By replacing standard cast iron grates to this new stainless steel system there is less smoke going into the homes. Save on Health care costing with health risks associated with inhaling wood smoke.
This is the ONLY retrofit with proven test results of a 60% reduction in the Carbon Monoxide and increase in the fireplace draft by 76%. Wood smoke can be a significant source of fine particulate matter pollution, plus it contains toxic air contaminants. Health studies link fine particulate matter to serious health problems including decreased lung function, aggravated asthma, irregular heartbeat and premature death. Vulnerable groups include people with existing heart and lung disease, the young and the elderly. Protect your family, neighbors and community from wood smoke and decrease the Health risks.
