Fuego Flame has long been focused on energy efficiency and quality product.
Fuego Flame has membership in HBA (Home Builders Association) and HPA (Hearth Products Association). On this page is information showing how the moisture content of wood pertains to its heat production, as well as the numbers related to how much room air is required by the different types of fireplace for combustion - in this case, less is always better!
A plain masonry fireplace is very inefficient because it draws heated air up the chimney, pulls cold outside air into your home, and causes your main heating system to work harder and longer. The Fuego Flame Fireplace produces up to 50,000 BTUs of heat per hour while burning with the damper up to 95% closed, reducing the amount of wood consumed by 2/3 and nearly eliminating the heat lost out the chimney. In short, the environmentally friendly Fuego Flame is
the most efficient fireplace insert on the market today.

Twice as much heat as 30% moisture content wood
Stored Indoors & elevated from the floor
Pretty Flames with Secondary Combustion
1/2 the heat of 20% moisture content wood
Sizzling or Hissing with Very Little Heat
Stored Outdoors & elevated from the ground with just the top covered
Stored Outside, Uncovered & On The Ground
Bubbling from the ends of the wood, almost NO heat
Stored On the Ground for Years with the Bark Still On
Will NOT Support Combustion
For Best Results & Prime Energy Conversion Efficiency, Store Your wood in a shed or other structure protected from the elements, to minimize Total Wood Moisture Content.
A conventional fireplace draws up to 20,000 cubic feet of air per hour, sucking heated air out of your home. Smokers can recognize this because they will see their smoke rising up the chimney. When in use, the Fuego only draws up to 600 cubic feet of air per hour - using less in 24 hours than an open fireplace uses in 1 hour.
Result? ENORMOUS energy savings.
The standard unit of measure for firewood is the cord, which is found by height x depth x width (in feet) for a total measure 128 cubic feet. Another common unit of measure is face cord, which is a stack of wood measuring 4 x 8 (feet), with the length of individual pieces often not specified but usually measuring 14 to 24 inches long. Rank cord and fireplace cord usually mean the same as face cord.
Many states, including Missouri, require that in any sale of firewood a bill of sale be provided showing the name and address of the purchaser and seller, and the cords or fractions of a cord involved in the sale.

Stormy weather conditions during the winter months can cause unexpected power losses no matter where you live - in or out of the city. Many fireplaces rely on electric fans to distribute heat back into the home, but Fuego Flame fireplaces produce high heat and efficiency (up to 50,000 BTUs) without Electricity.
