The (tiled) fireplace stove
… is a modern version of the open fireplace, but with significantly better heating properties. The crucial difference lies in the integrated heating box in which the fire is concealed behind a glass pane. Because the fire only receives as much combustion air as necessary, much higher temperatures are generated in the combustion chamber. What is more, a fireplace stove generally has large exterior surfaces which heat up, store the heat, and radiate it into the room.
