Frequently asked questions about High Efficiency Flued Gas Fires
Can I have a glass fronted high efficiency flued gas fire?
Yes, providing you currently have a working fireplace with a gas supply* and suitably sized fire aperture. See Technical Specification page for dimensions.
*Designed for natural gas only.
How do I decide which fire will heat my room sufficiently?
As a rough guide only, measure the room and multiply the height x width x depth (in metres), and divide this by 14. The result is the average heating requirements for the room in kWs.
Please note that the construction, insulation, furnishings and type and number of windows in the room MUST also be taken into consideration.
How does this work?
Glass fronted gas fires reduce the warm room-air being drawn up the chimney or flue. In addition to this the convection air design draws in present cold room-air and circulates this through the hotbox to produce convected hot air back into the room. This increases performance and optimises efficiency.
Are they safe?
For complete safety and peace of mind, all of our fires incorporate an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS), which detects when the oxygen levels in the room fall below a specified level and causes the pilot flame to lift away from the sensing probe. This activates the Flame Failure Device (FFD), which cuts off the gas supply to the fire and renders the appliance safe.
What about installation and servicing?
All gas fires must be installed by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
We have designed this fire with the installer in mind; so that installation including future servicing is made simple with minimal effort and disruption.
