The key to a Fuego's efficiency lies in the adjustable damper and fireplace design that provides the proper air-flow without the use of noisy and expensive blowers. Air flow is controlled to provide ultimate burning conditions. The Fuego engineers designed the fireplace for optimum operation without the use of electricity. The Fuego Flame's natural convection blower circulates heat at up to 250 cfm - the highest heat output on the market with or without a blower.
When operated properly, the Fuego can burn with the damper 95% closed allowing little or no heat to escape up the chimney. With the ceramic glass doors closed, this clean wood burning fireplace reduces smoke emissions and helps save on fuel making it one of the most environmentally friendly wood burning units in the world.
The unique handcrafted open air vent design and damper control delivers up to 50,000 BTU's per hour while allowing you to enjoy a large viewing area and heat delivery of up to 3,000 square feet of living space. The fireplace itself will reach temperatures between 900 and 1200 degrees farenheit.
To ensure quality and long-life, all Fuego Flame products are hand welded. They are made from heavy duty 12 gauge steel, much thicker than the typical 18 to 21 gauge steel used in similar products.
These fireplaces offer one of the largest viewing areas available on the market and have the unique ability to burn either gas or wood, depending on your preference at set up.
