Conventional or Balanced Flue?
Q: What is the difference between conventional flue and
balanced flue stoves?
A: Conventional chimneys rely
on the natural circulation of heated air to expel the products of
combustion up your chimney.
Balanced flue appliances are sealed from the
room in which they are installed and a twin-wall pipe vents
directly outdoors. Air for combustion is drawn in through the outer
pipe whilst the inner pipe removes the combustion gases to the
exterior of your property. Depending upon the stove selected, the
twin-walled pipe may exit horizontally through an external wall or
vertically through the roof.
