An electric fire has many benefits, from convenience to ease of installation. Here is some advice to help you decide if an electric log burner is for you.
If you enjoy the look of a fireplace and wish you could enjoy the glow of a fire all year round were it not for summer, an electric fire is the answer.
Gazco’s electric fire and stove range offer you the ability to switch on the heat for localised heating in the colder months, but also lets you switch off the heat to enjoy the visuals alone.
Electric fires offer instant heat at the touch of a button. Only requiring an ordinary three-pin plug socket to connect to the mains, an electric log burner is ultra-easy to install. Freestanding versions can generally be moved from room to room, simply plugging into the mains. Hang-on-the-wall models can also be hung in different rooms if required. Electric fires that have been recessed into the wall may need a bit more installation work to remove or refit, but ultimately all require the same simply plug-and-go connection to mains electricity.
Electric fires and stoves come in different shapes and sizes, and many offer log-effect fuel effects. For a more traditional log burning look, an electric wood burner such as the Huntingdon electric stove emulates a real glowing fire. Alternatively, electric fires such as the Skope present a more contemporary take on a wood burning look, with realistic logs yet offering a whole spectrum of coloured uplighting.
One major benefit from an electric fire or stove is that many now offer alternative fuel effects. If you have a particularly modern home, you may be looking for something different from a log burning look. Models such as the Gazco Vogue Midi Electric come with the option to switch the logs for the crystal ice-effect instead. Along with this, the Vogue Midi Electric stove lets you choose from 13 different fuel bed lighting colours, meaning you can opt for something that matches your colour scheme while creating a striking centrepiece.
