When you choose one of our beautiful fireplaces available for sale, you can look forward to a host of valuable benefits. Some of the main ones you can look forward to when you buy fireplaces from Hydrofire include:

Stunning Design

One of the many benefits you can look forward to with our fireplaces is stunning design. If you want to add elegance, style, and a modern touch to your room, these fireplaces provide you with the perfect solution.


Data shows that open fires can be extremely inefficient, and this can end up costing you more in terms of money and comfort levels. However a closed combustion, also known as double combustion fireplace, is a fireplace that is designed to burn wood more efficiently by introducing a secondary air supply that ignites and burns any unburned gases and matter produced during the initial combustion process.

These double combustion fireplaces result in significantly reduced emissions and higher heat output, making them an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective option for homeowners looking to heat their homes. With closed-combustion fireplaces, you can expect 75-85 percent efficiency compared to just 25-30 percent with open fires.

Range of Design Options

When you buy a fireplace from Hydrofire, you can choose from a variety of options. This includes built-in fireplaces, double-sided fireplaces, freestanding fireplaces, side glass fireplaces, wall-mounted fireplaces, and water-based fireplaces. This means that you will have no problem finding the perfect one for your needs.

Ease of Maintenance

Another thing to keep in mind is that these fireplaces are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. There are features that make it easy to clean and look after the fireplace, and the design means that soot and smoke are kept away from the glass.

Increased Safety

Another additional benefit of these fireplaces is increased safety. You do not have to worry about the dangers that come with having an open fire, which can prove a worry if you have younger children or pets. The fireplaces also adhere to CE certification rules for your safety, protection, and peace of mind.

Tips for Choosing Your Brand-New Fireplace

In order to find the perfect closed combustion fireplace for sale for your home, there are some key points you need to take into consideration. This will make it easier for you to select the ideal fireplace to complement. Some of the main considerations include:

Your Budget

One of the things you have to consider when it comes to choosing the ideal closed combustion or wood burning fireplace for your home is your budget. Make sure you do some calculations beforehand so you know exactly what you can afford to spend. You can then focus on fireplaces that fall within your price range. Please keep in mind that the complete fireplace cost is made up of three components – Fireplace cost; flues cost; installation cost. The sum of these 3 costs will give you the overall end cost.

The Size of Your Room

It is important to assess the size of your room for a couple of reasons. First, if you have a small room, you may want to consider a wall-mounted or built-in fireplace that will take up less floor space. However, if you have a larger room, you can enjoy more flexibility with regard to the fireplace you choose.

In addition, you need to determine what KW power output is required by your fireplace, and what sort of heat output you need to heat your room based on the size.

To help you with this, you can use this convenient fireplace output calculator.

Existing Décor

You should also take your existing décor into consideration when making your choice. By doing this, you can ensure you find a fireplace that really complements your décor and gives your room the perfect finishing touch.

Fireplace Maintenance & Care

Taking care of your closed-combustion fireplace and maintaining it properly is important for aesthetic reasons, to promote safety and efficiency, and to keep it functioning as it should. Fortunately, all our fireplaces are designed to be easy to clean and maintain.

  1. It is important to ensure you use the right dry wood in order to keep your wood-burning fireplace clean and functioning efficiently. It is also important to ensure you are running the fireplace properly, as this will reduce build-up and make cleaning and maintenance much easier.
  2. Remove the ash from your fireplace regularly – particularly if it is building up to the point where your fireplace can’t draw air properlyy. Our fireplaces make this process easy – simply push the ash into the ashtray and dispose.
  3. During summer, make sure your fireplace has adequate ventilation. Keep its vents open and its door slightly ajar. You can also lubricate the interior with Q20 too.
  4. To clean the glass components of your fireplace, talk to our sales team – we import a specialised glass cleaner perfect for our fireplaces.
  5. Finally, you can always turn to Hydrofire to get your fireplace professionally serviced and inspected in the off season.
