Flueless gas fires work using Pure Heat catalytic technology and therefore all of the heat generated by these fires enters your room. Subsequently, neither a chimney nor flue is required.
Flueless gas fires not only bring you the benefit of reduced gas bills, but also the added convenience that they can be either installed into an existing fireplace surround or simply hung on the wall using just four screws. With the wall mounted option, no building work is required and the fire can be installed in almost any room.*
The catalytic technology cleans the hot air leaving the combustion chamber, converting Carbon Monoxide into harmless Carbon Dioxide. It works so effectively that it can also assist in neutralising unwanted airborne particles and allergens present in the home, helping to create a cleaner and friendlier environment. All flueless gas fires are protected under patent GB2275331B.
Fact: A flueless gas fire can SAVE you up to 70% off your gas heating bill
Why Flueless Fires are 100% efficient
Like other high efficiency gas fires, flueless fires convert 100% of the gas to heat unlike open coal effect fires which convert as little as 10%. Typically running costs for a 2.0kW input/output flueless gas fire is approx. 14.4p per hour on “High”.
A 6.8kW conventional gas fire with comparable 2.0kW output can cost as much as 48.9p per hour on a high setting. By replacing your standard gas fire with a 100% efficient flueless gas fire, it is possible to save up to 70% off your future gas bills.
*The fire must be installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Flueless fires are not permitted in the bathroom.
- A minimum of 100 cm² purpose provided ventilation MUST be provided for this appliance. This may be achieved either with one vent 100 cm² at a high or low position in the room, or split ventilation i.e. 50cm² be installed at high level and 50cm² be installed at low level within the room. An openable window or equivalent is also required.
- Any ventilation fitted must comply with local Codes and/or Regulations. Ventilation fitted under, or within immediate vicinity of the appliance must not be used as it may adversely effect performance of the combustion monitoring system (ODS).
- The appliance shall not be installed within one metre of any existing air vent, and any new air vent shall not be installed within one metre of the appliance. WARNING: Ventilation openings must never be blocked or restricted in any way.
- Internal vents in an internal wall, other than appliances compartment wall, must be sited no more than 450mm above the floor level in order to reduce the spread of smoke in the event of fire.
- Air vents should not be sited where likely to become blocked or flooded, or where contaminated air may be present at any time. Location should be such that air currents do not normally pass through normally occupied areas.
- The air vent used to ventilate the OLD FLUE must not be sited within 500mm of this appliance.
- To reduce the possibility of draughts, road noise or insects entering the room via the air vent, we recommend the use an air vent of the type that feature internal baffles.
- The requirements of any other gas, oil or solid fuel appliances operating in the same room or space must be taken into consideration when assessing ventilation.
- Any ventilation fitted must comply with BS5871 Pt 4 and BS5440 Pt 2:2000 for draught reducing vents. For Republic of Ireland refer to the current edition of IS813 and any relevant rules in force.
