Many newspapers are reporting that the freezing weather could lead to the rationing of gas supplies if it continues for much longer! With prices for gas and electricity rocketing over the past five years and with further price hikes likely, more and more people are turning to solid fuel as a way of guarding against reliance on gas and electricity. Wood buring stoves are up to 80% energy efficient, carbon neutral and cheaper to run per KW per hour than electricity or gas appliances. If you are thinking abou converting to a stove or open fire we would be happy to advise and provide a free survey.
As spring is approaching it is an ideal time to start getting your chimney and fireplace alterations done. At Home fire and fuels we offer a full range of building works from pointing a chimney stack to smoke testing a flue right through to re building a chimney or a new fireplace. We also install flexible flue liners for open fires and stoves. The work is carried out by experienced HETAS qualified builders. To discuss your requirements or to arrange a free survey please call us on the above number.
Home fires and fuels provide a no obligation free installation survey across Stockport, South Manchester and East Cheshire. A qualified HETAS fitter will visit you to assess your needs and we will provide a written itemised quotation. We will do this whether you purchase your stove from us or not. We also offer a NACS qualified chimney sweep service and sealed smoke test as a first stage to determine whether a liner is required with a stove fitting.
Weather forecasters have predicted another long cold spell ahead so time to stock up on dry logs, coal or briquettes from Home fires and fuels. We sell only very dry seasoned and kiln dried logs and briquettes and coals and provide a free delivery service. Don't let this cold spell catch you out. See our 'logs and solid fuel' page for further information.
Are you fed up with buying damp logs and coal? At 'Home fires' we source the best quality, very dry seasoned logs from local tree surgeons in the Stockport and Manchester area and deliver to your door from our central fuel depot in Chadkirk in Stockport on a regular basis. Our pre - packaged kiln dried logs, Hotties and 'paper' briquettes are all very low in moisture and ideal for your wood burning or multi fuel stove. We also supply smokeless coals. For consistent quality and very dry fuels at low cost - contact us now.
Believe it or not but winter officially ends this week, even though weather forecasters predict another three weeks at least of very cold weather. Now that the mad rush has ended it is a great time to go ahead and get your multifuel or wood burning stove fitted. As an incentive we are offering - for the month of March only - a £50 voucher redeemable on any Homefires and fuels product (accessory / basket / logs etc.) when you purchase a stove from us. We already offer all our appliances at discounts of at least 10% of recommended retail prices (a saving of around £85 on most of our stoves) and our 'Match price promise' ensures that you will not find a better like for like price- so pop into see us or call to discuss.
A report from the Stove industry alliance shows that you can save a great deal of money by upgrading from an open fire - at 32% efficiency or decorative gas fire - 20% efficiency, to an efficient wood burning stove - with upwards of 70% efficiency. The research confirms that wood burning is carbon neutral and works out at at least 25% cheaper than gas and over 80% cheaper than electricity. At home fires we offer a full fitting service with ongoing advice and a range of some of the most efficient stoves you can buy. For further information visit www.stoveindustryalliance.com
