Picture Perfect Radiator – Valor Hydroflame

 Picture Perfect Radiator - Valor Hydroflame

Hydroflame™ is the new word in designer radiators – the best of two worlds with all the benefits of a radiator and an electric inset fire, combined to create a cost effective, highly efficient real fire effect feature.

It used to be said that there was nothing like a real fire – there is now. The vast majority of modern homes have a central heating system, which uses panel radiators, but although these provide efficient heat emission, most fail to satisfy the homeowner’s desire for a feature point in main living rooms.

The Hydroflame can do both; with a standard electric inset fire and a fan convector combined; it incorporates Valor Dimension cutting edge technology, to create a ‘real fire effect’.

Chesney’s Tips For A Long Lasting Warming Blaze

Chesney’s  Tips For A Long Lasting Warming Blaze

Paul Chesney fireplace and wood burning stove expert and Managing Director of Chesney’s Fireplaces has provided a step by step account, of how to build a long lasting log or coal fire. Stage 1 – Place several fire-lighters on the base of the grate. An alternative to the traditional petroleum lighters and much more environmentally friendly, are natural firelighters made from compacted wood shavings dipped in untreated wax. Stage 2 – Twist and tie several separate sheets of newspaper and place these over the lighters. Step 3 – Arrange a layer of small pieces of dry kindling wood over the newspaper. Step 4 – Finish the fire with a layer of coal or several logs on top of the kindling. Step 5 – Light the paper and lighters around the outer edges of the base of the fire.

Depending on how strongly the chimney is drawing, the fire once established will have be stoked with further fuel to maintain a consistent heat.

A coal fire will generally need much less tending than a log fire as the fuel is consumed more slowly.
