North West's Premier Fireplace Showroom Extension Now Underway!
If you're based in the North West and looking for a new Fire, Fireplace or Stove, The Heat Depot showroom is definitely worth a visit! Visitors travel considerable distances to see our stunning displays of live Gas Fires, Electric Fires and Wood Burning Stoves from top brands - many of which you won't find online. The combination of our stunning displays, competitive pricing and a sales team with vast experience in this area result in what we believe in an unbeatable shopping experience. The good news for the upcoming heating season is this is about to get even better with our new second phase of our showroom extension!
Whilst our existing showroom area caters for all tastes, budgets and requirements, manufacturers are constantly updating their ranges to conform to regulations and fashions and we are now underway with the showroom extension that will more than double the size and include even greater choice for the discerning homeowner. Fires and Stoves from new Premium suppliers, a huge dedicated area for electric fires, suites and wall-mounted electric fires due to the increase in their popularity plus new, cutting-edge 'high-end' designer gas fires for those looking for the ultimate in style and performance.
New brands that will be showcased include Element4. One of the Netherlands premier manufacturers of designer gas fires which are popular with designers, architects and trend-conscious consumers worldwide. Built with a strong focus on design, their range include spectacular models such as their Modore 240H (which we will be displaying) which extends to an astonishing 2.4 metres in length!
Another breathtaking model from Element4 which will also be featured in our Fireplace Showroom in Manchester is the Sky T shown in the image below. A double-sided gas fire taller than any other which features a double burner producing a beautiful fire experience as the flames are spread over the full depth of the fireplace. In addition, you can easily switch off one of the burners for optimum control of the heat and the flame picture.
Technology is very important for Element4. Their highly advanced fires benefit from the most advanced technical features; the fireplaces are efficient to use, can be operated remotely and have an adjustable flame picture. Guaranteed to attract attention, but at the same time they provide powerful heating performance combined with excellent high efficiency.
All gas models in the Element4 range are balanced flue fires so they do not require a chimney. Due to their size and output, they can be fitted into the room, built around and dedicated balanced flue pipework vents the fumes (and allows air into the fire) to a nearby outside wall or through the roof. So if you're looking to give your interior extra warmth and ambiance, why not come and talk to us about the extensive collection of Element4.
Another new brand we are proud to add to our extensive range is The Collection by Michael Miller. Part of the BFM Europe Group (Kinder, Flavel, Celsi), 'The Collection' is their exclusive brand design concept nurtured by their research and development team. Following on from how fireplace trends are moving, the gas fires in the range are much larger than standard sized fires and can be supplied as fire only or in their own dedicated fireplace suites. Incredible flame picture and heating performance providing a lovely, cosy atmosphere in both contemporary and classical settings.
Popular models in The Collection range which we will be installing in our new showroom include the Da Vinci Illumia suite (pictured below). Sure to be the center of attention in any home. Its highly realistic log fuel bed is complemented by a beautiful and mesmerising lazy flame. The classically designed, natural Limestone surround will suit any decor and the inset log gas fire with non-reflective glass panel offers a choice of brick effect or black enamel interior panels creating your own distinctive style. The Da Vinci has recently been updated and now features a slimmer fire depth making it more suited to standard chimney installations plus there's a Balanced Flue model also offered for flat wall installations in properties without a chimney or flue.
Due to another huge increase in their popularity, we will be focusing heavily on electric fires and fireplaces in our showroom extension and allocating a large, dedicated space to these versatile products. We have found that even homeowners living in properties which have a chimney or flue are requesting electric due to the latest models boasting incredible flame visuals which can be enjoyed all year round.
Extensive styles of electric fires will appeal to all tastes. One type that has proved to be a favourite recently is inset wall-mounted electric fires that are built into the wall raised up from the floor. In most instances, a stud wall is needed to be constructed to accommodate the appliance depth but this can also provide a great solution if you plan to fit your TV above as it can conceal cables and be a handy place to build a storage solution for media boxes, DVD players etc. Flamerite Fires have even released a range of fires that include a pre-constructed false chimney breast and plinth area ready to take your television - a complete solution that can be fitted easily into almost any room!
Our showroom will also feature free-standing electric suites with the surround, back panel, hearth and fire in a 'one-box' solution that can be placed up to a flat wall and plugged in. 3-sided electric fires which provide a 180° view of the authentic flames are also a relatively new option and look superb in modern interiors. For those who prefer more classical in style, we will also have plenty of marble and stone fireplaces with a vast selection of interchangeable inset electric fires allowing you to create a unique centerpeice in your home.
