CVO supplies a wide range of Italian manufactured balanced flue fires, becoming an increasingly popular solution amongst homeowners in the UK. Here’s all you need to know about this high efficiency gas fire solution to help you make an informed decision before you buy.
What Is A Balanced Flue Gas Fire?
A balanced flue gas fire, otherwise referred to as a closed combustion gas fire, is an appliance that transports the burning material to the outside atmosphere via a concentric flue, which draws in fresh air from the outer pipes and vents out the exhaust from the inner pipe.
Flue termination can be on a side wall or through the roof. Because of this, a balanced flue fire can be installed and fitted to a home’s existing chimney with minimal building work required. Likewise, they can be used within a false chimney breast, meaning a chimney isn’t even necessarily needed.
These glass fronted, sealed, gas appliances meet all the latest building codes for energy efficiency with low fuel consumption making them the perfect centrepiece for any home
These clear benefits make this style of fire a popular choice among many homeowners, from those wanting to install a balanced flue gas stove without impacting the structural integrity of the home, to those simply wanting a cost-efficient and greener fireplace.
