Gas fires are often seen purely as a decorative addition to a room rather than an efficient heating option. Along with developments in realistic flame patterns, a New Zealand-designed and manufactured range of open gas fires has opened the door to utilising them as a primary heat source within a room or area of the home.

As technology develops in other areas and our living situations evolve around, for example, the growing size of television screens, gas fires are developing concurrently with slimmer, wider designs in vogue. “What we’re seeing is that people want to offset the size of the television with wider gas fires, which are often installed underneath the television,” Real Fires’ Jono Boundy says.

Open Gas Fires For Your Home

Real Fires have been in the market for more than two decades, continually researching and developing their technology to create the perfect gas fire. “Real Fires are unique. They all include a fan that transfers the heat, which is where they are more effective than open log fires,” Jono says.

Real Fires have also developed an insulation layer for their fireboxes, which protects the cavity of framing the fire is set into, but in turn, increases the heat output.

“These open gas fires can now realistically be used as the primary heat source for areas of up to 80 – 100 square metres,” Jono says. “We’re finding that with some of our larger models they are actually too efficient for some new builds that are extremely well insulated.

“There is a common misconception of open gas fires being purely decorative, however that’s not the case with any Real Fire. All our ranges are designed to do far more than just look good and they are well known to be the open gas fire of choice when heating is required.”

Gas fires are often installed into open plan areas that incorporate kitchen, living and dining, and will easily heat these areas, while also providing an easy and ambient feature for the space.

In older homes, where insulation is lacking and windows aren’t double glazed, more heating can be required, and Real Fires offers various complimentary heating options including central gas heating. “In these sorts of situations, an open gas fire can still be a primary heat source but it may need to be supplemented.”

And, while using an open gas fire as a design object is still high on the priority of many, the ability to use it as a primary heat source means it becomes a much more functional object of beauty in the home. And with gas, there’s no need for the level of maintenance and cleaning required with an open fire, chopping and stacking of wood, and removing ash.

As we look towards more sustainable ways of living and for options that allow less time to run, open gas fires seem to be the way forward for ambient home heating.
