Get the most out of your fireplace

EVERY year, in June, the fireplace industry gathers in Harrogate for the Hearth and Home Exhibition.

EVERY year, in June, the fireplace industry gathers in Harrogate for the Hearth and Home Exhibition.

It’s a chance for the movers and shakers in the industry to show off the latest designs and impress with new technology.

At Berkshire Fireplace Centre, they enjoy keeping up to date and helping their customers choose from the massive variety of fires, stoves and fireplaces now on offer.

Most of what they saw at the exhibition is coming on-stream and they will be getting new products on display in their showroom as they become available.

Electric fires continue to be ever more realistic and LED technology is allowing for improved flame-effects along with greater efficiency and longer life.

Innovative designs include three-sided hang-on-the-wall fires and mirror flame effects giving slim fires the impression of a deep fuel bed.

Gas fire manufacturers continue to develop ever more efficient fires and an often forgotten fact is that gas fires can still be cheaper to run than many solid fuel fires. The increasing range of balanced flue fires available means that you don’t have to have a chimney to have a fire that is both stunning and highly efficient. Such fires should definitely be considered at an early stage when planning an extension.

For lovers of woodburning stoves, traditional designs often hide the modern technology used to get the best flame picture and highest efficiency.

The range of modern solid fuel cassette fires continues to expand with more designs to suit every taste.

While not all the new fires are available just now, at Berkshire Fireplace Centre they do have one of the most comprehensive ranges on display. Their knowledgeable staff can talk you through the choices to help you find your ideal fireplace. And they offer complete project management from survey, to design and installation giving you peace of mind.

Visit their showroom at 346-8 Oxford Road, Reading, RG30 1AQ. They are open 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday.

Don’t miss their refurbishment sale with a wide variety of stock and ex-display models at heavily discounted prices to make way for their new season displays.
