It has never been a better time to purchase a new modern gas insert fire for your Merseyside home. Gas insert fires are better, warmer, safer and more gas efficient than ever. Over the last 5 years gas fires have been developed to be at the cutting edge of gas efficiency for the end user all leaning to saving money in the long run with gas bills. Modern user friendly fires have 3-sided ceramic sides inside the fire box which work with a similar ceramic fuel base to boost heat output into your room. In addition the top outlet of the fire which expels any harmful fumes is a third the size it used to be (going back more than 5 years ago). Rather than the outlet being on top of the fire box, it is now placed at the back of the fire, like a periscope. This is also designed to reduce annoying howling winding and debris falling from the chimney.

If these issues sound familiar then a modern gas fire is the solution to your old gas fire which may be 5 years or older making annoying winds and falling debris a thing of the past. Efficiency plays a big role in choosing the correct fire and all these new factors help to make a better, warmer fire for the end user. NOW is the best time to buy a new gas fire.

If you or somebody you know suffers from a bad back or find it difficult to kneel down to light your gas fire manually then help is at hand. Modern gas fires are now more user friendly with the choice of easy to use electronic manual control for outset fires, remote control, slide control and top button control buttons. Its time to make your life easy and be warm at night throughout your home without having to worry about rising gas bills and the uncomfortable fuss over lighting your gas fire.

Keeping your old coal set on your fire is now a thing of the past and a modern fire allows for a change of visual appearance any time in the future and with very little cost to you. Modern insert fires have the potential for future replacement fire trims and frets, only held by magnets and so easy to replace. More than 5 years ago fire trims where screwed and fixed to fire boxes with no room for change. Fuel beds where also a fixed unit however fuel beds today in modern fires can be changed too from coal beds to pebble fuel beds, or even to log fuel beds.

Many old fires* needed an air vent installed at the same time as the gas inset fire. Any fire under 7kw input does not require an air vent so replacing your fire or just simply the gas engine can now result in doing away with the air vent. *(Does not refer to flueless fires.) In the interest of safety your gas fire should be serviced subject to the manufacturers terms and conditions every 12 months.
