When you think of a cooker, you probably don’t immediately think that it might require a flue, while this is true for conventional gas or electric cooking only cookers, central heating gas or oil cookers will require a means of removing the waste gases created by the boiler. The benefit of a balanced flue compared against a conventional flue is that an existing chimney is not required, allowing for greater flexibility when planning your kitchen.
Balanced flues are a marvel of engineering, simultaneously venting smoke and gas whilst also drawing oxygen in from outside down into the combustion chamber. This is achieved via a twin flue system, the interior compartment for smoke and the outer for oxygenation. These cookers are naturally room sealed, drawing combustion air in from outside through the same pipe that removes the waste gases. This helps to increase efficiency by cutting down on draughts. By simply venting directly to an outside wall, balanced flue cookers offer a sensible option for those looking versatility and efficiency.
When you think of a cooker, you probably don’t immediately think that it might require a flue, and for the most part with a more conventional gas or electric cooking only style cooker you're correct. However if you have a central heating gas or oil cooker then you will require a means of removing the waste gasses created by the boiler. The benefit of a balanced flue compared against a conventional flue is that an existing chimney is not required, allowing for greater flexibility when planning your kitchen.
