CHOOSING THE RIGHT GAS FIRE FOR YOUR HOME

Current gas safety regulations stipulate that any gas installation must be carried out by a Registered Gas Safe engineer. If you are looking at installing a gas fire in your home, our network of over 400 showrooms around the UK will be able to provide a site survey to give you an idea of what will and will not fit in your home.

One of the main issues around fires is the type of flue or chimney in your home. Below are an outline of typical flue types:
.

  • A brick chimney – this is recognised by a chimney stack with accompanying terracotta pot or gas terminal. Internal dimensions are usually either 9″ x 9″ (229 x 229 mm) square or 8″ – 9″ (229 – 254mm) round cross-section.
    .
  • A Pre-fabricated flue – this has a metal flue and terminal. The internal dimensions are usually 5″ (125mm) or greater round cross-section.
    .
  • A Pre-cast flue – this can be identified by a ridge vent or metal flue tube and terminal. The internal dimensions vary but most of our fires operate on 13500mm2 or greater cross-section pre-cast flues in good working order.
    .
  • No chimney or flue – if you have nothing on your roof, you probably have no chimney or flue. In this case, a balanced flue will usually suit this situation, when positioned on a suitable outside wall.
    .
  • Standard fan cover – power flue fires have a flue pipe coming out of the outside wall and the fan cover is used to make this safe.
    .
  • Heatsaver fan cover – the optional Heatsaver fan cover is an interlocking electro-mechanical device that greatly reduces airflow into the flue when the fire is turned off.
    .
