So you’re in the market for a stove, but which one are you going to get? Many people opt for gas stoves, but why is this? What do they have to offer in the way of advantages? Let’s find out some of the main advantages of having such a stove, so you can work out if it is the best option for you in your home.
The ‘mains’ advantage
A little pun on words there perhaps, but gas stove fires are superbly easy to use once they’re connected to your mains gas supply. Simply switch them on, adjust the temperature and off you go. We don’t all have the space or inclination to have a multi fuel stove that takes wood, so in this case a gas powered stove can offer the ideal solution.
Great energy efficiency
We’re all aware of how important it is to be energy efficient nowadays. Not only is it good for the environment, it’s good for your pocket too. The more efficient your gas stove is, the more money you’ll save and the more heat you’ll enjoy.
Most often you’ll get a minimum of 70% efficiency with gas stoves, climbing to an impressive 89% at most. Imagine the effect that can have on your heating bills.
A choice of stoves available
You’ll see plenty of different gas stoves on the market today. Normally people would have either a conventional gas stove or one with a balanced flue. You’ll see flueless gas stoves as well, but you’re better off opting for one of the two mentioned above for better efficiency.
Obviously you’ve got plenty of stove options to consider, but gas could well turn out to be the best one of the lot. Providing you already have a mains gas supply it is a superb way to have a stove professionally installed to provide you with heat whenever you want it – not to mention a stunning focal point.
And of course there are plenty of different gas stoves around both small and large, so whatever would suit your home is just waiting to be found.
