Gas log fires deliver all the atmosphere and charm of a wood heater or fireplace, without the ongoing hassle and mess of managing a woodpile. They are an environmentally responsible, safe and efficient alternative heating solution for homes of all sizes.
Gas log heaters and gas fireplaces have come a long way in design, performance and installation options. We have a huge selection of inbuilt and freestanding gas heaters, to suit every home and décor. From traditional log style fires and decorative fireplaces, to exciting contemporary designs featuring sleek lines and elegant finishes.
Glass fronted sealed units provide excellent energy efficiency and heat larger areas quickly. Open gas log fire boxes are not as efficient as the closed units but provide a dramatic and inviting ambiance. These gas heaters are perfect if your home has central heating or other heaters and you are after the atmosphere of an open flame.
