping the hot coals away from direct contact with the exchanger tubes while still conducting the heat of the embers into the tubes below. The sheet metal ash trays hold 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.We offer a variable speed fan controller cord to adjust the output of your grate heater
Integral spark arrestor screen; available in kink free flowing chain maile.
Production time? We normally keep our standard sizes in stock and ready for immediate shipping with winter demand inventory varies, custom orders are usually shipped within 5 business days.
