In today’s world in which there is such a multitude of ways to heat a home, a warm fireplace nonetheless remains a comforting sight for many of us. However, given the increasing sophistication of electric fires in recent years, as well as the traditional homely appeal of a log fire, you might be hesitant to get on the phone to us about a gas fire installation in Chelmsford.
Here are some of the reasons why a gas fire really might be the best option for you.
At a time when many householders are struggling to pay their heating bills, a modern gas fire can be a great source of reassurance from a financial point of view.
Far from the expensive ‘guzzlers’ that they might have been in the 1980s, contemporary gas fires are capable of heat efficiencies of as much as 80% or more, as well as enough heat output to potentially serve as the primary source of heat in a living room.
If you’re contemplating a log fire in your home, you’re going to need a chimney, which is no longer present in many residential properties today.
Even if you do have a chimney, you shouldn’t underestimate the costs and time required to look after it properly. That’s why the sheer convenience of a gas fire – which only requires a venting system instead – may ultimately make it the choice for you.
While gas fires and electric fires may seem very similar in terms of their cleanliness and convenience, one big downside of the latter is the potential for heat to be rendered unavailable if there’s a power cut at your property. When seemingly everything else – at least of an electrical nature – is also inaccessible, that’s not an ideal situation.
A gas fire, by contrast, can continue to keep you warm even while you wait for the power to return. Nor do you have to worry about any complex electronics – all that you need to do is push a button and you will immediately be able to enjoy the heat.
