Merry Christmas from The Sussex Fireplace Company

Wow! what a year it has been for the Sussex Fireplace Company.

The final woodburning stove installations of 2018 are just been finished up this week and we close for business on Friday 21st at 4pm.

I’d like to thank all those customers who we worked with over the last year. The past 12 months have seen some beautiful stove installs by our hard-working band of  HETAS registered installers. We have worked all over the southeast and I would like to give special thanks to the people of Worthing, Chichester and Brighton & Hove for their support and custom. This year brought us to far-flung places like Cheltenham, Bournemouth and London. We were delighted to get out on the road and bring our expertise on the not so well trodden road.

This year has been all about looking at our business, the services we provide and how we can expand our capabilities to offer customers even more!! As a result, the Sussex Fireplace Company now have a wide range of tradesmen available to complete any job, whether that be gas works, building or plastering we offer it all.

We have also arranged a new free delivery service to all of the South East and London. look out over the coming months for special delivery only offers at knockdown prices.

January will bring huge savings on a wide variety of our stoves and fireplaces so keep an eye out if you want the cold winter months to be that little warmer in the new year.

Lastly, the Sussex Fireplace Company wishes everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas and a wonderful new year.

 

 

Why our online stove company really works

Purchasing a wood burning stove or fireplace is one of those decisions that takes a little time. Here at The Sussex Fireplace Company, we understand this and we work with our customers in a very real and personal way to make sure that the decision-making process is as well informed and as straightforward as possible. Yes, we have an online presence but we don’t consider our company to be an online business. We are made up of very real, friendly and professional people who speak to you when you want to talk.

Here are the reasons you should get in contact

Commitment to premier quality installations and customer service:

Our team will arrange to come to your home and carry out a survey. This survey allows us to get to know your preferences and enables us to identify what wood burning stove or fireplace will work best for you. We then send a personalised report within 2 days with prices and the rest is up to you. We don’t do a hard sell. We hope that you see the benefits of our services and after our survey, you get in contact to arrange installation.

We have all the wood burning stoves that showrooms have: 

Please don’t believe the myth that online is inferior. The Sussex Fireplace Company has access to a huge variety of stoves and fireplaces. From DRU gas fires to Stovax, Morso, Jotul and more. Our business model simply allows us to pass savings achieved by efficient and lean working onto our customers.

We guarantee a prompt reply and a survey appointment: 

Our HETAS registered installers and surveyors are all from the Sussex area. We appreciate the personal touch and we value the feedback from our customers. We know that interminbale waiting times are unacceptable so we will work with you to fit your time frame. If you need the installation done before a certain time we will do everything in our power to hit that mark.

Safety:

 Safety is our TOP priority here at The Sussex Fireplace Company. All our registered HETAS engineers are experienced and understand that a wood burning stove not only needs to look good and heat your room but it also needs to be safe so you and your family are protected.

The Do’s and Don’ts of looking after your Wood Burning Stove

Don’t wait until the snow starts to fall

Many of us forget about our wood burning stoves in the warm summer months. It’s understandable since we love to spend as much time in the great outdoors as possible. However, the warmer months are the perfect time to make sure your stove is ready for the dark cold nights of autumn and winter. In addition, stove installation companies can help their customers out more quickly without the long waiting times of the colder months.

Do clean your wood burning stove regularly

A working stove should be kept clear of ash and debris. Not only does regular cleaning maintain the stove’s charming and attractive appearance it also serves as a fire preventative measure. Ash and soot can pose a fire hazard so make sure you and your family are safe by cleaning out the ash pan regularly.

Do get your chimney swept regularly

You should always call in a chimney sweep at least once a year (or more regularly if you think it is needed)  to make sure that your chimney is clear of blockages and free of soot that again could cause a fire hazard. Chimney sweeps will look at the structural integrity of the chimney and give you the peace of mind that everything is in good working order.

Do have a carbon monoxide alarm fitted

Carbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas, which is produced by your wood burning stove. Safely fitted stoves make sure that the gas escapes into the atmosphere. To make sure that you and your family are totally safe, you must have a carbon monoxide detector fitted in your home and it must be checked regularly. If there is a serious problem the carbon monoxide detector will alert you.

Don’t burn unseasoned wet logs or wood

Only burn wood with a moisture content below 20%, preferably wood that has been seasoned for over one year. This lower moisture content wood prevents against tar deposits building up in the flue resulting in an unsafe system that can put your health at risk. Materials like plastics etc produce noxious fumes which will again affect your health and block your flue.
