Thinking About Installing A Stove?

If you want to have a cosy home this autumn and winter without incurring spiraling fuel costs, why not invest in a wood or multi-fuel stove? Industry studies have shown you can save at least one third on your heating bill by installing a stove. According to the Stove Industry Alliance (SIA), a wood burning stove is 77% cheaper per kilowatt hour (kWh) to run than an electric fire, 29% cheaper than a gas fire, and around 43% and 50% cheaper than an oil and LPG fire respectively. Not only that, but it will create a beautiful center piece that will make your home much more desirable.

We are an independent retailer with over 20 years experience. In our showroom we stock a wide range of good quality stoves including Charnwood, Morso, Stovax, ACR. Euroheat and Hunter.

So if you are think you’d like to find out more about installing a stove, why not come into our showroom or give us an initial call? We can discuss your requirements and give you an idea of the costs involved.

Is it really June!

It’s really not been the greatest of weather this June. In fact it has been decidedly cold! If you don’t have a stove you may well have been forced into switching your central heating back on and unnecessarily heating the whole house. With a stove you can simply burn a few logs in the evening to take the chill off and save a surprising amount on fuel bills. So why not give us a call or drop into the showroom and find out a bit more. We are generally quieter over the summer so timelines are shorter and if you get a stove fitted by us before end August, we’ll give you 10% off all hardware.

Don’t forget, we stock or can order all the spare parts for your stove or open fire.  We also carry a wide range of fire side accessories.

Summer Giftware

We have a lot of new stock in that could make a lovely and more unusual gift for friends and family, or why not just treat yourself! From candle holders, lamps, vases , terramundi pots and side tables right through to garden accessories, including, would you believe, bird feeders in the shape of teapots or fir cones! Come in and have a look.
