In the past, it was challenging to find fireplaces that were both efficient and aesthetically pleasing. However, with the advancement of technology and the world’s focus shifting to environmentally friendly endeavours, balanced flue gas fires were developed. Not only do they present an effective alternative to traditional fireplaces, but they’re also safe, convenient, economical, and healthier to have in your home or commercial building.
But, what is a balanced flue? It’s all good and well to mention the benefits of installing a balanced flue gas fireplace into your home, but without knowing what it is, you can’t make an informed purchasing decision. Balanced flue gas fires use outside air for combustion and then expel carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and other gasses through the flue system which leads to the exterior of your home. Another advantage to balanced flue fires is that they offer flexibility, so if the flue system needs to run around obstacles like windows, it can be diverted.
Why Install a Gas Heater with a Flue?
When it comes to installing a gas fireplace in your home or commercial property, some balanced flue gas fireplaces can be installed into existing chimneys with little building work required. Other than that, the requirements to have a gas heater flue installed are minimal.
We’ve touched on the benefits of installing balanced flue gas fires above, but it’s worth going into more detail to help you make a decision.
A few of the advantages of Balanced Flue Gas Heaters includes:
- Safety & Fuel Efficiency – Balanced flue gas heaters are perfect for homes with young children and pets. The fronted glass panel and mesh acts as a safety barrier and the twin pipes ensure that no gases invade your home. Because they make use of a closed combustion system and are made with modern fireplace engineering standards in mind, balanced flue gas fires are known to be much more fuel efficient than traditional fireplaces.
