Balanced Flue Gas Fires – Fireplaces & Heaters
Can be installed in homes that do not have a flue of chimney. They are installed onto an outside wall and take their air for combustion and expel their products of combustion through a horizontal flue consisting of two concentric metal tubes. These fires always have a glass front and are sometimes called ‘room sealed’. This type of fire is very efficient in operation and has lower running costs. Outset and inset models are available. Inset models can be recessed into the inner leaf of a cavity wall, or special fireplaces can be constructed (a ‘rebated’ surround) to accommodate the inset depth of the fire. Some newer balanced flue stoves and fires can now be fitted on internal walls using bends and longer pipe runs to reach the outside wall.
