Gas fireplaces and gas log fire heaters can add to the ambiance of any room while supplying welcoming warmth to your entire home. Freestanding or easily retro-fit into existing fireplace and heater openings, gas fireplaces and gas log fire heaters are an easy way to add character, warmth and value to your home.
Wood vs Gas Firelplaces
Wood fires have that classic appeal that spans generations. Some people prefer the crackle and pop of a real Wood Heater, whereas others prefer the convenience of a Gas Log Fire that doesn’t need to be refilled, or supplied with wood. At the end of the day both kinds of heater work brilliantly as heating sources so it comes down to personal preference.
Freestanding vs Inbuilt
A freestanding heater radiates heat in a wider area immediately around it, but also takes up a lot of space within the room itself which much be considered. Depending on your circumstances with children and pets it may not be ideal to have a freestanding heater in the open, in which case an in built heater that fits flush with your wall may be a better option. Some people do like to put a pot of tea on a freestanding heater to help warm them inside and out!
