There are numerous reasons as to why you should purchase your home electric heating system. An appliance such as an electric stove or fireplace can provide warmth for your house, and a simple installation choice, as such appliances, remove the need for a flue or chimney. Electric fireplaces are also a wise choice and a very viable alternative when you do not have solid fuel or gas available in your home.
All gas fires need a flow of air to function properly. They draw in draught air and/or air from the room to support combustion, and safely expel burnt excess gases into the atmosphere. Broadly speaking, there are two types of flue used in gas fires: Open Combustion and Closed Combustion.
Balanced flue gas fires draw air through a flue installed in an exterior-facing wall. The same flue is also used to expel spent gases from the fire. This means balanced flue fires are entirely sealed heating systems that can be fitted anywhere, with no need for a chimney. (All that’s required is an outside wall!) These fires are therefore extremely versatile, much more so than traditional gas fires.
