Beat the cold this winter with these local businesses.  

North West Chimneys 

The Westmorland Gazette:

We tailor our services to each individual enquiry, whether it is to fit a customer supplied fire or for a complete end to end service where we will supply, fit and certificate the stove installation and also supply any other trades that are required. We try to be as flexible as possible in order to fit in with whatever needs you may have, whilst ensuring all installations comply with all regulations.

We recommend regular chimney sweeping (at least once a year) as it is beneficial to the efficiency of your stove/fire. Tar, soot and deposits in a chimney may reduce the draw. This will make the stove run poorly as it will become more difficult to light and burn less efficiently. Most importantly, keeping your chimney clear reduces the risk of chimney fires.

Our stove maintenance service includes cleaning the stove, sweeping the chimney and a safety check ensuring the stove is functioning safely and efficiently.

HECAS has a range of wood burning and Multifuel stoves available from leading manufactures like Logfire, Merlin and Dimplex.

Wood burning stoves can use wood logs, pellets or chips and make a perfect focal point for any room in the house and are particularly cosy on winter nights. Burning dry Hardwood seasoned logs will always give you the best result and will take longer to burn.

Solid fuel stoves can burn wood, smokeless fuel, coal and paper, these are ideal if you don’t always have access to a regular supply of wood, you then have the option to use coal or other materials.

Electric fires have come a long way over the last 20 years and are now available as traditional inset fires, stoves, wall hung and even as part of a suite. We also have gas fires available in store from Kohlangaz, Legend, Valor and Burley.

To see for yourself why not check out our showrooms in Morecambe or even online at where you can even request a brochure.
