About Hearth Mounted Fires

Hearth mounted fires are generally defined as those which are installed at floor level and set either within a stone or wood mantel or flush against a tiled, stone brick or other non-combustible surface.

According to your preference, there are wood burning only, wood and multi fuel, gas and electric models from which to choose. Many smaller fires have been designed to be installed into the standard fireplace openings typical in many British homes, whilst larger fires may require some building work to construct a special opening.

Riva Gas FiresSo firstly, you need to decide whether you want to burn solid fuel such as logs, smokeless fuels and anthracite or have the ‘switch on’ convenience of gas or electricity. If the fire is to be your prime source of heating for a room then you will need around 1kW of heat for each 14 cu.m. of volume.

Stovax and Gazco offer a wide choice of traditional and contemporary models to suit most homes – and all have several frame options.
