Although the sheer beauty of the flames is seductive, most conventional fireplaces are ineffective when it comes to heating. In fact, some fireplaces draw heat out of a room. So how can your love of a good, roaring fire peacefully coexist with the need to keep your house warm? One word: TULIKIVI (TWO-lee-KEE-vee). In Finnish, it literally means "fire stone." In English, it translates into one of the world's most beautiful and efficient ways to heat your house.
Tulikivi fireplaces come in many beautiful designs that will enhance any decor from traditional to contemporary. Standard options, including mantelpieces, benches, bake ovens, and decorative serpentine or roughface stone, make it easy to customize any of the basic models to suit individual heating, cooking, and decorating needs. Heating capacity, which corresponds to the fireplace size, ranges from 750 square feet to almost 2,000 square feet. Choosing the right model depends on the size of the space you want to heat, how your house is insulated and laid out, as well as average seasonal temperatures in your region of the country.

Tulikivi fireplaces are manufactured in Finland. They have been tested both by the company's own laboratory and by well-known, independent testing facilities around the world.
In 2009, Tulikivi incorporated its patented whirlbox technology in all fireplace models. The whirl box is truly a remarkable innovation in which the combustion air that is introduced in the firebox mixes completely with the combustion gases. This feature allows wood to burn more efficiently and cleanly and reduces emissions to meet the world’s strictest standards.
Masonry Heaters are currently exempt from Federal Government Regulations.Tulikivi and the Masonry Heater Association have been working closely with the Environmental Protection Agency and State Air Quality Agencies for years to demonstrate the clean burning characteristics of masonry heaters. If you have any questions about our emissions or efficiency ratings please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an update on our standings with Federal and State Regulators.
"Within the industry, Tulikivi is the leader in utilizing green technology. The introduction of the whirlbox and the CE marking in the entire Tulikivi range is a clear example of this. We are already designing for tomorrow – at full speed." ~Juha Sivonen, Tulikivi Sales Director
