Outset Gas Fires
There are a number of different types of gas fire on the market place so choosing the one that is right for you can require more than a little research. The wall mounted gas fire offers many advantages over some of the other models on the market.
The major benefit of wall mounted gas fires is that they combine high heat efficiencies, up to 88% on high end models,, with a wide variety of styles to choose from. With ever rising fuel bills, efficiency should always be a major factor when choosing a fire. For this reason many people choose radiant gas fires, as these are the most efficient on the market. However, they do tend to be a little basic in style and for the small increase in efficiency is it worth installing a fire that is going to look out of place with the rest of the room?
Freestanding fires certainly make a great focal point in any room, but as any owner will attest to, they are not the best option for heating a large area.
For the majority of homes then, wall mounted fire gas fires offer the best overall value in terms of price, style and efficiency. While they are not as efficient as radiant fires, the additional choices in styles and finishes more than make up for it and while they may not make the same focal point as a freestanding fire does, their extra efficiency more than makes up for that.
