How do gas fires work?
Renowned for the warm and homely ambience they create, gas fires effortlessly become a beautiful focal point that will really anchor your space and transform it into a calming place in which you will find it easy to switch off, relax, and enjoy your leisure time. They incorporate air-movement channels that maximize the warmth supplied to the house, releasing waste gases to the outside through a tube in the wall. The fire itself burns behind glass, making them highly efficient and supremely easy to keep clean and maintain, with many modern models even including a remote control that will enable you to create your desired atmosphere directly from the comfort of your sofa.
If you are looking for a model that will embody the natural beauty and appearance of a real fire, a living flame gas fire will provide you with the same restful ambience in a much more convenient and fuss-free manner. Functional and beautiful, a living flame gas fire is the ideal choice for everyone who wants to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Can I have a gas fire in my bedroom?
Smaller spaces can also enjoy this warm and cosy ambience by selecting an inset gas fire with a smaller footprint. Many inset gas fire models are incredibly versatile and are suitable for most spaces; however, if you are especially tight on space or have a class 2 or pre-cast flue installed within your home, choosing one of the newer slimline designs will ensure that you can achieve your chosen aesthetic without losing any precious floor space. These models will only project slightly from your wall, creating a striking focal point without visually overwhelming your room. Take a look at the hole in the wall fire range.
