We had a customer visit our showrooms with a view to installing a new gas fire and fire surround. They were able to look at our large range of gas fires and fireplaces on display and discuss what would be suitable for their room and existing chimney. Once they had chosen a fire and fireplace, our engineer visited their home for a free survey to check that the products would be suitable for the size of the room, the chimney and the availability of a gas service and pipework.
The chimney would be smoke tested to confirm its suitability to accept a gas fire and this is done by lighting a smoke bomb in the fireplace opening and checking the rooms and roof space above to check that no smoke is escaping into them.
Next an agreement was made on the costs involved to supply and fit the fire and fireplace and these included removing and disposing of the old fire and fireplace and supplying the new fire, fireplace and hearth. Additionally, if necessary, making good the plaster around the fireplace and any pipework for the gas supply.
Once the old fire and fire surround had been removed, our engineer installed the new Amorina white micro marble fire surround and a Chollerton gas inset fire.
‘The 22″ Chollerton gas fire is a widescreen glass-fronted fire, providing an impressive 88% efficiency and maximum heat output of 4.4kW. Available with a choice of trim finishes including Brass, Chrome, Nickel and Brushed Steel with an Anthracite profiled edge, the Chollerton provides a panoramic vision of dancing flames. Designed for installation into a wider 22″ cut out back panel, the fire comes with the convenience of fitting cleanly into a standard chimney opening with no remedial or building work to extend the chimney breast.’ www.elginandhall.co.uk
