This selection of conventional flued fires require either an existing chimney or a double insulated twinwall flue in order for them to work. Similar to stoves that burn a fuel and create a waste gas that needs to be removed from the appliance, conventional flue fires need to be connected into a chimney/flue that allows for safe gas removal. Conventional flued fires rely on draught and circulation from around the home and is a more traditional way of fluing a fire.
One of the easiest ways to vent a fire is to utilise your home's existing chimney. Conventional flued fires rely on draught and circulation from around the home. Although a traditional way of enjoying a fire, conventional flued fires come in a huge array of styles to suit your room's décor. Conventional fires 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 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.
