Should You Consider Electric?

Should You Consider Electric?

Despite their popularity, the wood burning lifestyle isn’t for everyone. So, what are your options if you prefer an easier way of life? If you’re unsure, choosing an electric stove or fire may well be the answer.

A wood burning stove or fire is a highly attractive addition to people’s homes and with their popularity rising steadily over the last decade, the myriad of choices mean there is something to fit everyone’s taste and budget.

But despite their popularity, the rustic, wood burning lifestyle isn’t for everyone. So, what are your options if you prefer a less toilsome, and some may say, easier, way of life?

If you’re unsure, choosing an electric stove or fire may well be the answer.

A Stove For All Tastes

All electric fires and stoves are an easy option in terms of usability. By their very nature, they only require a standard plug socket to operate which means they can be installed virtually anywhere. That gives you the easiest start to enjoying their 1 or 2kW heat output.

Available in different styles, a Gazco electric fire or stove provides many options for both modern and traditional tastes. And while a wood burning stove might not be for you, their sturdy good looks may well be.

For a classic looking, freestanding stove to complete your rural theme, look no further than a Marlborough, Stockton or Huntingdon electric stove. Coming in a range of sizes, these traditional cast iron stoves mimic their wood burning cousins right down to the finest casting details.

For fans of the more contemporary, try the Anthracite or brushed steel finish of the Manhattan. And the range of Riva Vision electric stoves will give you an uber-modern finish with their sleek black glass doors and integral glass plinths.

Wall Of Fire

For homeowners without an inglenook or the floorspace for a freestanding electric stove, it’s worth exploring the Gazco wall mounted and inset electric fire ranges.

The Studio Electric is an easily installed wall mounted fire that comes with a good choice of frames. From the chic glass and wood combination of the Evoke or Evolve frames, to the cool black Glass and the subtle curved steel Verve, they will all suit the more modern interior.

As an alternative, the Riva2 670 range delivers high impact with its array of glass and steel frame choices. Together with the realistic log fuel bed and stunning VeriFlame technology, the Riva2 670 electric fire will prove to be a highly efficient focal point.

The Studio Inset Electric fire gives a smooth and frameless finish in three sizes. Offering the same 1 – 2kW heat output with a beautiful LED flame effect, these fires create a strikingly different and minimalist look.

The Riva2 Inset fires are the same in terms of heat and flame visual, but are available in a square (or almost square for the Riva2 Inset 55) design. The Riva2 70 Inset can also be fitted in tandem with the elegant Stovax Stone Mantel range, for ultimate sophistication.

Out With The Old

Also included in their Electric fires range are Gazco’s 16″ Logic inset fires. Designed to fit into a standard fireplace opening or flat against the wall (using a 3” spacer frame), these easily installed hearth mounted fires offer a different finish altogether.

The range of 16” fires is a perfect choice if you want to utilise your existing hearth and replace your old and outdated electric fire.

For a traditional feel, the Logic Electric Box Profil frames provide a wealth of options with their large choice of frames and fronts. Available in Matt Black, Brass effect, Polished Steel effect and Brushed Steel effect, this is a great way to mix and match your electric fire to your decor.

To get a really modern finish, the sharp and contemporary looks of the Graphite or Iridium Fusion and Black Glass Futura frames really offer a wow factor. Coming with a white Stone fuel bed as standard, this can easily be upgraded to either a red, black or clear glass bead effect for further individuality.

Remote Access

All of Gazco’s electric fires and stoves are fully controllable with the supplied remote control. Control and select the heat outputs and flame visuals to reach your perfect ambiance and atmosphere – all from the comfort of your armchair!

      Thanks for your comment Jess – much appreciated.
      Often, electric versions of any fire can go unnoticed, but there is such an array available that it’s good to make people aware of the ranges and the advantages.
      Thanks,
