Even just the merest of glimpses at the current Stove market will show you the huge increase in demand for electric stoves. It was therefore no surprise to see more additions to the Broseley electric […]
ACR is one of the U.K.’s leading wood-burning and multifuel stove manufacturers with a range of eye-catching, durable and extremely popular products. The mishandling of the recent change in government regulations regarding wet wood and solid fuel has seen more people looking towards electric stoves. So, while the ACR Electric stove range has been in place for some time it is certainly receiving more interest day by day.
We will now take a look at the current products in the ACR electric stove range, what they have to offer and the huge leap in technology compared to traditional “three bar electric fires”.
Thanks to the mass media’s incompetent reporting of new government regulations regarding wet wood and solid fuel, there is a trend building towards electric stoves. The fact that wood-burning and multifuel stoves will not be banned has unfortunately been lost in the incorrect headline grabbing titles published by many media outlets. So, this brings us onto the subject of electric stoves which have for many years been hidden away in the shadow of wood-burning/multifuel options.
It is safe to say that electric stoves have come a long way in a short time and many consumers are now looking towards this area of the market as a viable alternative. So, what can you expect from a modern day electric stove?
The best stove companies on the ones that are able to spot trends very quickly and introduce new products at a relatively early stage. So, when the Arada Holborn Gas Medium Stove was released it is fair to say that Arada were well aware of the changing trends and the growing popularity of gas stoves. The next challenge was to create a machine which effectively mimicked a wood burner/multifuel stove, giving the same look and feel, but was fuelled by gas. Tricky!
Step forward the Arada Holborn Gas Medium Stove
Even the merest of glimpses at the Arada Holborn Gas Medium Stove confirms this is a traditional machine with what is certainly an enlarged viewing area. We know that wood-burning/multifuel stove enthusiasts are mesmerised by extended viewing areas. So why should this be any different for a gas stove?
Those who follow the wood-burning and multifuel stove market will be well aware of Yeoman Stoves. This is a company which has a history going back more than 30 years and is now recognised as one of the U.K.’s leading stove manufacturers. While historically the focus has been on wood-burning and multifuel stoves, the company has recently updated the range of Yeoman Gas Stoves. We know from recent market research that gas stoves are more popular today than they ever have been. The ability to mix and match the award-winning designs of Yeoman multifuel and wood-burning stoves with a gas fuel has taken their gas stove range to a different level.
When we mention gas stoves many people immediately see the gas stoves of 20 years ago which do not represent the current marketplace. Technology has moved on, the designs of yesteryear have disappeared and the industry is certainly moving into a new era. So, if you’re one of those who have dismissed gas stoves in the past then we recommend giving yourself just a few minutes to check out the new era which is very different to the old one.
While Hunter Stoves may not be as large as some competitors, make no mistake about it, this is a quality UK-based stove manufacturer. If you check out the company’s website you will see an array of quality stoves which are durable, extremely efficient and while maintaining the “old world look” accommodate the latest in combustion technology. There is one common denominator when it comes to successful stove manufacturers, an ability to read market trends and satisfy the appetite of ever hungry consumers. Therefore, as the popularity of gas stoves continues to grow it will be no surprise to learn that Hunter has now released an array of exceptional stoves.
We live in a world where the environment continues to take centre stage and emissions are tracked extremely closely. While not all consumers have access to gas fuel, those that do are now considering gas stoves as well as their wood-burning/multifuel counterparts. It is also worth noting that the design and look of a stove is extremely important to consumers these days. So, what better way to hit the ground running than to replicate the award-winning designs of a company’s wood-burning/multifuel stoves?
It is very interesting to see the new range of ACR Electric stoves as the company continues to build on its very impressive product range. Even though it is common knowledge that electric stoves are not for everybody, we know that demand is growing as their popularity increases. Will they ever replace wood-burning/multifuel stoves? No, but they can be a very useful alternative for those with limited space who are looking for a decorative well-designed heating system.
Old style electric stoves still muddy the water
Despite the millions of pounds invested in electric stoves by an array of UK based companies, for many people the image of old three bar electric fires are ingrained in their mind. The reality is that the modern day electric stove is extremely stylish, very efficient and until you step up close it can be difficult to tell the difference compared to a wood, multifuel and gas stove. We know that electric stoves are not for everybody but the ongoing market trends indicate there is growing demand. If there is growing demand then companies such as ACR will look to satisfy the appetite of consumers.
Over the last 20 years or so we have seen a significant increase in the number of wood-burning and multifuel stoves sold in the UK. This is a trend which is set to continue for some time to come and one which has also had a positive impact on the gas stove market. We now have well-known wood/multifuel stove companies such as ACR expanding their gas stove portfolio as demand continues to rise.
GAS STOVES and Common misconceptions
The gas stoves that we see today are very different to those of 20 years ago or even 10 years ago. When you consider the huge investment by companies such as ACR into their wood-burning/multifuel stoves it makes sense to replicate the design of these machines in their gas stove offerings. The reality is that it is highly unlikely that you would be able to tell the difference between a modern day wood-burning stove and its gas stove counterpart from a distance. While we appreciate that gas fuel is not available to all consumers this is a market which has come back to life like a phoenix rising from the (gas) flames.
