Fuels, including wood burning and gas, are safe to burn if your stove or fire is installed, maintained and used correctly.If you don't regularly maintain your wood burner, for example, you are at risk from a Carbon Monoxide leak that is the result of incomplete burning of a fuel.
When choosing a traditional stove, contemporary stove or fire from Stovax or Gazco, one of the first decisions you will be required to make is deciding on the type of fuel you want your appliance to run on.
With the ease & convenience of gas, it’s usual to assume that your property is supplied by the mains gas network. Sometimes though, this isn’t the case with some rural (and not so rural) areas missing out.
Before you purchase your gas fire or stove, you should consider your home’s suitability for gas. If it isn’t linked up to a supply of natural gas, don’t be alarmed, many stoves and fires have models that can operate with LPG (liquid gas or propane). LPG is available in many areas of the UK, but check your supplier choices and also consider your delivery and storage options.
Efficiency rates should not vary between natural gas and LPG, but it is worth ensuring that your chosen fire or stove is compatible with your needs by speaking to your local retailer.
