Wood burners and electric stoves are two very different fireplace solutions. There are many differences, from the way they are installed and the kind of atmosphere they will create in your home. Of course, they function very differently too. But the most important question often is, how effectively will they warm up the room they are in?

A new fire or stove should not be an impulse purchase, there are many things to consider to make sure you make the right decision for you and your home.
The first thing you’ll want to consider is the fuel type. Are you looking for real, dancing flames of a woodburning appliance, or do you want convenience and instant heat from gas? Or you may want spectacular colours and LED lighting from an electric stove or fire.
Although often contemporary looking, hole in the wall fires have actually been around for many years. The way fireplaces are being installed has changed thus increasing the popularity of hole in the wall fires. Hole in the wall fireplaces traditionally required a hearth to be mounted on the floor in front of the fireplace. Today however, selected designs have been officially tested and approved to be installed without the need for a hearth.
In recent years we have seen a rise in popularity in electric fires. This could be down to the fact that there are so many stylish designs available. Or because they are an attractive option for renters, as they are pretty much plug in, and play – with no need for alterations to a property, which is more associated with wood burning stoves or gas fires. Many electric fires can be moved from room to room or house to house easily too.
