Gas Fire & Fireplace Showrooms In Kent

January 23, 2013

After searching online for fireplaces it is often nice to go in-store and view products that you have been looking at prior to making any commitments. Online shopping is great if you know exactly what you are looking for however it is often difficult to order products if you require specialist knowledge. In Kent there are several specialist fireplace showrooms dedicated to fires and fireplaces that are an ideal place to visit if you need additional help and advice. Some specialist DIY stores like B&Q & Homebase also have several options that could be of interest and the staff have reasonable knowledge about fires and fireplaces.

Purchasing online what you should know:

1. If your considering ordering online, then you should firstly work out what type of fire you intend to install (gas, electric or solid fuel). After making this decision you should then carefully sort through the available options. Gas fires need to be installed by a Gas Safe Registered Installer by law. Electric fires on the other hand can simply be plugged in if you have a working power socket nearby. Solid fuel fireplaces need to be fitted by a HETAS registered installer.

2. Marble fireplaces are much cheaper online. For example products on our website are typically 70% cheaper than most high street like for like alternatives. 3. Stone fireplaces and timber surrounds are also much cheaper online. However the main thing you should consider is the sizes you require and also carefully check that your fireplace is suitable for the type of fire you intend to install.
