What are the key differences between fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, electric fires, flueless gas fires and the rest?


Some fuels burn more efficiently than others in certain conditions. But it is also about the ambience that different fireplaces and stoves can create. If your chimney is functioning and the flue is in good working order then you might prefer a traditional wood-burning stove, log-burning stove or Victorian fireplace for your period property or cottage. Combined with a marble or stone fire surround, the latter will add a rarified sense of grandeur to any dining room or lounge, but it does take a while to get going. Ventilation is also an important consideration, as is practicality. You’ll be clearing away ash on a regular basis. First thing’s first though: check with your Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh authority to see if you live in a Smoke Control Area – fireplace installation specialists in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh may also know this.

Compact freestanding stoves, either multi-fuel, gas, oil or electric, have become very popular in recent years as homeowners try to rekindle the open-fire romance of yesteryear. But if efficiency, lower energy bills and fuss-free heating are more important, a gas fire scores highly, particularly the flueless gas fire variety, which draws waste gases out through a duct. You will also have much better control of the temperature. That said, the gold standard of sustainable heating and performance is the bioethanol fireplace – smoke-free, odourless and not a speck of ash to be seen. Meanwhile, fans of sleek and minimal design will melt away at the sight of a hole in the wall gas fire. These preserve valuable floor space, will comfortably heat a small living room and come in a variety of beguiling forms – a fire ribbon row of flames, a fire bowl or fire basket with pebbles. It’s like magic. Ask your fireplace installation expert in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh or local showroom to show you all of the different types so you can clearly see the difference.

Tips on buying a fireplace, stove or burner for your home:


Safety is crucial when dealing with fireplaces so this is probably one to leave to the experts. Look for Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh fireplace showrooms and installation specialists that are approved by HETAS, a government-recognised body that accredits the most competent installers and servicing businesses. Also, on new fireplaces, look for the CE mark on the fireplaces and stoves that they recommend. This confirms “the manufacturer’s declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives.”

When considering your options, talk with your fireplace installation specialist in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh about the size of area you wish to heat, the current sources of heat (such as central heating), potential heat loss (through windows, for example) and degree of insulation. If your home is modern or well insulated it probably makes sense to choose a fireplace, fire or stove that works efficiently on a low setting to avoid over heating!
