A Freestanding Stove by Heta with soapstone cladding to release heat slowly

Looking into a new fireplace project and wondering where to start? We can help!

Ambience: Fires & Stoves are proud to be stockists of 'The Collection by Michael Miller'. 

Our expertise in high efficiency gas fires has been recognised by leading manufacturer BFM and as such we have been chosen to be one of a handful of showrooms in the south of england to be stockists of this new range of products. We have many of their models on live display in our showroom and our trained staff can assist in taking you from concept to installation.

A common class 1 brick chimney stack

The origin of the humble chimney, designed to carry smoke out of the dwelling, remains unclear. There was initially little understanding of the physics of chimney draught, so many early domestic fires were simple open hearths where smoke billowed around inside the room before escaping through a hole in the roof.

At 'Ambience: Fires & Stoves' we believe in after sales service. We want to be there for you to help in keeping that fireplace in top condition! As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping your fireplace working like new we're offering service plans for all of our products, whether its solid fuel or gas!

What output do you need?

We often get asked about stove sizing. Whilst it contributes to the aesthetic of the stove, the size will largely be determined by what output is appropriate for you. HETAS installers currently use the following guide to help customers select the appropriate heat output.

At 'Ambience' we want you to have the complete experience. This starts with your first visit to our showroom based just off the Oxford ring road, on Pony Road Trading Estate. We have our own free customer parking and ramped access into and around our shop. Right away you'll be impressed with the range of products we show. We want you to feel free to browse our displays in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.

There are no hard and fast rules as to how far we will go to install our fireplaces but as a general guide most of our customers come to us from inside Oxfordshire itself. We want to be able to offer the highest levels of service to our customers and part of our commitment is that we offer free of charge, no obligation visits to ensure the products you have chosen will be viable for your home. If we feel that we can offer this level of service to you then distance is no object! We have many customers find us from Oxford, Abingdon, Banbury, Aylesbury, Bicester, Thame, Kidlington, Buckingham and beyond. Get in touch with us to find out how we can help.
