Nothing can replace the warm embrace of an optimized fire burning in a real wood fireplace insert. A wood fire gives off a special kind of warmth that penetrates and soothes, and while it’s true that burning wood in your fireplace isn’t as convenient as burning gas, like all of life’s best things that little extra effort makes a world of difference.
Just like Sunday dinner doesn’t come out of a can and the finest wine doesn’t come out of a box, a real fire doesn’t come out of a pipeline. If it’s a real fire…it’s wood. And if it’s a clean burning efficient wood fire with an EPA certification… it’s probably an exceptional RSF wood burning fireplace insert.
So come in, relax, kick off your shoes and leave your frantic life at the door. Experience the calming beauty of RSF fireplaces and a real wood fire.
Step 2 of the 2015, the New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for New Residential Wood Heaters came into effect May 15, 2020 and requires that the best wood burning fireplace heaters must be certified to discharge particulate matter within an average of 2.5 g/hr. The EPA’s new single burn rate wood stove and fireplace category created an opportunity for RSF’s engineers to design a superior kind of wood burning fireplace that would operate continuously in a “sweet spot” which produces both minimal emissions, ample heat and a visually striking fire. RSF’s exclusive bimetallic air damper constantly regulates combustion air supply to keep the fireplace insert burning in the optimal range with no low and/or high burns to increase the emissions or prematurely burn through your wood pile.
With the first fully automatic fireplace air damper, you’ll have nothing to adjust for the best possible fireplace burn other than the size of your wood load.
Environmental mission and strategy (ESG)
The cleanest fires are achieved with lots of secondary combustion which is when the fire is most visually appealing.
RSFs bimetallic air damper continuously regulates combustion supply and can heats upward of 3,000 square feet and are EPA certified to burn as clean as 1.4 grams per hour. The RSF Opel Plus series has taken the Opel family of catalytic fireplaces to the next level. EPA certified at 0.7g/hr makes the Opel Plus one of the most advanced and cleanest units available on the market today, yet it still maintains its classic styling.
