A new fire or stove should not be an impulse purchase, there are many things to consider to make sure you make the right decision for you and your home.

The first thing you’ll want to consider is the fuel type. Are you looking for real, dancing flames of a woodburning appliance, or do you want convenience and instant heat from gas? Or you may want spectacular colours and LED lighting from an electric stove or fire.

Fuel Types

You have the option of two types of solid fuel stoves and fires. The wood burner that only burns logs or multi fuel that burns either logs or smokeless fuels. Real fires create a cosy atmosphere, perfect for cold winter evenings. Plus there is a wide variety of styling options available, it’s no surprise that many UK homeowners are opting for the stoves and open fireplaces. Bolstering aesthetics, wood fuel for these appliances is widely appreciated to be an eco-friendly option. Virtually carbon neutral, wood burning stoves and fires make an attractive choice for the eco-conscious homeowner.
