Should I choose a cast iron fireplace?

Cast iron fireplaces are made by pouring melted iron into a mould and sealing the joints between the panels with bolts and caulk. This durable material ensures longevity as it is robust and durable. Although cast iron is slow to heat up, it retains its heat slightly longer than plate steel. Cast iron allows a fireplace to be more efficient in heating a room and keeps the variation in temperature stable. Cast iron is also perfectly suited to stand up to extremely high temperatures which makes it a popular material in fireplace construction. Dovre also make use of ‘Cleanburn’ technology to ensure optimum combustion efficiency.

Cast iron fireplace designs allow a variety of styles to choose from and are typically more contemporary in the look and feel of a freestanding model. Although cast iron fireplaces can tolerate high heat and temperature fluctuations for long periods, the drawback of this material is that replacement parts are costly. This cost can be attributed to the fact that individual models have their own master patterns for casting parts.

The ability of cast iron to withstand high temperatures and temperature fluctuations makes it a valuable material which is used in the manufacturing of wood burning stoves. The variation in Dovre’s designs allow for décor lovers to match their look and feel of their interior to beautiful fireplaces. Cast iron hearths are able to disperse heat efficiently which makes this material a popular choice in fireplace design and manufacturing.

Wood as a fireplace fuel

The appeal of logs crackling in a fireplace is one that will not soon disappear. The visual aesthetic appeal of flames coming off logs has long been synonymous with comfort and luxury in fireplaces. Closed wood burning combustion fireplaces offer this option, but certain considerations should be met.
  1. Never use wet wood as this causes a fireplace to smoke unnecessarily, blackens windows with soot, drops the heat output and requires double the amount of wood to burn.
  2. Use only very dry and well-seasoned wood.
  3. Use reliable and well-known firelighters and chopped kindling to start a fire.
  4. Never use liquid fuels, tarred wood, fine coal, pallets etc. to start a fire.
  5. Never use your fireplace to get rid of documentation or waste.
Hard woods such as maple, birch, poplar and oak burn well. Dry and dense woods are the best option for long burning fires. Never use greenwood, driftwood, poisonous wood, plywood or chipboard to burn in your fireplace.
