Why is energy efficiency so important?
Although gas is a relatively clean fuel compared to other fuels, it is still important that we use it wisely when heating our homes.
As well as looking after our environment, we also need to ensure we choose high efficiency products to keep our energy costs under control. By using higher star rated products, you will save on your energy bills.
Take the time to compare the energy star rating of appliances. The more stars on the label, the more energy efficient the appliance. The energy label will tell you how efficient the appliance is, how much gas it will use in a typical year and the available heat output in kilowatts.
When selecting a fireplace that heats it is always pertinent to research the technical information available and in particular the star rating tag which includes the number of stars (efficiency) the mj/hr the fire uses and the kW output of the fire.The kW’s required vary from location to location and type of structure.
For example if the home is located in a cold climate as a pose to warm then more kW’s will be required.
