Nothing is cosier than sitting in front of the fire on a chilly evening and, thanks to the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC), you could be doing just that if you enter this exclusive Ideal Home competition to win a brand new and stylish gas fire worth £1,000.
With no ash residue, odours or logs to store, a gas fire is always ready to use and requires minimal maintenance. When using a gas fire, you also have instant warmth without the expense of switching on your entire central heating system. What’s more, a gas fire is up to 50% cheaper to run than electric alternatives, so this is welcome news for households looking to lower their energy bills.
Advancements in the design and technology of gas fires also now means that gas fires are safer than ever to use. Modern systems are also fitted with oxygen depletion sensors or thermostatic switches to protect owners from the effects of carbon monoxide. These measures detect when oxygen levels fall below safe levels and automatically turn the gas supply off, making gas fires ideal for family homes across the UK.
The good news is that 11 million homes across the UK are already ‘gas fir e ready’ with a chimney and gas point, so in most cases it’s easy to install your new cosy centre piece.
