Gas Fires
Gas fires can be fitted into most existing fireplaces, while a new hole-in-the-wall style fireplace can give a really modern look. Moving a fire up off the floor creates a contemporary style statement and can work well in a period property. There are gas fires available for all kinds of flues. Remember, too, that all gas fires should be fitted by a CORGI-registered installer.
Electric Fires
Electric fires have really moved on in recent years. They are now great value for money and have all the benefits of a decorative gas fire. They´re also a great way to incorporate a fire into a room without a flue and are really easy to install. A world away from old-fashioned bar models, modern electric fires look good, but heat output can be limited.
Flueless Fires
A relatively recent innovation, flueless fires don´t require a chimney as they use a catalytic converter to remove fumes. Flueless fires are an expanding market. The great thing is that none of the heat is lost up a chimney, so they´re 100 per cent energy efficient, and they only use 25 per cent of the gas consumed by other decorative models. Flueless fires require a minimum room size and additional ventilation into the room.
Once the preserve of country cottages, stoves are appearing in modern homes, thanks to new, sleek, contemporary designs. Most use wood, a renewable source of energy and an eco-friendly option, but some models can also be fuelled by coal, gas or even electricity. There is a trend towards wood-burning stoves, In terms of the size and output of your stove. As with other fires, get your flue checked to see whether it´s the right size and in good condition. If it isn´t, you can get a liner fitted. An appliance is only as good as the flue it´s connected to.
Select your surround
Granite, Marble, Sandstone, limestone, Victorian or cast iron; wall-mounted, traditional or contemporary. The fireplace you choose is very much down to personal taste, but do take into consideration the style and period of your home when making your decision. Scale and proportion are everything, make sure you go for a surround that sits well in the room, to ensure your scheme doesn´t feel unbalanced. It´s like investing in the best-quality tailoring, but for your fireplace!
