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.

Benefits of Flued Gas Heaters

The main benefit of having a gas flued space heater is the flue. The flue is a direct vent for potentially dangerous carbon monoxide to be sent out into the atmosphere where it rapidly dissipates. The last thing you want is carbon monoxide concentrating inside because it can prove to be the last thing you breathe in. Thankfully you can purchase a carbon monoxide alarm that detects the presence of a leak indoors and alerts you to it.

Too much carbon monoxide in the air can make you very sick and, in the worst-case scenario, can kill you. Every year there are stories of people who have made themselves grievously ill by bringing the outdoor patio heater or a BBQ inside. A flue is a serious safety feature that helps to maintain fresh air in the home.

Great to keep operating costs down

Another benefit of flued gas heaters is that they are a cost effective way of heating a room compared with reverse cycle heating. This is especially the case with the full range of convection-style flued gas heaters such as the Rinnai Energysaver gas heater. That has a 4.8-star energy rating and the added advantage of zero emissions into the room.

But the reason that most people choose to install the radiant flued gas heaters is that they give off the sort of cosy heat that most resemble an old-fashioned wood fire. Especially when installed in an existing fireplace. Their heat output is excellent, can be operated by remote control, and they are definitely an atmospheric way of heating your home. There's nothing quite like home and hearth.

Flued Gas Heater Repairs

Metropolitan Air Conditioning has expert and experienced gas fitters who know how to fix most of the problems that you might encounter with flued gas heaters. We can even sort out leaks in the roof associated with the flue. But the great thing about Metropolitan is that we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the same prices at all times. So you can have your gas flued heater repairs done at a time that is convenient for you without paying any after-hours charges.

Our services cost the same on a public holiday or a weekday afternoon. Depending on the age of your gas heater and the nature of the problem you need to be fixed it might turn out to be a better long term option to replace rather than repair the heater. But in the short term, you can have us out to fix your flued heater within an hour of your call*.

Flued Gas Heater Installation

We can supply and install any brand of flued gas space heater. That includes all the many varieties of Rinnai and Omega gas heaters. Not only can we put a new unit in, but we also take away the old one.

We even do installations from scratch and have the knowledge to help you select the best position for a flued gas heater. The best place is generally the old fireplace because it is so much easier to run the flue up the chimney.

What else are you going to do with an old fireplace? There is no need to go hunting around for a new gas powered heater because Metropolitan can easily provide an appropriate model for your particular needs. But if you do supply your own flued heater, we can install it, with the proviso that we only install new units.

Gas Flued Heaters FAQ

We answer the major questions about gas flued and unflued heaters
All indoor gas heaters require a flue. The chimney-like apparatus is used to remove the pollutants from a home that are produced when burning gas. Outdoor gas heaters do not require a flue, but the fumes can still be dangerous. Always ensure you have adequate ventilation if you do plan to use unflued gas heaters outside.
Unflued gas heaters are dangerous if used indoors or in a largely enclosed outdoor space. This is because gas heaters produce exhaust gases. While flued gas fireplaces and heaters have an outlet to direct those exhaust gases outdoors into the open air, unflued gas heaters don't have that function. And without a flue, you could be breathing in harmful and potentially lethal exhaust gas and carbon monoxide.
No, it does not need a flue, as electric portable heaters do not involve combustion and therefore do not produce harmful gas emissions.
The price will differ from heater to heater and from state to state. So the best way to determine the cost is to look at the Energy Rating sticker on the heater. This will reveal how many GJ or gigajoules of energy are used per hour. Multiply this by the GJ charge rate on a recent energy bill to get an estimate on the cost of running a gas heater per hour.
Gas heaters are slightly cheaper to run than electric heaters due to the costs of local tariffs. The more gas appliances you install the more you can save as the cost of gas per unit generally decreases as consumption increases. Electricity is also priced higher per unit when compared to the price of natural gas. While gas appliances may cost a little more to install, running costs are generally lower. This means that using natural gas almost always works out cheaper in the long run.
