The Bronpi range of woodburning stoves

Bronpi stoves have become popular in recent years as so many of their models are well suited to the British market. Firepower have now been asked if they would take over the UK marketing of Bronpi and have been very pleased to accept. The classic stove that Bronpi is known for is the Huelva, the magnificant four sided freestanding model that is a ‘must have’ for customers wanting a focal point in a large open plan design, and today it is even available in a ceiling hung version. The backbone of  Bronpi’s range for this market, however, are the beautifully designed traditional cast iron stoves with large viewing windows and generous outputs like the Derby, the Preston and the extraordinary three windowed Bury. Their clean-lined steel models such as the Sena Plus and Gijon are perfect examples of modern-style box stoves and Bronpi’s highly contemporary Bombay range, with their uniquely square vertical design with one, two, or three windows, are stunning in a modern setting. Equally up to date and elegant are the Cairo range of inserts, going from a 70 cm width to over a metre wide and with single and double sided options. As the energy price-rises bit last winter there was a big increase in demand for stoves with an oven and hotplates and the Monza, Suiza and Tudela models started flying off the shelves. The other big want was for Ecodesign boiler stoves and Bronpi’s 80E Vision insert boiler hit the spot with its 22.5kW to water and 4.5kW to the room.  To meet the increasing demand for Bronpi stoves Firepower are now taking on more dealers and increasing the opportunities for showroom displays so you are welcome to contact Martin on 01803 712721 or martin@firepower.co.uk to see if you would be eligible.

Chimney Fire Safety Week. “Speak to a Sweep!” 4th to 11th September 2023

The Fire Kills campaign will be promoting relevant messages throughout Chimney Fire Safety Week from 4 to 10 September.  Given the cost-of-living rise, people may explore using alternative methods to heat their homes, which might impact on use of chimneys.  Ensuring these are safe and ready for use is important, so the primary message of the Week will be to encourage people to have their chimneys swept in preparation for use over winter. Awareness and Action  Ultimately the campaign strives to raise awareness of chimney fires and encourage consumers to act. The campaign focuses on the importance of chimney sweeping and appliance maintenance, the use of quality fuels and tips to get the most efficiency from a stove.   Having a chimney swept not only reduces the fire risk, but also enables more efficient combustion saving you money by reducing the amount of fuel used and reduces emissions helping the environment and the air we breathe. The sweep will offer bespoke advice the householder on the use of their appliance, the correct use of fuels to gain maximum heat and warmth from their appliance. Partnership working with the Federation of British Chimney Sweeps The Federation of British Chimney (FBCS) and its association members is committed to providing a unified voice and single point of contact for the chimney sweep trade. Its member association cover more than 80% of registered chimney sweeps within England, Scotland and Wales and works in partnership with the major stakeholders within industry to raise standards through formal qualification (NVQ) and promote the essential services of the chimney sweep. The “Speak to a Sweep!” campaign has been specifically developed to deliver public information campaigns such as Chimney Fire Safety Week through partnership working with other industry stakeholders such as ClearSkies, Stove Industry Alliance, British Flue and Chimney Manufacturers and the Sweep Associations. The FBCS association members are sweeping, servicing, and maintaining flues and appliances in 10,000 homes each working day helping to keep the householder safe and warm.
