in China, we do not have that kind of fireplace in the house. maybe in some modern houses, they we ...

Well, the Castle I was speaking of is a baroque Palace, not sure if it is a very recently built Building, but I guess not.

And to correct you on another thing,
in China maybe as a luxury in actual real Houses or Villas of wealthy Party Cadres and Bosses as a luxury,
BUT also in old not so luxury simple houses like in Beijing Hutongs or in old Farm Buildings on the Countryside as a very basical heating and cooking fire.

Of course Middle class in China / Welfare Receivers here can't have fireplaces in apartment Building Flats.
Should be obvious that it just doesn't work for practical reasons.

I just remember this one,
an aunt of mine has just fully renovated a Building on the new Site of their Farm as the new Accomondation Building.
It's fitted with a Fireplace with a fully electronical regulation, heating the Entry Hall, the Living Room, and the Kitchen, where it also functions as a heated Bench around the Dining table.
There are heated walls, similar to floor heating in other Rooms.

It's quite cozy that System.

Downside is,
Electric mock fireplaces are just plain siht.
ethanol mock fireplaces are dangerous as fcuk.
wel, there are still Gas powered semi mock fireplaces
they are great, look really good, are safe if you ain't too greedy of a fool,
problem?.
Here, they are bloody VERBOTEN! here.
(Know them from Belgium though, why can't I haz one here too?)

Heck, the ethanol powerd mock fireplaces are bloody dangerous,
the gas ones are just as safe or dangerous as legal directly gas powered gas radiators.

well I guess it should have,
with either cold Fog or cold Rain all year.

But the best the Buildings have energy-efficency wise by D-A-CH Standards is:
Potential, to put it nicely.
