Fireplaces are an incredibly popular feature in people’s homes. They give a great sense of focus to a room, and a cosy heat in the colder weather. Whilst fireplaces might first make you think of ‘real’ fires, gas fires offer a host of benefits to those who can’t, or choose not to have a wood or coal burning option.
We are increasingly aware of our energy use. Using gas can actually be an incredibly efficient and therefore cost-effective way to heat, and may even reduce heating bills. Modern models require very few kilowatts of energy to rapidly warm a room, and glass fronted options can be up to 90% fuel efficient. Of course, there is also the fact that you can just heat the room you are in and not the whole house. In addition to all this, gas fires are usually pretty easy and inexpensive to install.
Whether you are seeking a traditional look fire or a modern wall mounted unit, gas fires cover a full range of stylistic options for all tastes. It’s not the 80s any more. Today’s gas fires are many and varied, and tasteful!
Available and flexible
Gas fires do require some kind of vent, but not a chimney and for this reason, most homes can accommodate one. There are a vast range of options on the market, and the right gas fire for you will depend on the set up you have at home – the type of flue or chimney you do or don’t have – but a reputable supplier will be able to advise you on all this.
Easy to manage
For many, gas fires offer an easy to manage heating and comfort fire source without the hassle of buying, storing and cleaning up after wood or coal. For those who want to just turn it on and off, this can be a great option.
Unlike their electric counterparts, gas fires do provide the comfort of a real flame. If a real fire is not for you, or not available to you, but you still want to bathe in the comfort of a steady yellow, orange flame then the gas fire is a good alternative.
Over the last few decades, the technology behind gas fires has seen some significant developments. They now offer an incredibly safe, easy to use, stylish option for your home.
