Wood burners and multi-fuels
Wood-Burning and Multi-Fuel Stoves
The new ECO Design 2022-approved stoves ensure a cleaner environment and peace of mind while keeping you warm and cosy. You can relax knowing your stove is running at a standard that aims to improve air quality and reduce emissions.
Most of our Eco 22 approved stoves are Energy Efficiency A or A+ rated.
To keep your side of the regulations you must only burn dry logs or approved quality solid fuel (coal) and follow our manufacturer’s instructions to experience Triple burn technology with Eco Friendly, efficient burning.
You must also ensure that your flue or chimney is swept at least once a year; we will send you an annual reminder.
Your stove will then continue to safely deliver efficient heat using one of the most renewable fuel sources; wood grows on trees! Forest thinning is an integral part of managing woodlands. Trees absorb carbon monoxide from the atmosphere, and provide food and shelter for wildlife. During their life, they will provide twenty times more oxygen than is required for combustion, which in turn releases no more C02 than would its eventual decay.
This is all very good news but the recent huge increase in the sales of wood burners or multi-fuel stoves have led to increases in the price of logs; Shop around for the best bulk buying prices, you shouldn’t be able to buy damp wood anymore, look for the new “Ready to Burn” logo and check out readytoburn.org to research local suppliers.
Gas Fires & Stoves
Gas Fires and Stoves:
The new glass fronted gas fires and stoves are up to 89% efficient, typically using 4.8 kw of gas to deliver 3.8 kw of heat. Obviously, gas prices vary depending on your tariff but using 10p per kw per hour as an easy example this equates to 48p per hour on the highest setting.
We are delighted to have 3 of the most popular Media Unit Fires on display:
The British Fires New Forest De Luxe with Real Logs creates a beautiful calming atmosphere; you could be gazing at the flames rather than watching the TV!
The Gazco Onyx Avanti with its mesmerising “Chromalight” colour changes.
And The Dimplex Vivente; use the remote control to change the colours of the flames, listen to the crackling sound effect or download onto your app on your smartphone for more enhanced colour control features.
Each of these ranges is available in various lengths from less than a metre wide up to 2.4 m wide.
Electric Fires :
Led lights are now used to give realistic flame pictures at a fraction of the price compared to the old light bulbs and switch the heat on when you need it.
All Electric fires can be operated with just the lights and a separate setting for up to 2 kw of almost 100% efficient heat when needed.
Freestanding suites in MDF painted to replicate the colour of stone or just plain white, cream or grey; suitable for an inset electric fire, just stand it on the floor and plug in the fire. For extra stability, it can be secured with a set of brackets.
“Hang On The Wall” Electric fire suites: modern colour-changing flame and fuel bed to suit your mood, fitted into a simple MDF painted suite, leaves plenty of floor space, gives a useful mantle shelf and looks great with a TV fitted on the wall above, a simple but effective version of a Media Unit Style.
Contemporary Micro Marble Electric Fireplace Suites; available with the latest large screen electric fire or a choice of 16” or 22” inset electric fires; ideal for fitting against a flat wall.
Limestone Fireplaces; the ever popular smooth cool limestone, contemporary or more traditional, there are so many to choose from. Generally suitable for gas or electric inset fires, ideally fitted against a chimney breast but electric flat wall fittings are also available.
Sandstone and Bathstone; our friends at Firecraft in Leicester, Farmington or Principal Stone in The Cotswolds use local natural stone to make beautiful bespoke fireplaces. Ideal for an open fire, inset stove or a woodburning stove.
Limestone surrounds with granite hearths; this is a popular combination for an electric, gas or woodburning stove.
Or a traditional limestone surround with a cast iron arch fitted on a granite hearth; this is a traditional style that can add character to a modern home.
Or how about an Oak Beam or Shelf fitted above chamber with a stove and hearth… very cosy.
