If the idea of having a chimney at home does not appeal to you, you can still enjoy the benefits of a stylish, practical addition to your living space with a bio-ethanol fire. Produced from sugar beet and other cereal crops, bio-ethanol is a carbon-neutral form of energy and is ideal for eco-conscious homeowners.
Bio-ethanol fireplaces do not require a chimney as their products of combustion are simply carbon dioxide and water vapour – the same that we breath in and out on a daily basis.
From simply cylindrical containers to advanced computer-controlled systems that give you greater control over flame height and the overall safety of your fires, bio-ethanol fireplaces are a state-of-the-art addition to any family home. Outdoor versions are also available for use on patios and gardens.

Gas Fires and Stoves
For those with a busier lifestyle, a gas stove may prove to be an ideal alternative to a wood burner. With styles to suit all tastes, our gas fires and stoves are available for most types of property, with or without an existing chimney.
Our full range of gas fires and stoves offer properties across Suffolk and Essex instant heat, with the potential to install a design that mimics a classic wood burner. Often with reduced running costs and minimal maintenance it’s the ideal solution for time-poor homeowners.
Have you been told a gas fire or stove is out of the question for your property? Don’t panic. For homes not connected to a mains gas supply, it is entirely possible for some of our contemporary gas stoves to be converted to operate on LPG instead. At RFC Services, we’ll do everything we can to help you achieve your dream gas fireplace.

There’s nothing quite like the sound and look of a wood burning stove. It’s a wonderful centrepiece for any living space and is hugely effective at making living rooms feel more homely and rustic.
With over 20 years of experience in the fireplace industry, we’ve developed trusted relationships with leading manufacturers of traditional and contemporary wood burners that deliver the quality of workmanship that we and our customers demand.
Wood burning stoves are eco-friendly, minimising your property’s carbon footprint. We offer wood burners to suit all installation options, from those installed within an existing fireplace recess, inset into an existing fireplace or freestanding, or even installed with a new twin-wall chimney system. Discover our latest designs from leading brands such as Hunter, Pevex, ACR, Woodwarm, and many more.

We offer a huge choice of classic and contemporary electric fireplaces from the leading manufacturers to suit all budgets and installation requirements. From Dimplex, Stovax and Gazco to Evonics, Broseley and Ekofires, these brands have helped electric fires come a long way in recent years with new features and techniques to produce highly effective ‘flames’.
Our electric fires are designed to be inset for standard fireplace openings, wall-mounted or free-standing against a flat wall. Meanwhile our electric stoves are capable of operating free-standing, fitted within a prepared opening or inset into a marble back panel or similar.
Almost all the electric fires and stoves we sell and install can produce up to 2Kw of heat to help regulate living room temperatures. Our state-of-the-art solutions also offer Bluetooth-enabled control systems to monitor room temperatures, suitable for most homes, offices and hotels.
