Unlike conventional gas and electric cookers, some cookers require a flue and that could leave you with a problem if you don’t have an existing chimney where you wished to place your new cooker. Power flue cookers allow you to remove the waste gasses that are created by burning the fuel straight out the back of the cooker and through the wall. They use a fan to pull the gases out, rather than relying on a conventional chimney to naturally draw the gases out.
We're big fans of powered flues (and puns). Powered flues draw the gases from the fire outside using a powerful electric fan, essentially these are conventional flues with a forced circulation system that means you don’t need a chimney, or need to flue your cooker in an unusual location. This is basically the same system as a cooker's extraction hood, but instead of the smells resulting from the cooking process it’s the combustion by products being vented from the cooker's interior.
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.
There are many power flued cookers to choose from, from some of the world's best designers, we recommend simply viewing the product list and seeing which cooker is most suitable to your interior, but if you're really stuck try using our comprehensive Cooker Finder tool to ease the search, simply input your requirements and let the program do the hard stuff.
