Gas fires 

How much does it cost to run?

Q: How much does it cost to run a gas fire?

A: This depends upon the efficiency of the fire you are considering.

Natural gas that is piped into most towns and cities in the UK currently costs around 2 pence per kW hour.

For example, Gazco E-Box™ with balanced flue has an input of 4.10kW so it will cost just over 8 pence per hour to run.

However, the true also cost depends upon the efficiency of the appliance – the higher the efficiency, the cheaper it is to run – and, in the case of the balanced flue E-Box™ at 86% efficiency, you will have 3.52kW of heat output for 8.2 pence. This makes the real cost of your heating 2.4 pence per kW hour.
