Hydrogen-Burning Fireplace 100% Efficient
Ushering in the next generation of hearth products after wood, natural gas and liquid propane, Hearth + Home Technologies (Booth W1159) will be exhibiting a hydrogen-burning fireplace at the International Builders’ Show this week in Orlando, Fla.
The Heat & Glo™ Aqueon™ hydrogen-burning fireplace is the world’s first commercially available in-home hydrogen appliance, according to the manufacturer.
Hydrogen is the most abundant and lightest element in the universe, and the colorless, odorless and tasteless gas has the highest energy content per unit of weight of any known fuel. Hydrogen is non-toxic; when released into the air, it is not poisonous and dissipates quickly, becoming so sparse that it cannot burn. When it is burned, the gas produces no harmful pollutants, emitting only pure water and heat.
“Hydrogen’s promise as a clean alternative energy source continues to gain momentum as government and industry invest in exploring practical ways to tap its full potential,” said Brad Determan, president of Hearth & Home Technologies.
“As the hearth industry’s innovation leader, our Heat & Glo brand is helping cultivate a hydrogen economy by pushing technological and design boundaries to develop home products like Aqueon,” he said. “Since hydrogen fuel burns cleanly, the Aqueon doesn’t require any venting or a sealed glass front. It provides the healthiest way to enjoy an open flame and also eliminates the potential for heat loss from the home, giving home owners 100% efficiency.”
Hearth + Home Technologies is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Supplier 100 of NAHB.
