Email email@example.com with your question or fax Ask The Experts 9689 5399. HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS Amanda Anderson has an open fireplace but it is impractical for her to buy firewood, she wants to know what she can do. Real Flame developer and designer Mark Kingdon says, whether Mrs Anderson wants to use the fireplace for warmth or simply for ambience, they can supply something elegant. It must be practical as well as appealing, what would you suggest? We can retrofit a glass-fronted gas fireplace to any existing fireplace.The glass enables the heat loss to be slowed, providing more efficient heat into the room. We can create the warmth and ambience of an open fire at the flick of a switch and add accessories and mantelpieces. Are the running costs economical? You can use either bottled or natural gas and both of these are efficient and cost effective. Do we have to have the glass? No, but you will lose heat, similar to the open fire where the heat disappears up the chimney. How safe are the fireplaces? Our fireplaces have the latest safety devices including flame failure and oxygen depletion systems. Do you have something that would fit into a Victorian house? Yes and all of our products have been meticulously finished using only the highest quality materials, with styles ranging from classic to contemporary. My husband is very clever would he be able to fit it? It can be a DIY product however a gas fitter must connect the unit. We can supply all the information needed to make the process easier if you wish to DIY. Do you have any models that we can see? Our showroom has more than 20 working models for heating, part heating and part decorative or purely decorative. What are the decorative heaters. These are ideal for those who want the ambience of an open fire and have another source of primary heating. Do you install? Yes, we build and install the units.
