Gas fires have evolved in terms of efficiency, design, and popularity in recent years. Put in simple terms, gas is clean, convenient and cheap, which is a huge attraction for UK households when they are looking to heat their homes.

Gas Stoves:

Not all gas fires adopt the classic design most associated with a gas fire. For a number of years, we have produced a range of popular gas stoves. The gas stoves give the look and feel of a wood-burning stove, but without the work needed to clean it and reload wood. You can learn more about gas stoves here.

Gas Fires – A Closer Look…

Gas fires have a number of benefits:

If you’re considering a gas fire, whether it be an upgrade from an old, inefficient gas fire or a new gas installation, there are a number of benefits, which include:

Efficiency – Natural gas is still currently a low-cost fuel when compared to kW usage.

Hassle-Free – Gas fires are considered hassle-free compared to burning wood. While a gas fire generally can’t compare to the satisfaction of burning wood, for those who don’t have the time or inclination, gas is the perfect solution. They are easy to clean, too!

Smoke Control Areas – Many parts of the UK do not allow burning wood, except for those on specific appliances, such as those found in the Charlton & Jenrick range, and only if you burn the correct type of fuel. A gas fire is not subject to any smoke control rules, which can be appealing depending on where you live.

No Chimney? No Problem. If you have a gas fire, you don’t automatically need a chimney. You can have a balanced flue fire or a flueless fire as long as there is an air vent in the room.

Lower Your Carbon Footprint – Gas actually emits less CO2 per kWh than electricity, especially at peak times, such as early evening and in winter. While modern electric fires are highly efficient, the nature of gas means you need less energy to heat a room.

Controlling Your Heating – Gas’s controllability easily allows you to adjust your heating and warmth in a home, equally so with electricity, too but leaps and bounds ahead of burning wood, where temperature control is not as responsive.

Gas Safety – Despite the benefits of gas, there is a number of safety considerations you should always be aware of. A gas fire should be serviced regularly. Also, there is always a risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning if your appliance becomes faulty or is not serviced regularly, which you should be aware of.

Despite these points, gas is still considered a great way to heat a home. It’s clean, efficient, and cheap. But that’s not to say there are other heating types that offer a vast array of benefits. The ideal heating source for your home is a choice only you can make.
