Why choose a gas stove
Posted on 28 November 2016
Gas fireplaces, gas fire inserts and free-standing gas stoves have grown in popularity throughout the UK in recent years.
Gas fires don't produce any creosote, which is a huge benefit because creosote is one of the most common causes of chimney and house fires. Gas fires are 100% soot and creosote free. Gas heating appliances do not require as much cleaning and maintenance as other fires.

Types of Gas heating Appliances
Outset living flame effect high efficiency gas fires sit on a hearth rather than being inset into the chimney. They are glass fronted and work much in the same way as any inset glass fronted fire.
These are incredibly versatile and efficient. You don't need a chimney at all. One of the best aspects of a gas stove is the fact that it requires little to no maintenance or cleaning. Plenty of options to choose from including variations in style, colour, model, shape and capacity.
Gas Fire Inserts
If you want to save space, and opt for a modern gas fire, then an inset is ideal. These devices fit securely within a wall, or in an existing masonry firebox. This prevents drafts and reduces heat loss. Exhaust gases from the fire are carried away through one of the two pipes used in a venting gas fireplace insert.
These gas fires depict an effervescent flame that shows a certain fuel effect. The room is given a welcoming ambience, adding a great deal of warmth to the room. Some of these fuel effects include log fires, coal fires or gas fires.
