Fires and heaters

Not every gas fire is suitable for every home. When planning the installation of a gas fire it is essential what structural work if any may be necessary to provide a suitable aperture or opening for connection to a build-in flue/chimney or hearth.

There are different types of fires on the market for different situations. If you have a good working chimney which is swept you could have an open flued fire which will sit at the bottom of the chimney.

A Balanced flued fire is a sealed unit, which means it is a glass fronted fire. These are available in the more inset fires or as outset gas fires, which sit out on a hearth. The fire then has a concentric flue, which generally projects out onto an outside wall. The flue has two layers, one within the other. One will draw air into the fire; the other will discharge the carbon monoxide outside to disperse into the atmosphere. Gas regulations stipulate clearances which we must consider when installing balanced flues in relation to open doors, windows and internal and external corners etc. of your property, all of which can have an adverse effect on the flue operation if not adhered to.

It is strongly advised that you install a carbon monoxide detector in your home in close proximity to the fire itself. Carbon monoxide kills, and it’s completely taste and smell free. A carbon monoxide detector will provide you with firm peace of mind concerning your safety, and may save your life.
