I am thinking about buying a wall hung electric fire for my lounge as they seem to be
a) cheaper than gas fires to buy
b) no fitting costs
- I reckon that the cost of a gas fire over an electric fire is almost double by the time you have had it fitted properly and that for that £300+ you could probably get a good whack of electricity to run the electric fires. I have managed to find out how to calculate electricity usage but am finding it difficult to find a fire that gives the input requirement information so I can't check it out for certain. I also don't know how much it costs to run a gas fire and I need all of this information to make a good, informed decision.
Anyone give me any advice on this - I know we have experts in all sorts of things on HUKD and am hoping to pick your brains! Thanks!
