What are High Efficiency Gas Fires?

Aug 18, 2007
The modern gas fires have long been among the most efficient home heating appliances the world over. Not only are these appliances beautiful and often a classic, decorative touch that dresses up a room while making it cozy, they also offer warmth and comfort that requires less fuel consumption than traditional domestic fires. High efficiency gas fires take that even further.

The beauty of high efficiency gas fires is that they are easy to install. Even if you have a modern gas fireplace, it is still quite easy to adapt it to accommodate the very latest gas fires.

Modern gas fires typically require a chimney to expel waste gases outside instead of in the home. They are mainly room sealed and have glass fronts. On the other hand, a high efficiency fire with a balanced flue can be installed with a chimney or without one. They utilize a flue that is installed in an outer wall and expel waste gases to the outside in that manner. They draw in air from outside of the room and use it for combustion. What this technology means to you is that these high efficiency gas fires are able to operate at as much as 85% efficiency where only about 15% is wasted of the gas that these fires consume.

Gas fireplaces can range in style from traditional and comfy to edgy and stylish. There are many different models to accommodate any interior decor. This is one appliance that you will want to show off and provides an attractive, chic focal point for your room. Now, how often can you say that?

The ease of installation of gas fire units makes them a great choice for do-it-yourselfers. There is no need to install a chimney so no extensive renovations are required. Many high efficiency fires make use of a balanced flue system. The fire place only needs to be installed on an outside wall or can be installed in a conventional fireplace.

If you want to save money on your heating bills, add a touch of class to a room in your home and use a form of heating that is kinder to the environment, then high efficiency gas fires are definitely the way to go. This is a very effective and efficient form of secondary heating in your home. The operating costs are less than traditional fireplaces so that, when combined with the savings incurred through their regular use, makes them a very attractive secondary heating option.
