The gas fire has been around for many years but have required a flue or venting so have been fitted in to existing fireplaces or fitted with a fan to vent noxious fumes. Today the choice of gas fire is endless but there has been a demand for a gas fire that wouldn’t require a flue.
The flueless fire also known as the catalytic flueless fire has been around for some time. They incorporate modern technology which passes the fumes through a catalytic converter which in turn converts the harmful gasses in to water vapour and carbon dioxide.
This means that the flueless fire is not only 100% efficient but has low running costs. The UK has been relatively slow to utilise this technology with some 40+ million catalytic fires in Japan alone however that is now changing.
These superb fires can now be installed almost anywhere as long as there is a gas supply and the room has suitable ventilation. Fires are available as freestanding, inset or wall hung so there is a fire to meet any requirement.
