Conventional flue cookers have a similar requirement to stoves in that they burn a fuel and create a waste gas that needs to be removed from the appliance. Conventional flue cookers need to be connected into either an existing chimney that runs throughout the home, or alternatively you can use a double insulated twinwall flue system and place the cooker in an extension or against an outside wall and run the flue system up or out.
One of the easiest ways to vent a fire is to utilise your home's existing chimney. Conventional flued cookers rely on draught and circulation from around the home. Despite being the more traditional method of cooking, conventional flued cookers come in a huge array of styles to suit your room's décor. Conventional cookers can be installed in a Class 1 brick or stone chimney. This chimney rises above the roofline and is the most traditional means of venting a fire's gases.
Another type of conventional flue is the Class 1 and 2 pre-fabricated flues, which are generally characterised by a metal flue cowl on the roof. Whilst looking somewhat more modern than a brick chimney, this flue vents gases in the same way, through the natural circulation of air in a home.
A Class 2 pre-cast flue are often identified by a metal flue cowl on the roof or a raised ridge terminal. These flues are generally thinner than other flues and are often found in modern homes. Generally, due to the slimmer profile, a fire to match is required.
Before you purchase your cooker you should know how to vent the gases. This will also help you to choose the right cooker 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 cooker is right for you visit our blog.
