Are you reading this article on your cell phone right now? Increasingly present in our day-to-day life, technology has enabled such commonplace actions once impossible. Fireplaces have also followed a rapid transformation to become powerful, functional and innovative appliances. From cell phone control to air wash system, these features are just a few examples of fireplaces developments.
Your Gas Fireplace on Your Cell Phone
No more remote control needed. Your cell phone becomes the main control tool of your appliance thanks to Napoleon's eFIRE app. Using the August 2017 version, you can now manage everything from your screen. You can turn on your gas fireplace for a certain period of time, without having to worry about turning it off after a while, by setting the timer. You can even adjust the flame height, the ambient lights,and the blower speed. Some other features are also available; the on/off function is only one of them.
Easy-Light Function for Wood Fireplaces
Wood Fires need air to light up and remain lit. That is where the easy-light function, a Supreme’s patented technology, comes in. When activated, this device can blow additional air into the fireplace via the ashtray grate. Lighting a fire has never been easier and faster.
Air Wash System for Wood Fireplaces
Probably few of you like to clean. Canadian fireplaces manufacturers Supreme and Enerzone found a solution. They designed an air wash system keeping your appliance’s glass doors clean during combustion. How does it work? The key lies in the pre-heated air directed onto the glass thus preventing soot accumulation.
Water and Fire as Allies
Water and fire do not usually go well together. Hearth Products Controls (HPC) has succeeded to bring them together in its outdoor model Evolution 360 Fire and Water. Once properly installed, the appliance operates with three switches controlling the fire pit, the water, and the LED lights. Another interesting technological function is its automatic filling system that adds more water when necessary. The appliance is also equipped with a sensor aimed to detect when the level of water is too low, thus protecting the pump from any potential damage.
Heat Two Rooms at A Time
Have you ever heard of Napoleon's new CLEARion™ See Through Electric Fireplace? The appliance’s innovative functions include an individual heating control for each of the two rooms on each side of the fireplace.
