Ideal for those who want a fire but do not have an existing chimney, balanced flue fires give you the ability to enjoy the ambiance of a fire without the need for a chimney breast. These glass fronted fires are 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 fires offer a sensible option for those looking for the versatility.
Balanced flues are a marvel of engineering, simultaneously venting smoke and gas whilst also drawing oxygen in from outside down into the fire. This is achieved via a twin flue system, the interior compartment for smoke and the outer for oxygenation. These typically glass fronted fires are 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 fires offer a sensible option for those looking for the versatility that comes with bringing a cosy fire into their home.
Before you purchase your fire you should know how to vent the gases. This will also help you to choose the right fire for you and your home. It is also necessary to understand how it works, how to keep it safe and maintain it before installation. For more information on which type of flued fire is right for you visit our blog.
