Gas Stoves are convenient, efficient and just as attractive as any solid fuel model. With a gas stove, you can enjoy the look of a real log burner without any of the necessary labour that comes with burning solid fuel. Once connected to your gas supply and fit onto your hearth, a gas log burner will be a fantastic focal point offering a cosy display of real flames at just the switch of a button!
You can often install a gas stove into a pre-existing chimney and your first step is to identify the type of chimney you have to which models will be suitable for your chimney, or if your home doesn’t have a chimney, many gas stove models are available in balanced flue versions.
A balanced flue completely seals the appliance from the room into which it is installed, preventing draughts and increasing heating efficiency. No chimney is required to install a balanced flue as a twin-wall pipe vents directly to an outside wall, either horizontally through an external wall or vertically through the roof, depending on the stove selected.
Gas Stoves are glass fronted, keeping as much heat in as possible. The stoves are made of materials that are good conductors of heat, including traditional cast iron and steel. Balanced flue models often have efficiencies of over 80%, making your gas stove a warming addition to the home.
Gas itself also has relatively low CO² emissions, producing less carbon per purchased kW/hr than economy electric, heating oil, anthracite and bituminous coal.
Choosing a gas stove doesn’t mean compromising on style. A variety of designs, from a number of Brands such as Stovax Gazco, Jotul and ACR include a gas versions of highly popular solid fuel models
