Why you should choose a gas stove this New Year

Why you should choose a gas stove this New Year
There’s no denying the benefits of a roaring stove, especially during these dark, winter months. Just imagine snuggling up on the sofa with a hot drink, your favourite TV show in the background or the latest read nestled in your lap, all accompanied by the soft crackle of dancing flames to help warm and relax your family. There are a number of different stoves on the market – multi-fuel, wood-burning, electric – but here are five reasons why you should consider buying a gas stove.


One of the biggest advantages that gas stoves have over other types is the luxury of being able to enjoy immediate flames. With the flick of an ignition, you'll have a roaring fire within seconds (as well as the heat benefits this brings). Time for bed? Well, the flames can be extinguished with just another flick of the switch. 

Minimal mess

One other appeal of having a gas stove installed is being able to keep your home nice and clean - there's no ash or amber, which are common with wood fires or multifuel stoves. Gas stoves are very low maintenance and your chimney won’t need cleaning anywhere near as often. In fact, there is very little that you will need to do on a daily basis to maintain the stove’s cleanliness. Speaking of chimneys…


If you’re thinking of buying a gas stove, one thing you won’t necessarily have to worry about is a chimney. With the option of choosing a balanced flue (as opposed to a conventional flue), which has a double exhaust fitted through an external wall, will allow your stove to draw in fresh air through one pipe whilst expelling waste through the other. Our experts will be able to talk you through the best options for your home.

Energy efficiency

When it comes to stoves in the home, you may well want to think about their energy efficiency. Wood-burning fires certainly look the part (more on that below) but compared with gas stoves, they can be poor performers when it comes to energy efficiency. Gas is the cheapest form of energy, so it stands to reason that choosing a high-efficiency gas stove will prove to be a more affordable way of helping to heat your home.

Great appearance
