  • Fireplace advice

    Can someone share his experience about the choice of fireplace. I've found some great info on the web about gas fireplaces but I'm not sure weather to get a gas fire or a wood burning one.
    Any experiences and practical advice will be greatly appreciated

    Can't advise much as as of 2 years ago we have no fireplace, had it removed along with the draft that it produced.
    Previously used gas and prior to that coal, albeit fifity decades ago.
    I suspect like coal the wood can be messy and more cumbersome so I'd choose gas on that basis.
    It is worth looking at thBTU output figure of the various fires, I replaced one in aflat we were selling with a modern flame effect one andnot that I wsa bothered, as it was for appearance purposes, but the output was half the one it replaced.

          Hi

          Wood fire places create a very homely feel, but gas fireplaces are good fireplaces too. Gas fireplaces are popular and they are continously improving as manufacturers make improvements each year. They are not only efficient but also certain models are so well engineered that you cant even tell that it is gas burning instead of wood.

            Yea I agree, wood burning fires are the most cosy in my view and add the most design value.

              With the every increasing price of gas a wood buring one is the only choice!
              It will add value to your home too.

                Last year I replaced my wood burning stove and bought a gas fireplace from HotPrice. I found it better than wood burning stove. As I can turn on or off with the flip of a switch unlike a wood burning fireplace. It does not need a chimney. At HotPrice you can get both types of fireplace, choose one of them.
