The Science behind Magnum Fires

Convection vs. Radiation

The first law of Thermodynamics states: “Energy can never be created nor destroyed, only altered in form”

What does this mean to you?
Unfortunately it means that the heat produced from your home’s heating will eventually escape.

On the bright side, it also means we have choices. These choices can determine how we heat and insulate our homes.

Radiating heat from a source blasts heat in all and every direction, it can be argued this is an inefficient way to heat a living space. Convection, on the other hand, heats up the air above and around a heat source and this warm air rises. This creates a circular motion, or current, in your lounge that keeps the temperature consistent.

That’s why at Crighton we design and produce efficient wood-burning fires that work on the principle of convecting heat throughout your chosen space.

Why Magnum Wood Burners?

Throughout history fire has been significant to us as a source of heat, a means for cooking and the centre of many families and communities. Nothing beats the crackle and roar of a wood-burning fire. With fuel sources becoming scarce and costs rising, wood-burning fires are now the future of sustainable, cost effective home heating.

The Environment – Burning a Golden Path Toward a Sustainable Future

Not only is wood one of the most cost effective ways to heat your home, it is also one of the world’s most sustainable, renewable and carbon neutral resources.

Engaging innovative technology to maximise heat output while meeting ‘Clean Air’ environmental regulations, the attractive Magnum range will complete the look of any home.
