Planning an extension or need your existing extension heated?
With us all spending more time at home these days we are trying to find ways to improve our homes either by extensions, revamps, adding rooms outside, converting garages or perhaps creating lovely Airbnb's but how are you going to heat it?
Which fuel is best to heat your room, what are the running costs, installation costs, flame effects? These questions are all very important as they all play a major part in choosing which fire is right for you.
We would need to know a few factors to advise on the heat you would require but to discuss 3 options in brief.......
2) Electric Stove: Good electric effect stoves are £500-700 with no installation cost, but max heat would be 2kW. The flame effect produced by lights can work independently from the heater and is about £5.00 for the year (if fitted with LED bulbs) if left on for 365 days of the year! The heater to run would costs about 15p-25p p/kW p/hr depending on your fuel supplier and most are fitted with thermostats and have a remote control. PROS: Instant flame picture & heat by a flick of a switch.
3) Bioethanol Stove: Bio fires range from £550-1000 with no installation cost, produce upto 3kW approx and cost about £0.70 - £1.30 p/hr to run depending on quantity and quality of fuel purchased, so are great for occasional heating and creating an ambiance but are best not to be used as the main heat source but as supplementary. PROS: Produces a real flame without the need of a chimney and generates heat.
