With the seasons turning, it is the ideal time to invest in an indoor fireplace for your home. Home Fires is your supplier of such fireplaces in South Africa, with a wide selection of built-in and freestanding models to choose from. Now, you can regulate the temperatures in your home without having to worry about constant loadshedding and power cuts, as our fireplaces run on gas or wood. Moreover, our range of fireplaces have unique and intriguing designs, adding aesthetic value to the room and sparking conversation.
Our range of slow combustion woodburning fireplaces are suited to those who love the warm and inviting aura of a woodburning fire. These models are insulated to ensure that the smoke that is generated from the fire does not escape into the room itself, but rather ventilated through the roof or side wall of the room. They also feature air intakes to regulate airflow in the closed system, ensuring that the fire does not suffocate and can continue burning over an extended period.
If you prefer a modernistic fireplace that has an open face, our selection of gas fireplaces is an ideal option for you. These fireplaces do not generate nearly as much smoke in comparison to their woodburning counterparts, meaning that they do not need similar levels of insulation and ventilation to safely operate in your home. You will also have a choice of gas grates when buying one of the models – including the standard white pebbles, coal grates, or Real-Fyre gas logs that imitate wooden logs.
Built-in vs Freestanding Fireplaces
If your home has a dedicated side wall cavity that fits a fireplace or braai, a built-in model is ideally suited to be installed in this area. Such a cavity will commonly have a chimney as well, allowing the generated smoke to safely ventilate through the roof. If your home does not have a chimney and a wall cavity, a freestanding model can serve as a more feasible option. These fireplaces are ideally installed next to a side wall or in the corner of a room and can also serve as a centrepiece in a large room.
