Rinnai Flued Gas Heaters

Gas flued heaters heat one room but with larger models heat may flow into other rooms.  They are designed to be installed with a flue. This means any unburnt gas are expelled outside via the metal chimney (flue) rather into your room. This makes them suitable for people with breathing difficulties, the young or infirm.

Flued gas heaters are reported as being less efficient than portable (unflued) gas heaters because some heat is lost through the flue. However it is preferable to lose heat through the flue than to lose heat through air vents required with portable heaters. (Two air vents must be installed adjacent to a gas bayonet to ensure there is adequate fresh air in the room. The portable heater than attaches to the gas bayonet).

If you want affordable room heating with zero emissions then a gas flued heater is the answer. For your safety, it is important that you have your gas heater serviced every two years and regularly inspect your chimney for any signs of damage or blockage eg discolouration or stains on the wall.
