WiFi Fireplace, Seriously!

Designed with intelligent mobility in mind, fireplace manufacturer Escea’s handsome new line of gas fireplaces give users the ability to control all aspects of the fireplace directly from their iPhone or Android smart phone.  Simply download the app and in a jiffy you can control the temperature, flame, and manage the timer. Like the ultra wide, see-through DX1500 model featured here, the line is not only smart but incredibly stylish!

    WHAT!? This is actually the promotional material released by the manufacturer?!? The ducting animations make absolutely NO sense.
    To the manufacturer: Hot air rises, cold air falls. Placing a heat exhaust vent in the ceiling of a room is ridiculous. The idea of having a power venting solution that draws cold (blue) air not only from the top of the room (where all the warm air sits), but from directly beside a hot air exhaust vent, is ludicrous. There’s no way any sensible person would give this system a five star efficiency rating, unless that’s five out of one hundred.
    Furthermore, the company’s US sales manager claims the EF5000 outdoor model produces “100% efficient heat”. What!? Claiming 100% efficiency is insulting to anyone within earshot.
    I hope this company is banking on their target market having an inversely proportional ratio of wealth-to-intelligence, otherwise they’re building their own funeral pyre.
    Wow. Just Wow.

  • Wow>> what a fabulous design>> I want one…

    @Tim: You know what you just did? You just insulted someone because you thought they were insulting someone. That’s stupid. The only one insulted here is you. It’s good that you can point out flaws in the design, but keep your negative opinions to yourself.

    10-4, Jimmy.
    Thanks for the reality check.

    Tim,
    introducing warm air into a room via roof mounted vents is a practice used in almost all commercial buildings worldwide and millions of homes around the world. It words just fine.
    The power vent pulls in its cold air from outside, not inside close to the outlets, hence you must have misunderstood the diagram.
    The 5 star efficiency rating is given by an independent test lab and certified by a legally appointed national body.
    The outdoor fire is 100% efficient because it has no flue, hence 100% of the heat comes out the front. Electric heaters are also 100% efficient for the same reason.
