So, is that 8000 pounds or TL? Make sure, depending on the size that there is a good air supply. It is governed by the fire“s output in KW.

Re: Built-in fire with glass door

Hi Immac, sorry that should say 8000TL not pounds! I think the price reflects the KW of the fire. We've ordered a large 15kw fire as its a big room but could have chosen a 12kw for around 6,000tl (depending on the make / model)
As for installation, we have an existing open fireplace so the supplier is fitting a 20 cm flue up the inside of the chimney breast plus all the necessary insulation. Our fire also has a built in fan to project the heat out into the room. We looked around for about a year and this seemed the most professional company with a very competitive price!

Sounds like you have made a good investment. The next stage is to secure a source of dry wood. This was always a problem for me when we lived in Bodrum.

Re: Built-in fire with glass door

That is a very big fire. You certainly need to make sure you have fresh air coming into the room otherwise you can have big health problems. Google it: there is lots of information on UK sites about the ventilation you need. It is not difficult to do, but Turkish installers may not do it unless you ask

Re: Built-in fire with glass door

Yes IbrahimAbi, I've just posted a question on here regarding where to buy wood in the Bodrum area!

Re: Built-in fire with glass door

Even with a sealed flue I'd make sure you buy some carbon monoxide dectectors

In most Turkish houses I've been in the wood burner is free standing so that it radiates heat from all sides with further heat radiating heat from the flue pipe.

Mine is set into an old fireplace and just isn't as efficient even if less unsightly

Re: Built-in fire with glass door

I would imagine a 15 kW fire will go through tons of wood, that's close on the output of a small central heating system, are you having radiators off it as well ?

I agree, 15KW is a very large fire, we have a 6 KW fitted here in Ireland and that heats kitchen and back lounge, frequently having to open door into rest of house to let the heat escape.

With 15KW you're going to be very warm this winter.

No unfortunately we're not running radiators! Hoping the heat will travel upstairs though lol!
