With so many benefits to recommend them, and with ever greater energy efficiency, it is little surprise that more and more people are choosing to install a fireplace or stove in their homes. So far this year, Manor House Fireplaces has been able to help many people to find the perfect heating solution for their living rooms and other areas. While all of the stoves have attracted interest, there are many modern fireplaces to buy which are on trend in 2013. Here’s a quick guide to a few aspects of the Manor House Fireplace range that are currently very appealing to our customers.

Log burners

Thanks in part to their attractive design and contemporary appeal, wood burning stoves like the Contura 810 and the Riva Studio 1FS, are an increasingly popular choice with customers looking for a modern log burner with ecological credentials. The great thing about log burners is that they are carbon neutral; any carbon dioxide they emit is offset by the oxygen produced when the tree was growing.

Cast iron fireplaces

Many of the cast iron fireplaces in the Manor House range are inspired by period originals, so customers can benefit from the attractiveness that an Art Nouveau or Arts & Crafts-inspired fireplace such as the Victorian Tiled Convector can provide. There is also the popular EcoCast, which is available in convection open, glass and balanced flue versions.

Hole in the Wall Gas Fires
