Open Fronted HE Fires in York
This sort of gas fire installation in York provides the look and feel of a real open fire with net efficiencies of up to 74%. This sort of fire provides both radiant and convected heat. Radiant heat is emitted from the coal or pebble fuel effect and the convected heat is generated by cool air drawn to the base of the flame which passes through a heat exchanger and is then emitted as warm air though the gap above the canopy.
Glass Fronted HE fires in York
This sort of gas fireplace has a glass panel across the front of the fire that radiates the warmth generated from the fuel effect directly into the room. The glass panel concentrates the radiant heat so that more heat is forced to the room and less is lost through the chimney. Combined with convected heat that’s produced by cool air drawn into the base of the flame through the heat exchanger and then emitted as hot air though the gap over the canopy, this makes glass fronted HE’s the most efficient conventional flue fires available.
Radiant Fires in York
Radiant fires in York produce both radiant and convected heat. They feature ceramic radiant plaques instead of a coal or pebble fuel effect. The ceramic radiant plaques create radiant heat which is emitted directly into the room. Convected heat is produced by cool air drawn to the base of the flame, through the heat exchanger and then emitted as warm atmosphere though the gap on peak of the heater.
Balanced Flue Fires York
These fires in York are designed for those who want all the advantages of a gas fire but do not have a built in chimney in their dwelling. A balanced flue fire comes with its own flue terminal that’s vented directly through an outside wall. They are glass fronted, completely room sealed appliances. The radiant heat generated in the fuel-bed combines with convected heat, which is generated by cool air drawn into the base of the flame through the heat exchanger and then emitted as warm air though the gap above the canopy, making balanced flues one of the most effective types of gas fires available.
