Turning a commercial building into a residential property is always an interesting project, but for the owners of this 1960s concrete block building, it was more rewarding than they ever imagined.
All of our Escea indoor gas fireplaces use a Direct Vent flue. The Direct Vent flue system allows our fireplaces to achieve up to 90 percent efficiency rating in comparison to an open-fronted fireplace which is around 45 percent efficient. Escea gas fires heat you, not the flue! Find out more by watching this video.
Struggling with design ideas for gas fireplace surrounds? We’ve put together our top 10 ideas for you.
Escea has taken smart, innovative gas heaters to the next level with the latest addition to our award-winning range. The Escea FS730 Gas Fireplace is our freestanding gas fireplace for those with not enough wall space for an inbuilt fireplace or for replacing your freestanding wood burner. A first for Escea, the FS730 is a response to the demand for a mess-free, efficient alternative to freestanding wood burners, while maintaining the ambience that only flame provides. Our team has worked hard to make a fireplace designed from the users’ perspective, with a cool-touch curved body, contemporary styling and large flame display.
Renovating an old house can be difficult if you’re trying to preserve its traditional character. However the owners of this 1950s weatherboard home broke from tradition when they expanded, and created a brave distinction between old and new.
1. Hide and seek with your windows.
Curtains and blinds can significantly reduce heat loss through your windows. To maximise the sunshine hours, open your curtains and blinds when the sun is shining during the day to capture the warmth, then close them in the evening to keep the heat in. The main reason why curtains and blinds are used within a household is to create a seal that will prevent the warm air from getting out and also stop colder air coming through. When warming your house with a gas fire, it is important to play hide and seek with your windows. Ultimately, your fire will heat your room more efficiently because the warm air will stay inside the room and you can keep your fireplace at a lower temperature.
At Escea, we are putting the design power in your hands.
We are excited to announce the release of our new web app “Design Your Fire”. With this design tool, you can create and compare a wide range of Escea fireplace ideas, mixing and matching the design features. This allows you to visualise each fire, so you can pick the perfect one to suit your home.
Design Your Fire is super easy to use. With the drop-down menus, you first select the fireplace model you want to view. Next, choose the style and colour of your fireplace surround (fascia). To finish your fireplace design, add a fuel bed.
