  • How To Protect You and Your Family Against Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

    Everyone is aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide, but, do you know how to protect you and your family against it?

    What is carbon monoxide?

    Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is given off when you burn any type of fuel. Usually, it passes harmlessly out of the top of the chimney. However, CO gas can enter your property. This usually happens if the chimney is blocked, the appliance is faulty or if the ventilation to the fire is inadequate in some way. Although you cannot see, taste or smell CO gas, it can kill quickly and without any warning.

    Tiger Clean Burn Wood Burning/Multi-Fuel Stove at £424.99 is DEFRA and HETAS approved to ensure ultimate safety and efficiency.

    Are There Any Signs Of A Carbon Monoxide Leak?

    Although you can’t smell, taste or see CO gas any of the following could be warning signs of a CO gas leak:

    • Flames on a gas appliance will be a lazy yellow or orange colour, rather than a crisp blue.
    • There will be a dark staining that is black, brown or scorched on or around your appliances.
    • Pilot lights that frequently blow out.
    • Excessive condensation inside windows where there is a fuel-burning appliance.
    • A musty smell or signs of soot.

    If you have breathed in CO gas you are likely to experience headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness or loss of consciousness. It is important to seek medical attention urgently if you encounter any of these symptoms or think you may have been exposed to CO Gas.

    What Can I Do To Prevent Any Risk To Me and My Family?  

    There are many easy steps you can take to protect you and your family from CO poisoning.

    • Get your chimney swept regularly by a trained and registered sweep.
    • Use HETAS registered installers for fitting solid fuel appliances.
    • Fit or purchase a Carbon Monoxide alarm in your property-ideally located near any fuel-burning appliances.
    • Do not block vents. Ensure that your fire has adequate ventilation at all times.

    Ellesmere 6 AGA Stove at £1, 274.99 is HETAS and DEFRA approved for minimum combustion and maximum safety.

    At Fires Direct all of our appliances are HETAS approved and registered on the Gas Safe Register, so you can be assured your appliance is efficient and safe to use. If you want to find out more about carbon monoxide and how to stay safe visit Gas Safe Register for further help and advice.

  • Benefits of Smokeless Fuel

    Smokeless fuel has endless benefits for you, your fire and your bank balance! At Fires Direct we’ve put together some of the top benefits of using Smokeless Fuel so you can make the best decision for you and your fire and spend your £50 voucher for Coals2U, available when you buy any Fires Direct stove, wisely!

    Healthy Home:

    The most important reason for using Smokeless Fuel is the benefit it can have on you and your family. Medical research claims that solid fuel is less likely to cause hay fever, asthma and eczema, because the chimney removes polluted air and draws fresh air through the house. So, when combined with a well-ventilated home, smokeless fuels can be better for you and your family’s health!

    Broseley Serrano 7 SE Multi Fuel Stove £748.99

    Healthy Appliance:

    As well as benefiting your health, smokeless fuels are also better for your appliance! Coal or Petcoke Briquettes can burn too hot or clog your appliance with soot, both of which are damaging to your stove and could even invalidate your stove warranty. Smokeless fuels, on the other hand, are designed and approved for your stove and release heat in a more controlled way to avoid such damage.

    Not only this, but, smokeless fuels are known to produce a consistently higher heat output, and, can last up to 40% longer than house coal. Although coal may be cheaper to purchase, over time, smokeless fuel is more economical given that less fuel is needed to create your desired heat, and, you are less likely to pay out for damaged appliances, making it a value for money alternative to coal!

    The FireFox 12" Multi Fuel Stove £548.99

    Healthy Environment:

    Smokeless fuels are much kinder to the environment than traditional coal as they do not produce excess smoke when burnt, meaning they produce up to 80% less smoke and 40% less C02. This means that smokeless fuels comply with The Clean Air Acts of 1956 and 1968 which were introduced to prevent smog that was caused by the widespread burning of ordinary house coal, so, not only do smokeless fuels reduce your coal budget, they can also help to reduce your carbon footprint too!

    Tiger Clean Burn Multi Fuel DEFRA Approved Stove £411.99

    Smokeless fuels are made to the highest standards, and, unlike coal, can be used in a wide range of closed appliances, such as, multi-fuel stoves, room heaters and cookers, and open fires for a more efficient and healthy fire for you, your appliance, budget and environment! So, with a £50 fuel voucher available for Coals2U when you buy any stove from Fires Direct, now is the perfect time to stock up on smokeless fuel ready for the winter months!
