Choosing the right stove for your home Whether you’re seeking the authenticity of a wood-burning stove or multi-fuel model, or the convenience and ease of gas or electricity, choosing the right stove is one of the most important decisions you can make for your home. At Corcoran’s Furniture & Carpets, they have several different types of stoves to choose from - which can be confusing for the first-time stove buyer. Let’s take a quick look at the most popular ones: MULTI-FUEL STOVES: As well as providing an efficient heat source, multi-fuel stoves are easy to clean and offer the best flexibility, allowing you to burn a variety of fuels such as coal, wood, and smokeless fuel. Stove specialist Violetta of Corcoran’s Furniture and Carpets, points out the Cashel 5kw Heritage multi-fuel stove is excellent value and very hard-working. Right now you can pick up this efficient 5kw stove for just €299 in Corcoran’s Furniture & Carpets four day anniversary sale.

WOOD-BURNING STOVES: Woodburning stoves burn all types of wood. The heating efficiency of a wood burning stove is about 85 percent. Most of the heat is absorbed by the stove itself and radiated throughout the room. Wood-burning stoves also use less firewood than a fireplace because you can control the burn much more easily and effectively. They are a smart alternative for the homeowner seeking the traditional feel of an open fire, but with far greater efficiency. STOVES WITH BACK BOILERS: As an alternative central heating solution, you can opt for a stove with a back boiler. This combines a boiler function with the stove to provide space heating and domestic hot water, as well as spot heating. These products, known also as boiler stoves, can typically provide between 5 and 20kW of water heating as well as the equivalent in output to the room. Violetta mentions the Morgan 20B Boiler Stove as one of their best-selling back

MORGAN 20B BOILER STOVE boiler stoves, with over €300 off in their anniversary sale. GAS AND ELECTRIC STOVES: Gas and electric stoves are also a popular heating source and Corcoran’s Furniture & Carpets have an excellent selection in store. These stoves provide a flame or flame effect without the mess and storage

requirements of other fuels. For homes that lack a chimney or flue, electric stoves are an easy plug-in choice. Corcoran's Furniture & Carpets Cork Road, Killarney, V93 DTN8 Tel: 064 669 1112

Launch of new Bio Ethanol fires Boyles Stove Centre are very excited to be launching their new range of Bio Ethanol fires - Planika Fires - market leaders in this field and available in 60 countries worldwide. As the standard of house building improves, our range of fires has had to evolve to adapt. The Bio Ethanol fires are a great option for new builds or homes where there are limited options for flue systems, as no chimney is required. The installation is very simple, on the wall-mounted units only a bracket is needed, similar to those used for a flat screen TV. It burns alternative fuels which are 100 percent renewable, making it an eco-friendly fire. When burning the fuel, no smoke, soot or ashes are produced. As the flames are real, they produce a good amount of heat with at least 2-3kw being generated. We also offer an extensive range of carefully selected stoves; multi-fuel, wood-burning, electric and gas-burning, as well as fireplace surrounds. Our expert sales staff will carefully guide

you through the process and survey your home to make sure the most suitable options are installed. Boyles Stove Centre have their own specialist installers, HETAS or RGI trained, for installing their impressive range of stoves and fires.

Get your home ready for winter Now is the perfect time to prepare your home for winter.

they are airtight.

Below are our top tips to protect your premises over the coming months and ensure you and yours are comfortable, cosy and safe.

One of the most important things to do is to check your heating system to ensure everything is in order. Get your boiler serviced and bleed your radiators as they may have air trapped inside which can affect their efficiency. This will not only save energy but could reduce your electricity bill.


Once the leaves have fallen off the trees you may find that your roof and gutters are clogged with foliage and other debris – particularly after the recent storms. Cleaning your gutters will reduce the chances of them overflowing. Similarly, as the temperature reduces, the overflowed gutters may freeze over and cause further damage.


One of the best ways to make your home more energy efficient is ensuring that it is insulated correctly. If you have an attic this should be your first area to insulate, as there is a lot of heat loss through roofs. You should also check your windows and doors to make sure



As the fireplace was probably dormant for the past few months, it may be a good idea to have a chimney sweeper take a look at it, before you light the fire on a cold winter’s night. This will prevent any damage to your fireplace and possibly your home, should the chimney be dirty or clogged.


Ensure you have the adequate level of cover in place before it’s too late. Insurance companies have a range of home insurance policies in place.
