Gas Savings and Bill Reduction

Here are the true results of changing the gas fire in my home to a Blade HE fireplace. My home is an average 2 bedroom semi-detached house built in the 1950’s. The house has double glazing and has a Class 1 chimney as the house had coal fires when it was built. I have keep an accurate records of my gas usage and below are the true results from my meter readings over the peak winter months. This is the total gas usage for the home – cooker, central heating and gas fire. The affect of fitting the high efficiency gas fire has had an overall affect in reducing the cost of using the central heating as heat has stayed within the house. Please take into account that the winter 2013 has also been very severe. Even taking into account other factors it still shows how much you can benefit from using a high quality gas fire and dispel all these myths that gas is expensive. The fireplace I have fitted is a BLADE and this was tested to the latest 2009 CE standard for efficiency and has a rating of 85%. This is considerably higher than fires tested to the old 2001 standard.
