Rumford 1500Owner’s Manual
The Renaissance Rumford™ model was the world’s first certified open-door clean-burning fireplace. The design is taken from a true Rumford fireplace, making it much taller than a traditional fireplace. The shape of a Rumford fireplace is renowned for an unparalleled level of performance. Our patented Rumford design has taken the traditional elements of a Rumford fireplace to the next level thanks to custom engineering, precision manufacturing, and quality materials.
A Stack of Awards
The Renaissance Rumford™ model is the only fireplace in history to win an award from the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It has also earned itself design awards from the International Interior Design Expo (IIDEX) and its patented design has received innovation awards from the fireplace industry (Vesta).
The Rumford Advantage
True Rumford fireplaces have a very specific shape. Features include a shallow firebox, angled sides, and a curved throat. The curved throat section of the Rumford model creates laminar airflow into the chimney flue and reduces air turbulence in the firebox. The results are a strong draft, easy lighting, and no smoke in the home.
Fire Unlike any Other
The fire in a Renaissance Rumford fireplace lights faster and burns brighter than a traditional masonry fireplace.
Renaissance Fireplaces has brought open fireplaces into the 21st century, thanks to decorative fireplaces with emissions so low that there is no visible smoke within two minutes of lighting the fire.
Keeping your Home Airtight
Preventing heat loss from your home is just as important as heating it. Renaissance fireplace doors seal tightly to prevent warm air from escaping up your chimney. Our optional Chimney Top Damper completely seals off the top of the chimney making it ideal for passive homes.
