So…How are fireplace heat outputs measured?
The amount of heat released by a fireplace is measured in Kilowatts. (KWs)
To heat a 3m X 3m room with 3m high ceilings during the winter requires approximately 4.40kws and a 6m x 6m room would require approximately 10.54kws
NOTE: These are simply guidelines; due to a large variety of conditions consult your local fireplace expert to find the proper kws required for your space.
How hot does a gas fireplace get?
Although it varies greatly, Regency’s gas fireplaces typically produce between 6.1kws and 10.8kws enough to heat an apartment or a mid to large room.
How hot does a wood fireplace get?
The amount of heat produced by a wood fireplace from Regency varies greatly, however, typical units produce between 7.8kws and 13.3kws, enough to heat any sized room.
