As the nights draw in, nothing can make your home more cosy than a fire or wood-burning stove. Deco Heat’s spacious store showcases their fuel-efficient fires and stoves, as well as offering design and fitting services
Deco Heat has been established for 20 years and specialises in wood burning stoves, multi fuel stoves, and gas and electric fires.
Manager of the Tongwynlais shop, Beth Llewellyn explains:
“The fireplace is the focal point of a room, whether that be a lounge or a kitchen, and it instantly makes the room more cosy.”
“A lot of people think they need a chimney to have a gorgeous fire or stove, but we have a motto here at Deco Heat which is ‘No chimney, no problem!’”
Deco Heat can get around this problem by installing a flue system within or outside the house. Alternatively, customers can choose from their vast selection of gas or electric fires and stoves, which don’t require a chimney.
“We have so many different choices of stoves and fires so customers are sure to find something that will suit their needs.” Furthermore, while the company has been long established in Tongwynlais, it also operates from the Pumping Station in Penarth Road and from the old Brecon Garden Centre in Brecon Town.
Deco Heat started almost by accident 20 years ago, when during his travels, the company’s owner came across a few multi fuel stoves in a reclamation yard in Antwerp. He brought them back to Wales in the van and fitted one into a house that he was developing, and the remaining stoves were advertised for sale. He had so many phonecalls he could have sold them 10 times over, so decided to go back for more. Having a background in the building and roofing trades, he was able to offer the full installation package to his customers. This resulted in recommendations from happy customers which built a solid reputation and so Deco Heat was born.
Deco Heat became the first and only stockists for a Caerphilly based manufacturer, Chilli Penguin stoves. The companies soon joined forces and have since grown into one of the UKs leading stove manufacturers. The Chilli Penguin stove is now available across the UK from selected stove shops. Deco Heat’s three showrooms have these fantastic Welsh-made stoves on live display along with most other UK leading brands.
The Chilli Penguin stove is the most efficient multi fuel stove manufactured in the UK. All models are available with an optional top oven and have a sleek, contemporary design. But what makes them extra special is that they continue to be hand built here in Wales today.
Despite the success story, Deco Heat continues to pride itself on its friendly and relaxed approach to customers. There is no pressure selling and the team, with their knowledge and expertise, strive to make each and every one of their customers happy.
“With each branch independently managed, we continue to be a small, hands-on company. All of our fitters work for us, some of our fitters have been with us for 15 years and we don’t use subcontractors.
“We all play a part in making our customers happy and this is how we get constant recommendations.” Beth believes this is what makes Deco Heat so successful.
Perhaps it is fair to say that customers will feel the warmth as soon as they step through the showroom door.
