What To Consider When Choosing The Perfect Fire
Two Things To Think About
When choosing a gas or wood burning fire or stove, you must take the size into account. The average sized UK living room only requires 3-4 kilowatts (kW) to heat adequately, and it can be problematic if the user chooses a gas, wood burning fire or stove with too high a capacity. The most common mistake made by consumers is going for a fire with a too high a capacity, and subsequently, they can only use the fire sparingly or burn at a low temperature as the room would become too hot. When this mistake occurs with wood-fired stoves and heaters, it results in poor combustion, high emission and blackened glass. There is a simple calculation that can be
Importance of a Site Survey and Steps for Buying Fireplaces
Importance of a Site Survey
The importance of a site survey should never be ignored when installing a new or updating an old heating appliance. A site survey conducted by a suitably qualified engineer (Preferably HETAS registered installer) will guide you to choosing the best type of appliance, flue system and location of heating appliance for your home. Also you will be able to obtain an accurate quotation of cost.
It is highly recommend that you complete a site survey before purchasing your new heating appliance, to determine its suitability to your home. During a typical site survey, your retailer will find out the appropriate heat output for the room, the best location within the
What is a balanced flue gas fire?
WHAT IS A BALANCED FLUE GAS FIRE?
Balanced flue gas fires draw air through a flue installed in an exterior-facing wall. The same flue is also used to expel spent gases from the fire. This means balanced flue fires are entirely sealed heating systems that can be fitted anywhere, with no need for a chimney. (All that’s required is an outside wall!) These fires are therefore extremely versatile, much more so than traditional gas fires.
Sometimes known as ‘closed combustion’ gas appliances because they contain combustion within a closed system, balanced flue gas fires are always glass-fronted units. This arrangement not only warms the room more economically (air and gas circulate
