What is a Gas Flued Heater?
Gas flued heaters are heaters that have a flue to vent the by-products of gas combustion outside of the home. They run on both natural gas or bottled gas and are typically installed in an existing fireplace to easily accommodate the flue, although they can be installed elsewhere. You can install gas flued heaters in large spaces for whole house heating, or in small rooms for a more targeted approach.
There are two broad types of gas flued heaters – radiant and convection. A radiant gas heater displays a visible gas fire behind a grate. The modern versions of these have a fan to spread the heat throughout the room. The other type is a convection gas heater that blows hot air into the room. They both run on a natural gas connection and are a popular heating option.
