Upgrade your home heating with a gas fire

Are you looking for a new heater for your home? If your existing fire is no longer compliant or you’re investigating the right heating options for your home: a gas fire is worth a closer look.

Combining clean fuel with efficient heating, there are many reasons why gas is popular with homeowners. With the latest designs available there’s no need to compromise on style. Let’s take a closer look at Gas Fires and the different styles available.

Enjoy a living flame more, with gas

There are lots of positive benefits associated with adding real flames into your home. Living flames are beautiful and create a feature in any room. However if you have a current wood fire or are investigating one, you will know that wood fires come with their own challenges.

As well as requiring a continuous source of good firewood throughout the colder months, there’s also the work involved in managing that firewood. From the cost of ordering, to stacking it and drying it, then bringing it into your home every day. Not to mention the dust and mess (and occasional cockroaches) that come with it into your house.

That’s why we recommend gas fires to our customers. Gas fires come with all the beauty of a living flame but none of the hard work. Gas comes either from a mains supply or from easy-to-order LPG. There’s no lifting, loading or unloading for you to manage as a homeowner. Enjoying heat from your fire is as simple as switching on a button.

Take control of your energy consumption, with gas.

Gas fires and heaters also have the benefit of being a very efficient way of heating your home. The control that comes from being able to quickly switch on your fire also means you can switch it off as soon as you don’t need it. That means you only pay to heat your home when you need to and you’re only paying for the energy you wanted to consume.

Modern homes with insulation can quickly overheat if you don’t have control of the output of your heat source. Gas makes it easy to adjust how much heat you are receiving and when – putting you in complete control of heating your home.

Enjoy the latest designs of gas fires

Gas heaters have come a long way in the style stakes, and designers have embraced the challenge of making gas fires and heaters a feature in the modern home. There are a wide range of styles available that make it possible for you to choose exactly the right kind of gas fire to complement your home.

East Coast Plumbing and Gas offer our customers the latest range of Rinnai Gas Fires and Heaters, as well as Envirosolve’s Rais Gas Fires.

Introducing Rinnai Gas Fires

If you want to make a statement in your home then the Linear range of gas fires from Rinnai are a good place to start. With each fire you can benefit from FlameTech technology and a choice of either single or double-sided fires – allowing you to make a feature of your fire in more than one room.

FlameTech technology ensures that you get the most from your gas fire experience. Flames are designed to emanate directly from the realistic ceramic logs, with glowing embers and a larger flame height combining to give you all the pleasure of a real fire.

Rinnai Linear Gas Fires are available in a variety of sizes, going up to the impressive LInear 1500 which is a huge 1.5m in width. With ceramic logs that have been carefully designed to look like real driftwood, these wall-mounted fireplaces created an architectural impact in any home. You can even choose the Indoor-Outdoor option and enjoy the beauty of your fire outside while enjoying the warmth inside.
