Gas v’s Electric


What do YOU want YOUR fire for

80% of the time?




Of the time for EFFECT only

Then Electric would be better


These are our reasons


Effect Only, our new range of LED Electric fires

Cost approx. £ 0.01 for 10 hours of effect

With a 2kW Fan Heater available on demand

1st kW = Approx £0.10 per hour

2nd kW = Appox. £0.10 per hour


Make this electric option

190 times cheaper than the gas fire per hour

Based on using just the effect


But twice as expensive than the gas when using the heat (for hours)

2 kWs for Quarter of an hour would be approx. £0.05

To give the room a boost

Then back to just flame effect





Of the time for HEAT

Then GAS would be better


These are our reasons


With gas you get the Effect and the heat

at the same time

Our High efficiency glass fronted gas fires have a heat output of 4kW

(on the highest setting)

This costs approx. £0.19 per hour

This will give you a three dimensional living flame effect and up to

4kW of heat for £0.19 per hour

Compared with the electric costing Approx £0.21 per hour

for only 2 kW (half the heat)

Makes the gas fire almost half the cost of electric when using for heat *




*Please note, the cost of installation and annual servicing

should also been taken into account when making your decision




















We hope this has been useful?
