Is life really a gas? A story behind a gas fireplace.
Is life really a gas? So, you're sold on the idea of a real fire adding that gorgeous homely warmth and ambience to your room. You like the idea of having a gas fire because you only want to pay for the fuel that you actually use and you like the idea that gas burns with a lovely real flame. There is also something traditional about gas: it's the clean, modern successor of messy open fires, gas is more or less a national industry and it is piped directly into your house via some magic, invisible means that you don't have to worry about. All things considered, a gas fire seems like one solution to your heating needs. Is it though? Let's consider the issues. In terms of supply, is gas even available as an option? If you live in mainland Great Britain, there would probably not be a problem in having gas piped to your house. If you live in Northern Ireland, however, mains gas is a relatively new phenomenon. If you are not on the gas main, do you want to have brightly coloured gas canisters standing at the side of your house? These are things to think about. OK, so you are on the gas main. Has there been a day recently when you haven't seen a television advertisement for a website that urges you to compare your home energy outgoings? How do you choose a supplier? Despite the Regulator's efforts, there remains a bewildering array of providers and tariffs to choose from ... By far the biggest challenge, however, remains that a gas fire requires you have a fireplace to accommodate the fire. This also means that you need a flue to take away the results of the combustion efficiently and safely, which would probably need to feed into an external wall chimney. Your fireplace will also need an electricity supply. Even when you have this infrastructure in place, you would need to have your fire fitted by a registered fitter and properly serviced every twelve months. So you are probably going to need the services of a builder and a gas fitter to get your fireplace sorted out. Sounds like a lot of hassle, right? Well, the good news is that if you want your living space to benefit from the warmth and homeliness of a real flame, there is an alternative. A Bio Ethanol Fire.
