What is Dynamic Heat Control™?

It’s never been easier to heat your home with a fireplace thanks to Napoleon’s innovative Dynamic Heat Control™ System. This system allows homeowners to design and build their space, completely integrating a fireplace into the décor with true zero clearance to combustible materials. The Dynamic Heat Control™ System manages heat produced by the fireplace by expelling it safely and efficiently into the areas of the home that you wish to heat. This means that the temperature directly above the fireplace is drastically reduced and safely distributed, allowing for the safe installation of electronics or fine art directly above the fireplace. Thanks to the Dynamic Heat Control™ System fireplace installation possibilities are endless.


How Does the Dynamic Heat Control™ System Work?

By allowing heat to effectively circulate within the space created for it. The functionality of the Dynamic Heat Control™ System relies on optimized airflow throughout both the appliance and the structure housing the fireplace. When the fireplace is turned on, the Dynamic Heat Control™ System draws room air into the air inlet located at the bottom of the glass (or top of the safety barrier on Vector™ models). The award-winning glass guard system on the Luxuria™ Gas Fireplace creates two air channels between the firebox and outer glass serving to redirect the radiant heat back into the fireplace. As the heat created by the fireplace rises, it is drawn through micro chimneys, which pulls more cool air into the fireplace. The rising hot air is pulled into an air passage, which distributes the heat through the Dynamic Heat Control™ System outlet. This outlet can be at the top of the fireplace enclosure (see Fig.1 through 4) and allows the hot air to circulate into the room for a consistent and comfortable temperature. The Dynamic Heat Control™ System allows for heat to be redirected or vented into adjacent rooms in the home as well.



Stopping shy of the ceiling at the top allows rising hot air to escape freely from the top of the enclosure and into the same room as the fireplace.



Uses an air outlet opening at the top of the enclosure that is built-in at the top, centered above the appliance. This allows the heat to escape into the same room as the fireplace.



Stopping shy of the ceiling at the top the fireplace enclosure has a decorative valance built-in. Rising hot air can escape between the valance and the opening at the top, heating the same room as the fireplace.



This style of the enclosure includes an air outlet opening that will be built into the rear of the constructed enclosure, at the top, centered above the appliance. This outlet directs heat into an adjacent room in the home, heating it.



What does Dynamic Heat Control™ mean for you?

Napoleon’s Dynamic Heat Control™ System reduces the temperature above the fireplace unit making it safe for the installation of artwork and electronics when previously it would have been a risky endeavor. This reduction in temperature also ensures that there is increased comfort from even heat distribution. The heat from the fireplace is moved into the room instead of retained in the fireplace enclosure, which is done without the use of ducts, manifolds, or blowers.
