Gas Safe replaced CORGI in 2009 to undertake the fitting or servicing of a gas appliance in England, Scotland and Wales. Any engineer that handles a gas appliance should be suitably qualified and registered with Gas Safe
HETAS is the official body recognised by Government to approve biomass and solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services, including the registration of competent installers and servicing businesses.
Our stunning selection of electric fires mean that you can have the warming glow effect of a fire without the heat.
Delivery charges are included in our installation prices. For supply-only purchases, local delivery is available at a cost. Please contact the showroom for more information.
Yes. Gas Safe recommend that all gas appliances are serviced every 12 months, regardless of how often they are used. This not only ensures the safety of your fire but can also extend its life too.

The answer to this question is YES. Your fire would need to be a balanced flue as it would need to flue through the back to an external wall or go off the top and out through the roof. There are many options to choose from and they are also highly efficient.
We can safely say the answer is NO. The government recently confirmed in its environmental improvement plan 2023 that it is NOT considering a ban on domestic burning in England. The government is aware that for some households it is their primary source for heating, hot water and cooking. All our wood burning stoves are to Ecodesign regulations and are Defra approved.
We only recommend using kiln dried logs on your stove as these burn much better. We usually suggest a soft wood like silver birch to get your stove going, then swapping over to a harder wood such as oak or beech as these burn much slower.
We recommend that you get your chimney/flue swept once a year.
Yes. We have many suppliers that can accommodate us when we need to get a fireplace made to a special size.
To put a TV above your gas fire you would need a non-combustible beam/shelf in place. These can be made to measure. The distance between the fire and the beam will all depend on the fire and the manufacturers guidelines.
Electric fires vary from 1.5kw to 2kw of heat. Unlike your gas fires, the heat is instant and can warm a room quickly. If you are using your fire for heat for lengthy periods of time, then a gas fire would be more cost efficient.
