Choosing Between Different Fires & Stoves
Wednesday, July 26th 2017 9:44pm
Hello and welcome to our blog here at Maydown Fireplaces in Armagh. Today we thought we would write about the choices and various benefits of the products we can supply which includes electric fires, gas fires and multi fuel stoves.
There is no doubt that stoves have grown massively in popularity over the last few years. The stoves that we supply are superb quality stoves that can really heat a room up quickly and efficiently, and they can give a room a more homely and rustic, traditional feel to it.
Multi fuel stoves can obviously have different fuels added to them including coal, wood and peat etc. You may have a favourite type of fuel that you like to use but the cleanest fuel to use is probably wood. With wood there is less likely that your flue will become blocked up, you won`t need it cleaning as regularly and the grate underneath won`t need to be cleaned so often either.
If your home does not have a stove in at present then there may be some work you need to have done to set up your chimney, fireplace and hearth ready for the stove to be installed, but once they are installed they can be relatively cheap to run.
Instant Heat With A Gas Or Electric Fire
But if you want a fire where you can just come down in the morning, flick a switch and have instant heat, then an electric or a gas fire is the right choice for you. If you like the look of a real fire without the work it entails you can always get a gas fire that looks like natural flames, they can look very effective indeed.
Regarding electric versus gas fires, running a gas fire is probably the cheaper option at this moment in time but there are some great looking electric fires too so don`t let this put you off. However if you are fuel conscious gas may be the better choice for you.
