Firemizer – The Fuel Saving Device

The Firemizer Can Reduce Your Solid Fuel Bill

Most of you will know that I live in the rural countryside, in beautiful Suffolk. But what many don’t know is that we are not hooked up to the national grid, and so rely on heating oil and our fireplace to warm our home during the colder months.

Like with anyone, I am always looking for ways to save money. But making savings for heating is pretty difficult since there are no switching providers like you do with gas.It also gets really cold here in the winter, meaning we get through firewood pretty quick.

So when Firemizer got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out their product, of course, I bit their hand off!

About The Firemizer

The Firemizer is a unique device that is designed to help save solid fuel. It’s made of a blend of stainless steel allows that are patented and welded together to create a flexible grid. When placed in the hearth of a fire or stove, it has been scientifically proven to reduce the burn rate of your fuel.

I’m all about saving money where possible and using products that can be recycled or reused. Because the Firemizer is made from stainless steel, it can be recycled at the end of its life, along with things like my safety razor blades.

The Firemizer lasts around 500 burn hours, which is equivalent to 6 weeks use at 12hrs per day. It has also been independently tested by the University of Cambridge, the University of Nottingham, Kiwa GASTEC and OMNI test laboratories to prove that when used, fires burn up to 38% less fuel and also produce up to 57% less creosote. It’s also won several awards.

Money saving wise, they claim these savings:

  • Weekly Fuel Bill Without Firemizer £50 – reduced to £34 with Firemizer

  • Weekly Fuel Bill Without Firemizer £100 – reduced to £67 with Firemizer

  • Weekly Fuel Bill Without Firemizer £150 – reduced to £101 with Firemizer

The Firemizer - How Much Will I Save?

Using The Firemizer

The delivery of the Firemizer was very prompt, which fit right through my letterbox easily. When I opened the parcel, I was a bit worried about the size which is 180mm x 420mm. It was a lot bigger than our hearth. But reading on the box, I found out that I can cut to fit. The fit doesn’t have to be exact but should cover most of the base.

I won’t lie, I was skeptical. And also annoyed that I hadn’t heard about this until recently. We really could have done with this at the beginning of the last winter. Because goodness knows, we got through firewood so fast.

Using it was easy. Once cut to size, I placed it on top of the grate, and then added my kindling as usual, before adding the bigger logs. Usually the fire darts all over the place. But with the Firemizer, the wood burns evenly. It actually made the fire look really pretty, if that’s even a thing! You can check out my YouTube video to see the difference it made to my fire.

Final Thoughts

I am always honest with you guys, and I cannot testify to the burn hours myself because simply put, it’s Spring. We aren’t burning firewood as much as we would during the Autumn and Winter. But, I can tell you that yes, it absolutely has increased the burn time of our firewood, and stopped smaller pieces of the firewood from falling through the grate. It’s also made cleaning out the ashpan a much more pleasant experience.

The Firemizer retails at £19.99. For more information or to purchase, please hop over to the Firemizer website.

    So does it just limit air flow to the fire? Does it work in stoves or just open fires? I shall have to research more x never heard of this so thanks x

      It works in woodburners, so not just open fires. Yes – the mesh restricts the airflow for a slower, more even burn x

    That’s really interesting. We have a wood burning stove as a back up if we lose power and this would be nice.

    Oh wow, I didn’t even know something like this existed, but it seems like such a brilliant idea!

      Me either! I really do wish we’d known sooner because seriously, we got through sooo much firewood. We’d have saved a lot of money if we’d known. I hope others with woodburners/fireplaces etc hear through this post and save money!

    It sounds like it has potential. I would be interested to get your feedback after a winter using it.

      We’re moving to a cottage with 2 HUGE open fires, in a few days. Hoping to open the chimneys back up and use it this winter!
