Renaissance Rumford 1000 Clean-Burning Wood Fireplace

Come see the Rumford 1000 Wood Burning Fireplace installed and operational in our Ottawa Showroom!

The Renaissance Rumford™ model was the world’s first certified open-door Clean-Burning Wood Fireplace. The design is taken from a true Rumford fireplace, designed by Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, an Anglo-American physicist best known for his investigations of heat, making it much taller than a traditional wood fireplace. The shape of a Rumford Wood Burning Fireplace is renowned for an unparalleled level of high efficiency performance in an open wood fireplace. The patented Rumford fireplace design has taken the traditional elements of a Rumford fireplace to the next level thanks to custom engineering, precision manufacturing, and quality materials.

The Rumford Advantage

True Rumford fireplaces have a very specific shape. Features include a shallow firebox, angled sides, and a curved throat. The curved throat section of the Rumford model creates laminar airflow into the chimney flue and reduces air turbulence in the firebox. The results are a strong draft, easy lighting, and no smoke in the home, and a Clean-Burning Wood Fireplace.

A Stack of Awards

The Renaissance Rumford Clean-Burning Wood Fireplace model is the only fireplace in history to win an award from the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It has also earned itself design awards from the International Interior Design Expo (IIDEX) and its patented design has received innovation awards from the fireplace industry (Vesta).
