Warm home... Warm heart
For almost half a century we have been bombarded
by millions of pounds’ worth of advertising, attempting to
convince us that the heart of a home is a night storage heater,
or a tin radiator.
The shortcomings of these heat sources are
evident when we see laughable attempts to make an electric fire
flicker like a flame. The gas industry has built thousands of gas
fires, not designed to heat efficiently, but rather to burn at low
efficiency, to emulate the lazy yellow flames of a log fire.
