Electric fires with realistic flames are growing in popularity year on year and are now available to people who in the past may not have been able to have a feature fireplace in their home.

If you have a busy family home that includes children and pets, safety is paramount, so you may lean towards choosing an electric fire. As they can give out the right amount of heat without heating up, preventing burnt fingers, toes, and paws.

Electric fires are also energy efficient; they have a longer life span than gas or wood-burning equivalents. Since it runs off electricity, you don’t have to worry about corrosion or rust issues that can occur in other fireplaces. Furthermore, they are low maintenance and suitable for all homes as you don’t need a chimney, flues and a link.

When it comes to choosing a new gas fire, it can be more complicated than you think. Naturally, you want to choose something that fits with the décor of your home and is a focal point.

However, there are a few things you need to consider such as Glass Fronted Gas Fires, the most efficient of gas fires, as they use traditional, and conventional flue systems which help radiate around the room.

Balanced Flue Gas Fires are ideal with you don’t have a flue. They are supplied with their own flue terminals. Meaning they can vent gases etc out through an external wall. They also have a glass front section, which is completely sealed, with no energy being wasted.

If you are looking for a more traditional style coal fire, then an Open Front Gas Fire is the one for you. You will be able to have something that looks like a ‘real’ fire, whilst having radiant heat. However, it is not as efficient as other gas fire models.
