With the convenience and ease of gas, it has long been an excellent option for many when choosing a fire or stove.
Manufacturers continue to expand their ranges and there is certainly a breadth of styles of both gas stoves and fires available in today’s market. So, whether you are looking for a classic look, perhaps an inset gas fire complete with a coal or log fuel effect and placed within a fireplace or a sleek modern, hole-in-the-wall aesthetic you have many options open to you. Decorative fronts and frames for insets are available in a wealth of styles whilst cassette fires can be left ‘frameless’ for an ultra modern look. It is also possible to tile around a stove or fire and today the choice of colours and patterns are extensive. Fuel effects too have become more varied and realistic – driftwood and chunky logs sit side by side with highly realistic coals, cool white stones and coloured glass beads for an injection of colour.
Before you make your decision however, it is worth considering whether or not gas is for you and your home. You should visit your local Gazco stove retailer to ensure you receive professional advice. A Gazco retailer will also be able to recommend or provide an installer who can survey your property to make certain it is suited to your preferred fuel type. You can visit a section our webpage explaining the benefits of buying from a retailer.
One important aspect to consider is the cost and practicality of using gas to create heat. Many homes are hooked up to natural gas, conveniently piped directly into the house. Should you find, however, that you do not have access to natural gas, the possibility of installing a fire or stove should still be achievable due to the many appliances that are able to use bottled gas LPG. It is worth checking this and making certain that you are choosing the right appliance for your requirements.
Once you have confirmation of your property’s suitability to gas, you will have the pleasurable task of choosing your preferred style of fire or stove as well as deciding what features you would like it to perform. A very attractive feature of many modern gas fires and stoves is the ability to be remote controlled. This ultimately provides wonderful convenience at the switch of a button so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the warmth and flames from the comfort of your favourite armchair. Remote controls now do more than simply fire up your appliance, adjust the flame height and extinguish it; many go beyond these basic operations to offer a number of exciting advanced features.
Gazco was the first manufacturer in the UK to introduce remote controls for gas fires. Today, their modern thermostatic remote handsets can allow you to set a preferred room temperature so you can stay comfortable without any manual adjustment. Furthermore, you can even set your fire or stove to a timer, so if you would like to return home from work to a cosy sitting room you can set your fire to automatically switch itself on before you return. Using this advanced feature would bring your gas appliance into the sort of timetable that would normally be exclusive to your central heating – your fire or stove will become integral to the warmth of your home and fully utilised when most needed.
Now with the task of choosing your preferred style of appliance, you can select from a broad selection and the Gazco range is one of the leading manufacturers with a highly efficient and extensive choice of gas fires and stoves available including designs both traditional and contemporary.
