A tile fireplace with a DPD system or a traditional tile fireplace?

A tile fireplace is a term which has two different meanings. However, customers often use this name not distinguishing between these two terms. Having a fireplace, the surround of which is made of tiles, they boast to their friends and acquaintances about having a tile fireplace, which is not entirely true. On the other hand, tiles can perform the same function as they used to in the case of old-fashion, granny's stove, in which tiles acted as a heat accumulator and produced heat long after the fire was put out. Which is a better option to choose from?

When choosing a tile fireplace, you may consider two options: either a tile fireplace with a modern heating system DPD or a traditional tile fireplace. Each solution has both its own advantages and disadvantages. All we need to do is to decide which alternative to opt for.

Tile fireplaces with DPD system
DPD system (or a hot air distribution system) is a popular solution for anyone who aims to heat all their house. DPD system distributes heat by means of aluminium pipes while the heated air is blown to other rooms of the house. A tile fireplace with DPD system is equipped with a fireplace insert with thermal insulation. Owing to such a solution, most energy is absorbed by air and fireplace tiles perform an aesthetic function only.
Traditional tile fireplaces
The furnace of a traditional tile fireplace is usually built of bricks and chamotte slabs. The case of an insert is not insulated well enough and as a result the heated air is accumulated in the case instead of being blown directly into the room. All energy accumulated in the case is gradually freed over a few or a dozen hours and distributed evenly in the room, which reduces the number of loads of wood into the fireplace. We save both time and fuel.
One big disadvantage of a traditional tile fireplace is a small area it can heat, which is limited only to the space around a fireplace. In more remote rooms, the functioning of a fireplace is disrupted and it is not as effective as in the case of a fireplace with DPD system.
Tile fireplaces - modernity, economy and style.
