An electric or gas fire is the most common alternative to the traditional fireplace. Many opt for the former, as it does not require logs or coal, nor the installation of a vent or chimney since nothing is actually burning. Moreover, you can also enjoy the visual beauty of flames in the summer without the heat.

The latter generates real flames, and thereby requires more maintenance. Regardless of the choice, keep warm and cosy with a modern fireplace.

About Fires

A new fireplace is going to have a huge impact on the look and feel of your home. The fireplace is often a focal point in a room and therefore when choosing one, there are aesthetic as well as practical and economic considerations to take into account. For most people one of the key choices is between gas and electric fires. Electric fires are becoming increasingly popular. There are several reasons for this: 1. Installing an electric fire can be as simple as putting a plug into a socket. 2. It does not require regular maintenance and servicing in the same way that a gas fire does. 3. Because they do not burn any fuel, electric fires are safer. You do not run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, for example. 4. Because electric fires do not produce fuel emissions, they are much better for the environment. 5. They allow for flexibility. They can be wall mounted, placed in a hearth or in any room (you do not have to depend on the position of the gas supply). You can take your electric fire with you if you move to a new house. Despite this, there are many who still prefer gas fires. Gas fires are quieter as they do not use a fan to generate heat. The flames are real which creates a warmer, more natural effect and can feel cosier than an electric fire. If you already have a gas fire, decommissioning it and cutting off the gas supply will involve costs. Of course, the decision will come down to your lifestyle and preferences, but it is worth looking at a range of options. With the growing demand for electric fires, there are more design choices available on the market than ever before, and the artificial flame effects are increasingly more aesthetically appealing.
