With two gas fires to work on this morning its been a hot day all round. The warm weather today made for hot business both inside the home and out in the garden.
We had a refurbishment to do first off in Tonbridge.
A cast iron basket fire approximately fifteen years old. This fire had not worked for three years, and the cast iron basket and back panel had become tarnished and rusty. The on/off control had seized, and the cosmetic, ceramic coals and fuel bed had perished and become worn. And so it was our job to strip the whole thing back and completely refurbish it.
It is a gratifying job to bring back to life a gas fire that remains a focal point of the room and a fundamental feature in the inglenook fireplace.
So as we went to work stripping back the metal work and then coating it with high-temperature stove paint, with the warm weather outside it proved to be challenging work. However its a job worth doing whatever the weather when the result provides us with a gas fire that looked like new.
We think you will appreciate the work involved with the before and after photos below.
Gazco Gas Fires
Then we went to a Gazco Linea Gas fire repair. The fire is a remote controlled Balanced flue contemporary gas fire with a high efficiency, heat output.
Fortunately, this was a relatively easy repair, and so a service was carried out after as the last service was just over a year ago and so it was due. Enabling the customer to get good value for their money in killing two birds with one stone, so to speak.
That was the morning over, and so two more happy customers and both can use their secondary back up source of heat when necessary.
