As the days get shorter and the nights colder, there is nothing nicer than relaxing in front of a fire. And whether you’re hosting a dinner party or just trying not to freeze while sitting on your patio, ParcHaus director Tanja Schneider shares one of the best ways to heat yourself, but not the planet.

As humans, we have always been fascinated by fire. The ParcHaus Cube Pellet Burner takes this fascination to a new level. Discover the world’s most modern smokeless outdoor fireplace – a compact burner with patented technology – a gravity-fed wood pellet burner that results in a beautiful, high flame without any smoke.

Its compact design and the option to fit the Cube with a wheelset means that moving the heater around your patio is easy and convenient – allowing you to create heat in all the right spaces.

The ParcHaus pellet heater range is not only good-looking, but it uses wood pellets, giving you a 100% natural wood flame without smoke or smell. It is therefore both efficient and eco-friendly. It relies on renewable resources for fuel, which no gas, coal or oil furnaces can claim.

Wood pellets are carbon-neutral renewable fuel, mostly made from 100% organic waste such as wood – cut-offs, sawdust and shavings – without any adhesive additives. Wood pellets are easy, safe and take up very little space to store, but also the most cost-efficient way to heat. With running cost savings of up to 60% vs gas or electric heaters, the ParcHaus pellet heater is the best way to create both ambience and heat.

So how does the pellet heater actually work? The patented burner allows smokeless burning of wood pellets without any electricity. The construction of this hi-tech burner is only achieved in Austria by being able to precision-cut parts within millimetres of tolerance.

The construction of the ParcHaus Cube Pellet Burner allows for controlled burning. This means that the radius and height of the flame are precisely defined and are always the same. This burning technique reduces the amount of sparks by 99%. The intelligent airflow lets the floor of the heater remain cool while heating only the sides of the heater.

The burn chamber can be filled with up to 3.5kg of wood pellets – resulting in a total heating time of up to six hours (approximately three hours of visible flame phase with another three hours of glowing phase).

The ParcHaus Cube Pellet Burner is beautifully designed, functional and efficient. Elegance and practicality are no contradiction; they make the heater what it is: an extraordinary eye-catcher with a warm heart.
