Selecting The Right Gas Fire Place for Your Home

Today's gas fires frequently combine modern technology with classic style, making them perfect for homeowners who want a convenient, but traditional looking, fireplace. The classic coal-effect gas fire has been a staple of British homes for decades, but is now available in a huge range of styles, meaning it doesn't look out of place in even the most contemporary home. Choosing the perfect material and finish to best complement your existing decor will ensure your new fireplace looks as if it was built especially for your home - which is as it should be.

The variety of gas fires available on the market means there is a style for just about every taste and budget. From traditional, stone fireplaces to stylish, contemporary fireplaces, it's easy to find the perfect complement to your home's decor. Electric and gas fires add warmth and ambience to any room, and can become the focal point of your decor. As well as the practical aspect of the heat they provide in colder months, they can also make your home look and feel more welcoming.

Choosing a fireplace can be a difficult decision, after all, it is something that you are going to be living with for a long time. There are some factors that one needs to consider that can help make the right decision. If you are in the process of choosing a fireplace, here's what you need to think about.

Chimneys

The size of your chimney flue will do a lot to determine, which fireplace one can install. If you want a solid fuel fire, then you would require a Class 1 chimney (with a flue of at least 7 inches in diameter). Gas fires, on the other hand, can get away with smaller flues of around 5 inches. Also, if one have a chimney breast, the shelf of the fireplace should never be wider than the breast itself.

Hearths Whether you already have a hearth, or are installing one, you need to keep in mind that a solid fuel fireplace will need at least 20 inches of space at the front, and six inches on each side of the fire, for safety reasons.

The Size of the Room

Larger rooms need larger fireplaces, in order to get the required amount of heat. It is easy to build a small fire in a large fireplace, but impossible to do the opposite, so get the largest fireplace that will fit in your desired location.

Aesthetics

How the fireplace should look, it is a matter of personal taste. However, one should remember that simple is timeless. It is not easy to rip out and reinstall a fireplace, so you do want something that is going to stand the test of time. Striking, unique, modern designs can add style and elegance to your home, but the more unique something is the less likely that it is still going to be fashionable in a few years’ time. It is better to select simple design, which can add a unique mantle. Changing a mantle is relatively easy and means that one can have the uniqueness, that they are looking for without having to change their fireplace every few years.

Having the benefits of the controls at hand,has changed this lady’s use of the stove in so many ways. She was struggling to operate the old fire ,having to bend down to far as it caused her to be very unsteady. Now she can sit in her chair and with the press of the button,bingo it all works Very useful for someone struggling with mobility.

Delivery was as promised. Fire was fitted quickly into surround that had contained the CANNON Caress fire. In theory it is not as efficient as the old fire but heat output is good and it looks a bit more realistic. We were surprised how hot the brass surround became so you have to make sure you touch the insulated portion of the handle when adjusting the flame. . Slide control is rather sensitive and has no notches to give feedback so adjustment of flame can be tricky. We are very pleased with our purchase and the price was the best we could find.
