The heat is... off!

Whatever the weather, if you have a contemporary electric fire, chances are it will include a flame only setting – this allows homeowners to turn the heat off but still enjoy the fabulous light and flame effects of their fire.

The great thing about most electric fires is that they usually don’t need any specialist installation, however, Heat Installers is very busy as we fit built-in or inset fires. This can involve building a stud wall which allows the fire to be fitted into a recess. A recessed area means you can hide all those messy cables and satellite TV boxes and makes the room look much smarter.

In addition, as modern properties in Greater Manchester can be quite featureless and boxy, the Heat Installers team are building more false chimney breasts for an electric fire. This is then painted a different colour to the rest of the walls and adds interest and character to a plain room.

If you like the idea of making your fire the focal point of your home in Greater Manchester all year round then we can recommend some fabulous electric fires that boast state of the art flame effect and fuel bed features.

The Flamerite Gotham 1300 really does allow the flames to do the talking with huge 1300mm wide 3d effect flames. These flames look even deeper thanks to a lever operated ‘Omniglide’ glass front which gives the illulsion of extra depth. You can even control the fire from an App and if your Manchester home style is contemporary, this is the fire for you.
