Saving Energy & Reducing Heating Bills

Energy efficiency is now an important factor when selecting a fire and we can help you choose the most suitable solution. Gas is still the cheapest fuel, 70% cheaper than electric, wood burning or bioethanol (per kw of heat). By choosing gas and one of our modern energy efficient gas appliances you can benefit from more heat and reduced utility bills. By using one of our modern flueless gas fires you could reduce your heating costs by up to 70%. View our high efficiency gas fires

The most efficient gas fireplace options are listed below. These fires have high energy efficiency ratings. The difference in choice is the installation style.


Our contemporary fireplace designs are available to both private and trade customers. Our client list includes the top hotel chains around the World and we have supplied fires to famous actors, movie directors, premiership footballers and even an F1 team owner. Our modern designer fireplaces have been installed in homes, hotels, bars and restaurants in the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.

Bespoke Fireplaces

We designed a 2500mm Wide Ribbon Fire for the reception of Henry Moore Court, Chelsea, London. This bespoke gas fireplace was designed and manufactured in the North East at our Newton Aycliffe factory. We are specialists in designing bespoke fireplaces. Visit our projects page to review some of our installations.

I recently purchased a fab fire from this company. Their sales team went out of their way to assist me with the design to match my room. Delivery was, fast and super efficient. I would highly recommend this company to all of my friends and family. Well done CVO

Perfect fire. After searching round for a new fire , we came across CVO FIRES , and decided to go down to the showroom and have a look round. We have a fairly large front room 33 ft x 12 ft so needed a substantial fire , but also a Flueless Model. We decided on the Angel 1110 + Black Steel Facia after speaking to the salesmen , who was very knowledgeable and listened to our needs. Now the beauty of this fire is that you position where you like because it is flueless. We decided to build a false chimney breast in the perfect part of the room to get the maximum benefit. All instructions and specifications were supplied and were fairly easy to follow. Once the fire was fitted and connected by a Gas Safe installer the look and performance was absolutely STUNNING. It has completely transformed our living room and we could not be happier. We would not hesitate to recommend this company. Sean Akhthar helped us through all aspects of buying the fire and was always available if we had any queries. Many thanks again for all your help.

Morning Andrew! I didn’t want to embarrass Sean by sending an email, accidentally, to a work colleague !! We just wanted to say, that, after travelling 400 miles to ‘investigate’ your fires. (Scottish highlands). We were really impressed with our reception on arrival, Sean even made us a much appreciated cuppa! (Thank him when you see him)! Sean was so informative! Whatever questions we ‘threw’ at him, he answered with knowledge and confidence, so much so we felt confident enough to ‘order’ our fire, there and then!! Sean was attentive at all times, boosting our confidence all the time, without any sales pressure at all! Well done Sean ! Just felt the need to tell you this! Cheers Andrew

Carole Taylor

Dear Michelle, We are more than pleased with our Moderno Widescreen flueless gas fire. We are finding it most efficient, warm, cozy, very attractive and fits in so well with the decor in our lounge. The service we have had from you and your colleagues at C V O is second to none. We are so glad that we went ahead with the order and would have no hesitation recommending your company both for the product and the good service we have had from you. Thank you so much.

Sylvia Randles

“MODERNO” Widescreen: Beautiful Natural Limestone Surround. Open fire, i.e. no glass – just naked flame! Gentle flickering linear flame. Looks great, especially in any contemporary/minimalist/modern setting. The ambient light and movement from the flame provide a great atmosphere to your room. Kicks out loads of heat, is cheap to run and very easy to install (no flue). Will get your room toasty in no time. Operated by one switch hidden behind the limestone.

TPH Norwich

Thanks Gavin – Shaun did a first class job – we love your fire.

Moyra Booth

Just a small note to express our complete satisfaction with your product, service and technical support. After visiting your showroom and being shown your collection by Michelle we opted for the Moderno flueless gas fire with black recess plate. Every question we had was answered in a clear and understandable way, nothing was too much trouble. The fire and surround are now fitted and look stunning. Everyone who visits asks where it come from. I will for sure recommend your company to them all. In this age it is both refreshing and a pleasure to do business with a business who cares ! Best Regards.

We had our CVO fire installed just before Christmas and I am writing to tell you how pleased we are with it. We did have a problem deciding how high to place the fire, but someone in your office told us to cut out a bit of card and hold it up. We did that and the result is that the fire is high on the wall and very much like a picture with a frame. This means that it is above the height of toddlers’ fingers, and also means that the fire bed is out of sight. When sitting down we can only see the dancing flame which is excellent effect. The fire is most practical, easy to light and gives off goof heat quickly, with some radiation but a great deal of welcome convection. Please pass my thanks to your staff for the production and consignment of the fire which has certainly exceeded our expectations. It was recommended to us by an interior designer we were using and we are glad that we took her advice. I guess if I was to pass on a suggestion it would be that you need to raise the profile of the brand and ensure that the concept of the CVO fires is more widely recognised. Yours Sincerely,

Alun Davies

“Hi Gavin, Just once again to thank you for all your help with the fireplace. It’s in and looks great!

Marcus Jones

“We have just taken delivery of a Moderno fire and had it installed last Thursday, just a note to say how delighted we are with our purchase, having been in the house for 16 years and not having a chimney has been a constant niggle of ours but after some major extension work we have managed to rearrange the lounge to fit a fire. I started my search around this time last year and found the CVO site which amazed me, I didn’t think a flue less and glassless fire existed. After many visits to your website and an actual trip to your showroom we decided on the Sandstone facia which looks fantastic in our lounge”.

Rob Booth

“Hi Rob, I absolutely wish to commend your own brilliant guidance during the process of purchase and also to commend Jackie and Wendy who subsequently gave customer care of excellence”

Danie Croft

“Dear All, This is to thank you for providing our home with a product that excides all expectations not only in performance but design and quality, to say that we are delighted would be an understatement especially when you consider that we purchased your ANGEL flueless gas fire direct over the internet with out even viewing it first, but we were persuaded by the excellent response to the various quires and concerns that we initially had. Kind regards.”

Alastair Thomas

“Michelle, we just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we love our Corona open flamed flueless gas fire. Its a beautiful looking piece of furniture, the wooden fire surround is of excellent quality, lots of favourable comments. It warms the room up nicely and everyone we’ve come across in your company from sales, accounts and delivery have been really helpful and a pleasure to deal with. All the best for 2009”

Paul Creasey

“We appointed CVO to supply the flueless gas fires for our flame wall back bar at our £2m Tup Tup Palace venue in Newcastle Upon Tyne . We were over the moon with the quality of the products and will certainly be using CVO again for our future projects”.

James Jukes, Pathfinder Ventures Ltd - TupTup Palace

“……….A fire feature near the entrance area was sought that would offer a bit of visual theater and create a ‘warm’ welcoming effect. Working closely with Spirit Fires a unique Bronze Fire Bowl was created and placed on a slab of marble with a Cone shaped stainless steel canopy with flue overhead. The fire feature looks stunning when operated and is greatly admired by Divine Food & Wine’s ever growing customers”

Ciaran O'Niell, The Forum, Waterford

“Thank you for your top class help”

S Mostashari

“Thanks for the fireplace and all your help. It is installed and more beautiful than the picture. Thanks!!”

Bill Gehbauer

“The CVO remote control Angel flueless gas fire is so convenient and makes operating the fire a much easier process for all my family. We have created a hi-tech bungalow to make appliances easier to use and the fire fits in perfectly with the design of our home.”

Jo Tarling

One of the best products I have found in 7 years of interior design! We’ve used the bio-ethanol stone fire bowl now for a few interiors and our clients love them
