Gas Fires


Most gas fires at our fireplace showrooms tend to mimic the experience of traditional log or coal fires. Rather than using genuine firewood or coal, they use artificial substitutes, often made from ceramic fibre strand material. The use of synthetic materials produces a pleasant flame without the hassle of ash or soot deposits.


This makes gas fires a far more modern, efficient and low-maintenance alternative to traditional open fireplaces, wood burning stoves and multifuel stoves.


They are also incredibly convenient and efficient. Once fitted by our accredited gas fire installers, your new gas fire will ignite with the flick of a switch, warming up your Sunningdale home in no time at all.


And, to really maximise your new purchase, why not come down to our fireplace showrooms for a new surround?



Wood Burning Stoves


For a more rustic charm, you really can’t beat a wood burning stove. Not only are they carbon neutral, but they also come in a range of designs to suit both contemporary and period properties alike. And, just like multifuel stoves, they do not require an external power source to operate. This means that you only pay for the fuel you use and ensures that you can stay warm if there is a power cut.


At our fireplace showrooms, we also stock DEFRA exempt wood burners. This allows you to burn wood in your appliance, even if you live in a smoke control area.


Our gas fire installers have the knowledge and skill to install wood burning stoves, and all kinds of appliances, in homes around Sunningdale.



Electric Fires


One of the most appealing features of electric fireplaces is that you can enjoy the visual effect, even without turning on the heating element. They are extremely safe, as there is no chance of a gas leak and no risk from burning logs or coals. However, they do still capture that traditional charm of a more rustic fireplace, thanks to their displays of dancing flames.


Many electric fires even come with a remote control, enabling you to turn on your appliance with ease.



Multifuel Stoves


These stoves have a similar design and functionality to wood burners. However, in addition to burning firewood, they also burn a wide range of other types of fuel efficiently and effectively. This enables you to use authorised or smokeless fuels, such as anthracite, if you live in a smoke control zone.


Our gas fire installers can also supply and fit DEFRA exempt models, for your convenience.
