Flueless Fires and Fireplaces by CVO

Flueless or

[no chimney fires] can be separated into two groups depending on the chosen flue type – Gas or Bio-Ethanol. These fires have a living flame but do not need a chimney [or flue pipes as used by balanced flue fires] to be installed within the property. The choice can be made by reviewing the Pros and Cons of the different fuel types.

GAS OR BIO-ETHANOL? Below are a few important points:

    • FOR: Easy to use, 100% Efficient, Live Open Flame [no glass], still the cheapest way to heat your home per Kw of heat generated, many choices and styles of finish. These flueless gas fires are tested to strict CE approvals and have safety devices. easy to use and install. From 5p/hour running cost.
    • AGAINST: The only downside with these flueless gas fires is that they need an air vent installed within the property.
    • FOR: These flueless fires use gel or ethanol fuel instead of gas and are suited towards homes where there is no option at all to use gas. They are cheap to buy, easy to install, use, and are for more for decorative purposes than heat output and best suited to low use applications due to the running costs.
    • AGAINST: No safety devices, not tested to any regulations, need to be topped up using fuel bottle which means storing flammable liquid at home. Very expensive way to heat your room, X20 more than a gas fire. 100p/hour running cost. Can cause condensation due to moisture within the fuel.
