Combining the warmth of a solid fuel stove with the ease and innovation of gas, our diverse range of highly efficient gas stoves utilise the latest in heating technology. Whether you are looking for traditional, contemporary, or a mixture of the two, our gas stoves will supply the perfect heating and style solution for your home.
Conventional Flue: Conventional flue systems are easily recognisable as either a conventional brick or stone chimney, pre-fabricated or pre-cast chimney system. Should your home have none of these at present, it is usually possible to have a pre-fabricated system installed in your home if required.
Brick/Stone Chimney (Class 1): The chimney stack rises well above the roofline and is topped by a traditional chimney pot or gas terminal. This type of chimney relies on the natural circulation of heating air to expel the products of combustion up your chimney.
Pre Fabricated Flues (Class 1 & 2): You will see a metal flue cowl on your roof. Some are all metal whilst others may terminate through a short rectangular pot (but without a chimney stack). These flues create the same circulation of heated air as a brick or stone chimney.
Pre Cast Flue (Class 2): Many modern homes have been built with such flues. You can readily identify them by either a metal flue cowl or a raised ridge terminal on your roof. The natural circulation of heated air expels the products of combustion. These flues tend to be very shallow in depth so a slimmer fire is often required. Deep appliances however may be able to be installed with the use of either a spacer kit or deeper rebate into the fireplace.
Balanced Flue (No Chimney Required): Balanced flues work in conjunction with Glass Fronted gas stoves or fires. The appliance is completely sealed from the room into which it is installed (so there are no draughts and heating efficiency is increased) and a twin-wall pipe vents directly to an outside wall. Air for combustion is drawn in through the outer pipe whilst the inner pipe removes the combustion gases to the exterior of the property. Depending on the stove or fire selected, the twin-walled pipe may exit horizontally through an external wall or vertically through the roof.
