Balanced Flue Gas Fires
When the time comes to purchase a gas fire for your home, it's best not to take any chances. After all, every month you can't refurbish your living room. Choosing the right gas fire for your home involves a systematic approach that relies on many factors
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.
