General information about heat accumulating fireplaces

Heat accumulating fireplaces differ from other fireplaces in that they are intended to provide a moderate heat for prolonged periods with a limited time of burning. Conventional fireplaces give off strong heat during the burning period but with a very limited cool-down period.

The heat accumulating fireplaces from Nordpeis have a long duct system where the heat developed in the combustion chamber passes through the duct system before it exits through the chimney. The heat from the gases is absorbed by the material surrounding the smoke ducts, and by the time the smoke exits through the chimney, the temperature is reduced to little over 100 °C (212 ºF). The efficiency of a well-constructed heat accumulating fireplace is thus far better than the efficiency of a conventional fireplace.

A heat accumulating fireplace can keep an even temperature throughout the day with only one heating cycle.

Bypass Damper
When the bypass damper is open the smoke gasses exit directly through the chimney without first travelling through the duct system. This gives far better draught which can be beneficial for lighting a fire when the fireplace and/or the chimney are cold. The bypass damper should only be open during when necessary for short periods (10-15 minutes) at the time a fire is lit, and at new loads, in order to prevent smoke or ash escaping into the room. Persistent combustion with an open bypass damper can result in exceeding the maximum allowed chimney temperature.

Flue Damper
The flue damper seals off the fireplace from the chimney. This is to ensure that as much as possible of the stored heat in the fireplace is emitted to the room and not out of the chimney after the last load in the heating cycle. The damper has a small built-in opening, so even when closed it protects against smoke being produced and released. The flue damper must be open during burning, but can be closed after the last load of firewood has become ember.

Air Vent
When burning in a heat accumulating fireplaces the air vent is traditionally kept open to a maximum. This ensures optimal combustion and minimises carbon deposits in the smoke duct system. In addition it makes it easier to keep the glass clean during intensive burning. However, should one wish for a longer burn period and slower flames, the air vent is adjusted and reduced. Salzburg is equipped with secondary combustion technology, which can normally only be found on modern fireplaces. This ensures clean combustion and high efficiency, even at lower loads. 

Cleaning the Smoke Duct System
When the fireplace is used every day throughout the heating season, we recommend that the smoke duct system is swept once yearly. This is to maintain the draught and efficiency. Soot isolate the ducts and thus lower the efficiency. One can also notice that the draught is reduced and that the flames are difficult to control with the air vent function. Remember that the fireplace must always be cold before it is swept / inspected.

Sweeping of the vertical channels can be executed by removing the Thermotte plates inside the combustion chamber. Behind these, remove the Powerstone lids to access the channels.
Sweeping of the smoke pipe or chimney is done through the top of the product.

Ash and Ash-pan
The ash-pan consists of an inner part which is used for the regular emptying of ashes. The ashes must be emptied periodically. Please note that the ash may contain hot embers even several days after the fire has ceased. Use a container of non-combustible material to remove the ashes.

The home owner must ensure that the floor can withstand the load of the total weight of the product.

Freestanding fireplaces can be installed without a firewall. Observe all safety distances to combustible materials.

Connection to Chimney
Follow specifications from the chimney manufacturer for connection to the chimney. Dry stack the fireplace for accurate height and positioning of the flue/chimney connection.

The product is not compatible with top connected concrete chimney.

Maximum weight of steel chimney (top connection) is 300kg.

By top connection to steel chimney, we refer to the respective manufacturer’s installation instructions.

Requirements for floor plate

Follow the requirements for floor plate (stone, steel, etc.) that apply in the country that the product is installed in.

The outer elements should be glued with the acrylic which is included. Make sure that all the surfaces that are to be glued are free of dust. The surfaces can be cleaned for better adhesion. Ensure that the surfaces are dry before spreading on the acrylic. Once the fireplace is assembled, fill the joints with acrylic and even it out with a sponge or finger and some soapy water, in order to have a clear indentation between the elements (FIG Z).

Minor damage
The fireplace can sustain minor damage during transport and handling. This can be repaired with acrylic/light filler. For perfect results, you can fill and sand with a suitable filler. Minor damage and uneven surfaces can be filled. If the damage is deep or in the event of significant damage, you are recommended to fill repeatedly with tile adhesive or cement putty to avoid sinking. Smooth off with e.g. a damp sponge or a float.

The surface of the chimney surround is developed to be painted without priming work. Use latex or acrylic based paint (emulsion paint), or cement-based textured paint. In the unlikely case that there are some irregularities in the surface, these can be filled with the acrylic which is included, or a light and appropriate filling material. Any surface that has been filled needs to be smoothened with fine sand paper.

If a more traditional and polished surface is wished for, it is recommended to dampen the surround and then cover it with tile adhesive (powder glue) and a fibreglass mesh, prior to possibly adding mortar or mineral polish.

This fireplace can also be partially or completely covered with tiles / natural stone of your choice. As for the section above on “Polishing”, we recommend that the chimney surround is dampened before it is covered with tile adhesive (powder glue) and a fiberglass mesh. This is to ensure good adhesion and prevent the formation of cracks at the joints of the surround.

Please note that the adhesive and mortar must set before burning in the fireplace. Follow the instructions from the mortar/adhesive producers.

Regardless of surface treatment it is advantageous to mask the entire door frame to avoid having to clean it later.

Please note that the air gap between the surround and the door frame must not be filled with glue, mortar or similar.


The insulating plates in the burn chamber (FIG 77b) contribute to a high combustion temperature, which leads to cleaner combustion of the wood and a higher rate of efficiency. Any fissures in the plates will not reduce their insulation efficiency. If new plates are needed, contact your dealer.

Please note: Wood logs that are too long can cause additional strain and crack the plates, due to the tension created between the side plates.

Please also note that the Thermotte™ plates may release coloured dust when touched. Avoid touching any cast iron parts with dust on your fingers. Any visible dust on cast iron can be brushed off with the glove that is included.

Cracks in the i PowerStone
Due to thermal effects there may be small cracks / fissures in the PowerStone. This is natural and does not affect the product’s function or safety.

Door and Glass
Should there be any soot on the glass it may be necessary to clean it. Use dedicated glass cleaner, as other detergents may damage the glass/gaskets. (NB! Be careful, even dedicated glass cleaner can damage the varnish on the door frame/gaskets). A good advice for cleaning the glass is to use a damp cloth or kitchen roll paper and apply some ash from the burn chamber. Rub around the ash on the glass and finish off with a piece of clean and damp kitchen roll paper. NB! Only clean when the glass is cold.

Check regularly that the transition between the glass and the door is completely tight. Possibly tighten the screws that hold the glass in place - but not too hard, as this can cause the glass to crack.

Periodically, it may be necessary to change the gaskets on the door to ensure that the burn chamber is air tight and working optimally. These gaskets can be bought as a set, usually including ceramic glue.

Advice on lighting a fire

Combustion pace A heat storing product should not be burned in too aggressively as this may damage the product. In order to get the most out of a heat storing product, it is therefore important to optimise the combustion pace and the size of the loads. Read the combustion rates and load sizes that apply to your product.

The best way to light a fire is with the use of lightening briquettes and dry kindling wood. Newspapers cause a lot of ashes and the ink is damaging for the environment. Advertising flyers, magazines, milk cartons and similar are not suitable for lighting a fire. Good air supply is important at ignition. When the flue is hot the draught increases and door can be closed.

Warning NEVER use a lighting fuel such as petrol, karosine, alcohol or similar for lighting a fire. This could cause injury to you as well as damaging the product.

Use clean and dry wood with a maximum moisture content of 20% and minimum 16%. The wood logs should dry for a minimum of 6 months after it is cut. Humid wood requires a lot of air for the combustion, as extra energy/heat is required for drying the humid wood and heat effect is therefore minimal. In addition this creates soot in the chimney with the risk of creosote and chimney fire.

Storing of wood
In order to ensure that the wood is dry, the tree should be cut in winter and then stored during the summer, under roof and in a location with adequate ventilation. The wood pile must never be covered by a tarpaulin which is lying against the ground as the tarpaulin will then act as a sealed lid that will prevent the wood from.

Not enough air to the combustion may cause the glass to soot. Hence, supply the fire with air just after the wood is added, so that the flames and gases in the combustion chamber are properly burnt off. Open the air vent and have the door slightly ajar in order for the flames to establish properly on the wood. Note that the air supply for the combustion also can be too large and cause an uncontrollable fire that very quickly heat up the whole combustion chamber to an extremely high temperature (when firing with a closed or nearly closed door). For this reason you should never fill the combustion chamber completely with wood.

Choice of fuel
All types of wood, such as birch, beech, oak, elm, ash and fruit trees, can be used as fuel in the insert. Wood species have different degrees of density - the more dense the wood is, the higher the energy value. Beech, oak and birch has the highest density.

Attention! We do not recommend using fuel briquettes/ compact wood in our products. Use of such fuel may cause the product to overheat and exceed the temperatures determined safe. Burning briquettes/ compact wood is at your own risk and only small amounts (max 1/3 of normal load) should be used for each load.

Warning NEVER use impregnated wood, painted wood, plywood, chipboard, rubbish, milk cartons, printed material or similar. If any of these items are used as fuel the warranty is invalid.
Common to these materials is that they during combustion can form hydrochloric acid and heavy metals that are harmful to the environment, you and the insert. Hydrochloric acid can also corrode the steel in the chimney or masonry in a masonry chimney. Also, avoid firing with bark, sawdust or other extremely fine wood, apart from when lighting a fire. This form of fuel can easily cause a flashover that can lead to temperatures that are too high.

Warning Make sure the insert is not overheated - it can cause irreparable damage to the product. Such damage is not covered by the warranty

Before Installing a new fireplace

Several European countries have local regulations for installation of fireplaces, which change regularly. It is the responsibility of the client that these regulations are complied with in the country/region where the fireplace is installed. Nordpeis AS is not responsible for incorrect installation.

Important to check (please note that this list is not exhaustive):
• distance from firebox to combustible/flammable materials
• insulation materials/requirements between fireplace surround and back wall
• size of floor plates in front of fireplace if required
• flue connection between firebox and chimney
• insulation requirements if flue passes through a flammable wall

Chimney Draft
Compared to older models, the clean burning fireplaces of today put significantly higher demands on the chimney. Even the best fireplace will not work properly if the chimney does not have the right dimensions or is not in good working order. The draught is mainly controlled by gas temperature, outside temperature, air supply as well as the height and inner diameter of the chimney. The diameter of the chimney should never be less than that of the flue/chimney collar. At nominal effect there should be a negative pressure of 12 to 25 Pascal.

The draft increases when:
• The chimney becomes warmer than the outside air
• The active length of the chimney over the hearth increases
• Good air supply to the combustion

It can be difficult to obtain the right draught conditions in case the chimney is too large relative to the fireplace, as the chimney does not heat up well enough. In such cases you may want to contact professional for evaluation of possible measures. Draught that is too strong can be controlled with a damper. If necessary, contact a chimney sweeper. The product is type tested and should be connected to a chimney that is dimensioned for the smoke gas temperature indicated in the CE declaration. When necessary, contact a professional in advance. 

Attention! It is recommended to use a qualified professional when installing a new fireplace.

Measurements (FIG 1)

*The illustration indicates the approximate centre height of the recess for the flue. Consider possible inclination of the flue prior to making perforating the chimney. Distortions in floors and walls may also influence the height, dry stack therefore the fireplace for accurate height and positioning of the flue/chimney connection. If a fresh air supply set (accessory) is connected through the floor, mark where the hole should be.

Attention! Since the inner core is composed of many layers the connection height may vary by up to a few centimeters from installation to installation.

Safety distances (FIG 2)
Ensure that the safety distances are complied with.

In case that the fireplace is placed freestanding without the heat shield in the back, the minimum distance behind to combustible material is 800mm.

IMPORTANT! Drying Process

The fireplace contains a lot of moisture when it is new and no fire has been made before. This moisture must be dried out before the fireplace can withstand the combustion rate given below.

To extract the moisture, follow this procedure:

1. Ensure that the air vent control just below the door is completely open
2. Ensure that the bypass and flue dampers are both open
3. Make a small fire with 1-2 kg of kindling wood
4. Close the bypass damper once the flames have taken proper hold of the wood, this will ensure that the hot smoke circulates the ducts.

This procedure is repeated twice more, with a 24 hrs gap between each time.

NB! Failure to follow the guidelines for drying can cause the elements to crack.

The air vent control is turned to the left to increase the air supply to Salzburg

Combustion pace

An accumulating fireplace is designed to absorb thermal energy during a relatively short period of relatively intense heat. When the period of intensive combustion is completed, the product will deliver the accumulated heat over a longer period of time. The fireplace is designed to reach a surface temperature between 90 and 140C during normal use.

NB! Combustion beyond the recommended pace (see table with Technical Information) will result in a higher surface temperatures, which can lead to discoloration of the paint. It can also result in higher than intended temperatures against combustible walls.

Follow the values in the table to find the correct load size and what loading interval is right for your product.

When the last load has passed into the ember phase with few embers left, the air vent and flue damper are closed to prevent heat escaping through the chimney.

Remember to open the flue damper before making a fire in the fireplace.

The bypass damper should only be open during when necessary for short periods (10-15 minutes) at the time a fire is lit, and at new loads, in order to prevent smoke or ash escaping into the room. Persistent combustion with an open bypass damper can result in exceeding the maximum allowed chimney temperature.

Due to the length of the smoke gas ducts, the fireplace is heated up somewhat unevenly. After lighting a fire, the front above the door and one of the sides will heat up first. The heat will then be evened out after a few hours of burning and when all the ducts have been warmed up.
