CAN ANY ELEC­TRIC STOVES PASS AS WOODBURNERS?

Homes & Gardens - - ADVICE -

I need sup­ple­men­tary heat­ing in my study and won­der if there are any elec­tric fires that look like woodburners? OM, Hex­ham, Northum­ber­land.

Elec­tric fires that can be plugged into any 13-amp socket are use­ful for ad­di­tional heat­ing and there are a num­ber of free­stand­ing ver­sions in a wood­burner style. Those men­tioned here rou­tinely give a heat out­put up to 2Kw and most come with a re­mote con­trol and safety ther­mal cut-out. A com­pact model is Malvern, £695, or for a more con­tem­po­rary take, the NEO 3F, £1,089, both by ACR, 0121 706 8266, acrheat­prod­ucts.com. The win­ning fea­ture is the ad­vanced flame tech­nol­ogy. It projects flames in the front, cen­tre and back of the fuel bed and has four flame set­tings – high, medium, low or glow­ing em­bers – com­ing ever closer to the look of a gen­uine wood­burner. Gazco, 01392 260900, gazco.com, is an­other provider, with its range in­clud­ing the Marl­bor­ough (above) in two sizes, from £749, with three flame lev­els, and the Vogue Midi with 13 fuel bed light­ing colours, £995. At Yeo­man, 01392 261900,

yeo­manstoves.co.uk, the CL5 is a neat model with three flame lev­els and re­mote con­trol, £965.
