So, how do we select the best fireplaces in Denver?
According to Lehrer Fireplace and Patio sales experts, a good fireplace must meet the following conditions:

This is one of the essential details to check when looking around for a fireplace. You can find wood or gas fireplaces with thermal power between 5 and 25 kW.
Calculation of the power requirements:
Calculate the volume of the room (length x width x height). Depending on the house’s insulation, the volume is divided by an insulation coefficient (10, 15, 20), as follows: for a very well-insulated home: 20, medium thermal insulation: 15, low thermal insulation: 10.
Example of calculation:
For a house with a volume of 100 m³ and medium thermal insulation, you will need a fireplace of about 6 KW (100:15).
The thermal power for electric fireplaces is the same as the power absorbed from the network (1500 W, 2000 W, 2500 W, etc.).
