the fireplace has angled sides to reflect the radiant heat out. If you've eve been by a campfire, or sat in the sun, you know what radiant heat is. It's different from heating the air, which heats your skin. That's called convective heat. Radiant heat comes directly from the source (a fire, or the sun)
they pull your heated air and send it up the chimney. Unless you're heating your house via only a wood stove, let's just not bother talking about efficiency. It's a luxury item. When the Rumsford fireplace was invented, wood was the only source of heat, so extracting every bit of radiant heat they could
Thanks! I do try to use my heater as little as possible in winter--I much prefer natural wood-burning fireplace heat over the dry heat from a heater. We only have a few very cold months in our region so it's feasible to burn firewood quite often. I'm going to do more research on the Rumsford FP as

in the first or last category, do more research before choosing radiant heating. Here’s why:A poor or standard house with a poor thermal envelope will lose heat at a rapid rate. To compensate you’ll have to keep your radiant heating up to a very high temperature, but you’ll often never reach a temperature
building's history. Before pouring the concrete, Ramus excavated the floor and added ridge-foam insulation and radiant heating. Even in British winters, the building requires little additional heat.
opposite end, a highly energy-efficient house with an excellent thermal envelope won’t need radiant heating. It would be a cost with an extremely long payback period. Instead of whole-house radiant heating, perhaps consider localized systems in the bathrooms, just to have a nice warm spot for your feet
