WE SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS. HERE ARE 5 GOOD REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD TOO…

As a business it has always been in our interest to support our local showrooms around the UK. After all they are selling our products to the end customer. But for us it runs much deeper than just selling. We’ve a love for supporting all local business. It’s local business, which keep the high street alive. Local businesses are the lifeblood of the community.

Since Covid-19 manifested it’s ugly head, the high street has been hit with a devastating blow, which in some cases will prove fatal for some businesses. Many of these are small, family run businesses, which do not have the huge resources of large multinationals.

When we get back to normal…

There is a lot of mention in the media about when things return to the “new” normal. The word “new” being used to best describe the situation we will all be faced with once restrictions start to lift. “New” will be temporary, for the time being, until things get back to normal. Before we know it, things indeed will be just “back to normal”. It’s optimistic and upbeat we know, and while some will argue this with doom and gloom, we feel being upbeat is the only way to be. Positivity breeds positivity.

About our showrooms..

Whilst on the subject of local businesses, we thought now is a good a time as any to reiterate the huge benefits that our UK wide local showrooms deliver to our end customers. Benefits, which existed before Covid-19, and will absolutely exist after, when things return to normal.

Here are the benefits:

1 – Professional Help:

Buying a fire, whether it be a wood burning stove, an electric fire, or gas fire can be complex. There are a wide range of things to consider such as the type of fire, size of room, levels of insulation, various building regulations and more. Your local showroom is a trusted expert and will be able to help you. They won’t bombard you with jargon, but will help explain what will be required, to get your fire safely installed in your home.

2 – You Get A Site Survey:

One reason why you should only ever buy local and not online is that you will have a site survey. A site survey is all part of the service from a local showroom and is vital.

During a Site Survey your local showroom will look at:

  1. The relevant/desired location in the room for the stove or fire, including the wall construction and clearances to any combustible materials.
  2. The flue system, and if the current flue is suitable and safe to use for the desired stove/fire, or if a new one would fit.
  3. The appropriate heat output for the size of the room.
  4. Gas supply (relevant to gas fires only).
  5. Relevant building regulations. For example a balanced flue must have access to an outside wall, and must be within certain distances from windows, and neighbours houses etc.
  6. Ventilation – sufficient air supply is very important for safety of open flued appliances but not necessary for balanced flue fires.
  7. To find out if your home is in a smoke control area.

A site survey isn’t something you get with an online purchase!

3 – You’re Supporting Local:

As we said before, local businesses are the lifeblood of the high street. By buying local you are doing your bit for your local community.

4 – Expert Installation:

Never try and install a fire yourself unless you’re an expert. Your showroom will be able to install for you, or recommend an expert they work with. Your safety is paramount.

5 – After Sales Support:

Your showroom will be able to provide After Sales care, and we have a wide range of comprehensive warranties in place to protect and look after you, not to mention dedicated Customer Services, Technical and Spares departments also. And being local means you can pop in and see someone if you prefer face to face!

We face unprecedented challenges. With commitment and hard work we will all get through this tough period.
