Never use inflammable liquid or petroleum/wax in a fireplace inset or stove
What is the advantage of a Fireplace Inset over a free standing stove like the Alpha? and what is the advantage over an open fireplace?
The free standing stove like the Alpha or Gabriel will take more space in your room as it's placed at a minimum distance of 6 inches from the wall
For instance, a friends cottage in Mukteshwar (7000 feet over msl) that was built 3 years back had great looking open fireplaces that just couldn't heat the sitting room. We tested it and the smartly finished fireplace (from the outside, stone mantle and surround) raised the room temperature by 1 degree celsius after one hour of burn time. So we sat in monkey caps sipping a drink
With an inset or a stove for that matter, your room will heat better, you'll be able to control the fire, be able to view the fire through extra large German made heat resistant glass and there will be no embers that can crackle and fall onto your floor or carpet - so it's safer
What is a fireplace inset? And why should you invest in one rather than on an electric fireplace, ethanol fireplace or a gas fireplace?
A fireplace inset has the same clean burn technology as a wood burning cast iron stove but is designed to be inserted or inset into the 'firebox' of an existing or newly built fireplace mantle/surround
It is mandatory for new fireplaces in most of Europe to be fitted with clean burning appliances
But the biggest advantage Fireplace Insets (or cassettes) have, they have over an open or a standard indoor fireplace. Insets are fabricated in Grade A heavy duty Cast Iron and are far more efficient (3-4 times, in term of the heat that radiates indoors) and it's technical design is such that the fire draws extremely well and combustion can be controlled using extremely well designed Air Inputs that strategically inject air/oxygen where it's needed most.
If you have a farm, resort, home or cottage in the hills or even in the colder cities in the plains - this is a must buy. The only thing you may miss is that an open fireplace soothes your audio sense with it's crackle! The saving grace is that if you want to hear the crackle and radiate more heat directly into the room you can open the glass door and then it's just like an open fireplace
