Heating with gas
Gas fireplaces and stoves are available in all sizes and versions. Built-in fireplaces have been 'on-trend' for many years, either flush-mounted or with a classic mantelpiece. There is an immense range of choice. There are also many different options for viewing the fire. As well as standard front models, with a view of the fire only from directly in front, two-sided, three-sided and even transparent (i.e. all-round view) models are now available.
What are the benefits of having a gas-fired fireplace insert or stove?
When you decide on a gas-fired fireplace insert or stove, you are choosing in favour of ambience, effortlessness and comfort. At one press of the button, you light up the fireplace and can enjoy a majestic, natural display of living flames. Thereafter, you can regulate the temperature in your house using a remote control handset. The ability to enjoy a fireplace with such an absence of effort means that you have created the ideal place to relax.
Gas fireplaces and stoves are available in all possible sizes and versions. Built-in fireplaces have been trendy for years, flush-mounted or with a frame or with a classic mantelpiece. There is an immense range of choice. In particular, the flush-mounted stoves with a wide flame display are proving particularly popular at the present time. Moreover, in terms of this view of the fire, we are currently noting a marked trend away from standard front models, with a view only from directly in front, to two-sided, three-sided and transparent (i.e. all-round view) models. These transparent or 'tunnel models' are often used as room dividers. This means that you can enjoy the fire from two areas of a large room, or from two different rooms, for example from kitchen and living room, at the same time. As well as integrated appliances, there are of course also free-standing and suspended models.
