We can supply a large selection of multifuel & DEFRA approved stoves suitable for the smallest or largest rooms. They can be installed with a simple look on a hearth or complimented with a large variety of inglenook style fireplaces, made to measure to suit your needs. Most styles of fireplace can be made into an inglenook although we also custom make oak beams and solid wood surrounds if that is your preference. Inglenooks can be dressed with a variety of different materials & styles – all at the best possible prices as we have cut out the middleman. On top of this, we offer a unrivaled installation service from experienced fitters.
If you are looking for the look of a real fire but prefer the instant controllable heat, then there are a selection of gas stoves available, which can be complimented in exactly the same way as a multifuel stove, on a hearth or with a wide style of inglenook fireplaces. We offer a full installation service from our Gas Safe registered fitters.
Flueless Gas Stoves
When your home doesn't have a class 1 chimney, then there are still options available to you. Flueless gas stoves can be used were a flue is faulty, in a chimney breast created from studwork or displayed on a hearth - making them ideal for rooms like conservatories. As they are 100% efficient, it wont take long before the lower running costs mean it pays for itself!
As an alternative to multifuel or gas stoves, electric stoves can be a fantastic choice especially if the budget is tight! There are many different styles ranging from simple single flame effect with matt finish right up to the deceptively real "Opti-myst" look. The fully 3 dimensional effect uses established ultrasonic technology to create an ultra fine water mist.As the mist rises up through the coals or logs, the light reflects against the water creating a convincing illusion of flames & smoke. The result is a amazingly authentic look that will be mistaken for the real thing!
Before selecting a stove there are many things to consider. The type of fuel you wish to use will be a main consideration which will point you down several different avenues. The cheapest option to create "the look" is electric but they are the most expensive to run where heat is required. Gas is the cheapest, cleanest and most controllable option with flueless versions available should you not have a class 1 chimney or it isnt working properly. Flueless stoves are an ideal solution for heat in a conservatory.
Multifuel stoves have the most authentic look but fitting & installation can often be costly and outweigh any perceived cost savings on the fuel. If a stove is specified as multi fuel then it can burn a number of different fuel types including wood, coal,coke, peat, anthracite and smokeless fuels. Some towns and cities of the UK are designated smoke control areas and prohibit the burning of smoke producing fuels such as wood. In such circumstances, stoves can still be used if they burn smokeless fuels or gas. However, if you live in a smoke controlled area and still want the freedom to burn wood you can use a DEFRA approved cleanburn stove. These stoves are specially designed to burn wood whilst producing lower smoke emissions. All stoves should be installed by registered Gas Safe & appropriately qualified solid fuel fitters.
Once you have decided on the type of stove you require, we can offer a wide variety of hearths, chambers, wood beams and made to measure surrounds, all of which can be supplied and fitted by Gas Safe registered fitters.
