Starting the installation process

If you're after more inspiration or information on fireplace installation options, hopefully the following will help.
Bioethanol fires are typically easy to install, as they are often freestanding or wall-mounted. No gas connections or chimneys are needed. Installation involves securing the unit and ensuring adequate ventilation.
Gas fires require professional installation due to the gas line connection and the potential for gas leaks. Proper ventilation (flue or chimney) is essential, plus a CO detector and regular maintenance.
Electric fires are the simplest fire type to install. They require access to an electrical outlet and can often be freestanding or wall-mounted. No chimneys or gas connections are needed.
Installing a wood-burning stove is more complex. It involves fitting a flue or chimney to ensure proper ventilation and safe exhaust. Installation should meet building regulations and requires professional expertise.
Regardless of which type of fire you choose, you have the option of a built-in fireplace, a wall-mounted fireplace or a freestanding fireplace. And if you have a particular project in mind that's a bit out of the ordinary, we can certainly help with that too.
Built-in fireplaces can be a real design statement, often requiring more advanced installation. The process varies depending ion the fire type and model. Typically – unless one already exists – it involves creating a wall with a custom cutout to fit the fireplace frame. A biofuel fire in a media wall for example may require no more finishing, although you may opt for a hearth and mantel depending on your chosen fire type.
Wall-mounted fireplaces are versatile and space-saving. They often include mounting brackets, and some models can be mounted from the ceiling. They can be installed on any wall capable of supporting their weight. When mounted on plasterboard walls, special plugs may be necessary. Wall-mounted fireplaces maintain a sleek, modern look and require minimal floor space.
Free-standing fireplaces are convenient and straightforward to install; and many come fully or partially assembled, ready for use within minutes. Every fire type has freestanding models, with a number of bioethanol freestanding fires offering superb versatility in terms of placement and efficiency. Freestanding fireplaces can provide a sensible portable heating solution.
If you have a special project in mind for your fireplace, Firefly would be very glad to assist. Working to your specific project's vision, we can help ensure the fireplace complements the space's character, whilst meeting safety protocols and local regulations. Installation demands precision, with consideration for ventilation and other construction issues. A successful installation transforms a special project into a warm, inviting haven.
