Fireplace Buying Guide

There are many things to consider when choosing the right fireplace for your home. For example do you have a big enough area for a fireplace, what is your budget, how much heat does a gas fire offer compared to an electric fire and which one is more energy efficient? This is not a definitive guide but it will highlight the main points for you to consider. We are on hand to help you every step of the way!


Types of fuel

Electric, gas or multi-fuel, but which one? For those that don’t have a chimney then the best fuel option is electric (although a flueless gas fire can be considered with a wall vent) and also electric is easy to install and requires very little maintenance.

Gas is the cheapest form to have as, unlike wood, there is very little maintenance cost in the first installation. Gas needs a flue to allow the fumes to escape. If you don’t have a chimney or a pre-fabricated flue there are balanced flue models available.


Types of fireplaces

Electric fires
First Choice Fireplaces in Devon have an extensive range of electric fires including wall-mounted, HIW inset fires, outset fires including 2 and 3 sided fires. An electric fire can transform your room offering full customisable options from heat settings to your favourite lighting show.
