Earth’s Flame™ now available for factory built or masonry wood-burning fireplaces
Durango, CO – October 7, 2010 Independent studies estimate that the 37 million households in the United States with one or more fireplaces emit a total of 50,000 – 70,000 tons of harmful pollutants every year. The source of these pollutants has not gone unnoticed as fireplaces are being banned and their use limited across the U.S. Earth’s Flame™ introduces a retrofit grate for wood-burning fireplaces that are the cleanest burning open-hearth retrofit in the industry! Available today, this made-in-Colorado fireplace grate brings long-awaited improvements for the fireplace industry.
With 55 years in the hearth industry, this family and female-owned and operated business wants to keep alive the American tradition of families gathering around an open-hearth, wood-burning fireplace. At the same time, Earth’s Flame™ protects the environment and provides the user with noticeable improvements in overall fireplace performance.
The Industry Spoke
Earth’s Flame™’s green attributes and innovative qualities won the coveted 2010 VESTA Green Award at the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Expo. The award praised the product’s innovation in design and technology for significantly reducing emissions in wood-burning fireplaces.
Guilt-free, environment-friendly fires: Burn Green, Breathe Clean!
This new hybrid retrofit for pre-fabricated and masonry wood-burning fireplaces features a gas-enhanced combustion system combined with an emission-reducing grate. Earth’s Flame™ (patent pending) can be retrofit into almost any fireplace. Proudly made in the USA of 304 Stainless Steel construction that ensures the reduction of pollutant emissions with the same efficiency over the entire lifespan of Earth’s Flame™. The unique design addresses the “Three Ts” of good combustion: Time, Temperature and Turbulence. Earth’s Flame™ starts with a Blue Flame™ Log Lighter underneath the fire grate that creates a rapid and sustained ignition of the wood diminishing the initial smoke when a fire is lit. The refractory plate above the fire keeps combustion gases in the fireplace longer for more complete combustion. The refractory plate also prevents gases and particles from going straight up the chimney and creates turbulence. The resulting fire has reduced harmful emissions.
As part of our corporate responsibility mission, Earth’s Flame™ has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to help replenish the forests. We are donating trees on behalf of our retailers for each unit ordered. Earth’s Flame™ will be exhibiting at the American Lung Association “Run for the Rocks” in Denver October 10, 2010 and the Green Festival, in San Francisco, November 6 – 7, 2010.
