Heating your home while reducing your fuel bill is one of the key features of the Flue Cube Chimney Cowl; in some cases burning up to 50% less wood. Which means you save money and help the environment. On an open fire it is still an effective anti-downdraft cowl and will stop smoke blow back.
Both old and new wood burners will greatly benefit having the FlueCube chimney cowl, producing less soot and smoke, while burning hotter and using less wood.
The Flue Cube uses both hot air from the firebox and cold air from the inversion layer above the cowl. The two air pressures mix in a chamber above
the flue outlet, forming a mini cyclone. This cyclone creates a self-generating, perpetual vacuum and acts as a unidirectional pressure lowering device. It brings the fire to its optimum
heat achieving a state of stable thermal efficiency, while preventing soot and smoke blowing out when opening the woodburner door.
Any smoke or particulate matter not burned in the firebox is compressed within the cyclone chamber. This is optimised by both the cold air intakes above and below the cowl. Once the cyclone establishes, the fire is largely soot and smoke free.
The EU recognises the importance of reducing pollutants such as soot and smog, as part of their long-term climate strategy. Wood is a sustainable
resource, making it an environmentally friendly option for heating your home, and burning wood is a carbon-neutral activity.
Reduce Problems From Neighbors
Neighbors can sometimes be effected by smoke and soot from chimneys. The flue cube is designed to dilute the gases before leaving the cowl, causing less smoke to be dispelled from your flue.
