  • Details

    The Spitfire Hearth Heater was developed to dramatically increase convection heat (hot air) coming from your fireplace. The unique design of this grate heater super heats the air within the exchanger tubes to over 400 degrees F and will produce up to 35,000+ BTUs of heat; enough to heat a large room! The Spitfire Heater has a smaller profile than our other tube style heaters and is able to fit into smaller fireplaces. It's super easy to install; simply assemble the blower on the tubes, seal it with the supplied silicone sealer, and place into your fireplace.

    The Spitfire Hearth Heater features heavy-gauge aluminized steel tubes for long life. The blower is connected to the grate by means of a flexible tube which allows the blower to be positioned in front of the fireplace opening. Measures: 7" High x 14 1/2" Deep; 19" Wide.

    Must be used with the blower to cool properly. In the case of a power outage you will need to remove the unit from your fireplace before lighting a fire.

    Features:

    • Low cost
    • Ease to install
    • Fits small fireplaces
    • Compact 2 speed blower (30 CFM - Low, 50 CFM - High)
    • Reduces home heating costs by up to 50%
    • Blower may be connect to either side of the unit
    • Turns your fireplace into a heat producing furnace
    • Made of aluminized steel for long life
    • Pays for itself in one season!
    • High customer satisfaction
    • 3 Year limited warranty

    Product Note: The product can be used with gas logs. However, the only time this product would be able to be used with gas is if the burner is able to fit under the unit.

    BEFORE YOU BURN: There will be a smell on the first burn as the oil in the tubes will burn off. This is normal. WARNING: If you have birds and animals in the house. They should be removed from the house on the first burn. People that are asthmatic and children should also not be in the area during the first burn.

      Awesome improvement of heat output of my little gas fireplace

      Posted by Hanno Richter on Dec 7th 2020

      It really works. I ordered the Spitfire Fireplace Heater after I had done substantial research on this topic and on similar units, and I even considered building my own heat exchanger. I decided to chip out 600+ bucks for this one because it was the best looking I found and the only one that would fit into my small fireplace. I figured that buying the material and the tools plus my time and potential failures when trying to build it myself would justify this investment. With free shipping it arrived 4 days after I had ordered it, much earlier than projected (1 month) , and I live in San Francisco, so that was superfast. Setting it up took me half an hour. Connecting the aluminum hose to the stainless steel tubing and to the blower unit was easy. I used aluminum foil instead of the provided silicone grease to tighten the fit since I figured that this would be more heat resistant and less messy in case I want to disassemble it again. Turns out it's tight enough. I let the first burn last the entire night with the damper of my fireplace all the way open, several windows in the house open and doors to the bedrooms closed, because there was indeed a nasty smell from the oil in the tubing as stated on the website. Here is one point of criticism to the manufacturer: Why don't they burn off the oils BEFORE they ship the device to customers ? Why are there oils anyway ? Anyhow, now it's the next day, the oils have burnt off, my house does not smell any longer and the device works sooo great !!! It's awesome ! They advertise it with up to 35,000 BTU/h (about 10 kW), and I'd say it easily replaces 4 electric space heaters with 1.5 kW each in terms of heat output. My Livingroom is big, probably 30 m2 or about 330 ft2, and my little gas fireplace which before was basically doing almost nothing to heat the room, except putting out light and a little radiant heat for ambience, is now heating the big livingroom, plus the dining area and the kitchen, and warm air even goes up the stairs to the rooms in the 2nd floor. This morning, the temperature was 62 Fahrenheit after the night burning with open windows. Now, a couple hours after closing the windows and shutting off the heating component of the central air heating completely (I am still running the fan, so air gets circulated through the entire condo), I am at 72-75 F in the livingroom (close to the fireplace it's 75), and 70F in the kitchen, and even 70F upstairs !!! My only "concern" is now how long the device will last, will it burn through over time ? But I've put "concern" in quotation marks because the tubing IS really heavy-duty as advertised. It is not as thick and heavy as it looks in the picture, because they use caps at the front ends which make the tubing appear to be like 1/2 an inch or 1 cm thick. It isn't, but it is still an estimated 2mm thick (I did not measure). This design features a large interior surface area for heat exchange, and longer retention of air inside the unit. I measured the temperature of the air leaving the Unit with a digital Turkey Thermometer, the probe placed right in front of the tube outlets, it was about 180 C Celsius (360 F). I am sitting in my now cozy living room, about 2m away from the fire, at 74 F (I estimate it would be about 66F without heating) and I could not be happier. Kudos to the company for building this awesome devfice ! And thank you for saving me so much time and effort building it myself. Oh, I forgot to mention the blower: It is nicely built, a black metal box that feels heavy and not flimsy. Air output is decent, there are 2 settings, it's not exactly quiet in the higher setting, but it's also not SUPER loud. I am planning on watching a movie tonight on the high setting, it's not too annoying, maybe I'll turn up the TV volume a bit. So, I think it could still be improved, but I acknowledge it won't be very easy because one can't have high air flow with zero noise, at least probably not at this price. Overall, I definitely don't regret my purchase and I recommend this to anyone who has a fireplace that only sucks heat out of their house like mine did.
