As we head into winter, it’s natural to start thinking about the best way to heat your home. With gas prices on a rise at an alarming rate, there has never been a better time to upgrade your ageing fire and replace it with a new highly efficient electric fire or fireplace.

Most assume that electric fires are expensive to run, this was down to the concept of electricity costing more per kWh than gas. However electric fires such as the Flamerite Gotham 1300 are 100% efficient since all the heat goes into the room as no chimney or flue is needed. In comparison, even the most modern gas fires are typically at best only 75-85% efficient.

Ensuring that you have found an efficient and cost-effective way to heat your room is a priority these days with energy bills ever on the rise, we know that our customers can be confident that they will not be faced with an unexpected electricity bill when they use their new Flamerite electric fire.

Whilst electric fireplaces are not designed to be the sole source of heating in a home, they can heat a room much more efficiently than a real fireplace. As no heat is lost, you benefit from 100% of the heat produced.

Choosing a fire with a built-in thermostat means you have full control over the temperature of the room. The fire will keep emitting heat until it reaches the desired temperature, once this is reached, the fire will simply maintain the output. This will use far less energy when compared to using the fire on the maximum heat setting for a period of time.

Electric fires have a realistic flame effect that works independently of the heating, modern electric fires use LED lighting that has a low energy consumption rate meaning you can enjoy the warm glow of the flame effect all year round without the added cost of running a heater when its not required.

As well as being Eco-Design compliant Flamerite Fires use low energy LED lighting with a predicted life of up to 50,000 hours.

When you invest in a fire or fireplace, you want to know that you are buying a product that will stand the test of time. As a proud member of Made in Britain, we have been manufacturing electric fires in the UK since 1999 Flamerite Fires can guarantee that you are purchasing a high quality product that is designed and built to the highest of standards.

Electric fires are sometimes seen as less desirable by those who want a real flame in their fireplace but with the emphasis on the urgency to lower our carbon footprint and become more eco-friendly, It’s never been easier to recreate the warm living atmosphere of a real fire with the convenience, versatility, and efficiency of an electric fire.
