This combination boiler, glass fronted fire place insert combines the ambience of a real log fire with constant warmth provided by wood fired hydronic heating.
The Sophel is as much at home in a stately drawing room as it is in the family room of a country homestead or an ultra modern living area. See the pictures below for some installation examples
The Sophel has a combined heat output that will warm up to 400 m2 (40 Squares) of living area and supply hot water for the family's domestic needs.
The easy to operate air controls allow for total control over the fire and heat available to keep the home comfortable and warm while ensuring efficient even combustion throughout the huge firebox. The air controls are available in a chrome or black finish.
The large capacity firebox not only provides for generous heat output but also allows for extended burn times between refuelling. An ash tray system allows for easy and clean removal of ash even if the Sophel is in operation.
A fire poker and multifunction tool are provided with the unit to help make operation easier.
The Sophel is designed to provide rich radiant slow combustion heat into the room in which it is installed while delivering gentle even warmth via wall mounted radiators or in-floor hydronic heating coils to each room in the home.
Temperatures in each area of the home can be individually regulated and doors can be closed for privacy as the heat source is within each room and heating is not reliant on air flow.
Hydronic heating eliminates draughts and vastly reduces airborne dust which can be created by some fan driven ducted systems.
The standard Sophel has a single acting glass firebox door which opens like any standard heater door to allow for refuelling and tending of the fire. The firebox door is designed with its own air inlets to help the door remain clean and extend the time between cleaning.
This Sophel combines all the features of the standard boiler with the option of using the unit as an open fire when entertaining or for those quiet romantic evenings when the charm and crackle of an open fire creates just the right ambience. The double acting door not only works as a standard fire box door but also unclips so that the door and the door frame lifts up and disappears behind the fascia revealing the entire firebox as a warm glowing open fire.
Sophel Duo – a two sided unit which is ideally suited for installation between two rooms or as a central feature within a single space.
The Sophel Duo is a double sided heater which has two huge glass doors and is ideally suited for installation between two rooms or as a central feature within a room.
The Duo comes with a standard single acting door on one side and a double acting door (for open fire effect) on the other side.
The unit has air controls on both sides and so can be refuelled and controlled from either side. The Sophel Duo is also available with two standard single acting doors if the open fire effect is not required.
The fire box surround allows the Sophel to be installed without the need to build a purpose built enclosure and can be more suitable for some homes and can save on installation cost. The kit is available in a range of designer colours to suit specific colour schemes if required and is available for both the single and double sided Sophel
As with all Dynamic series boilers & cookers the Sophel can be successfully employed to provide or supplement the family's domestic hot water requirements, either by way of a special purpose built Solar Mio hydronic hot water tank or Solar Mio heat exchanger to convert existing hot water services.
For those who appreciate the delights of a wood fired roast, pizzas and bread or just want billy tea or brewed coffee, all Sophel's can be optioned with a cooking Crane and accessories to make the Sophel truly the most versatile heating appliance on the market.
The Sophel can be installed in many different ways, and providing than certain installation criteria is met such as clearances to combustible materials the design is up to your own imagination.
