What is the difference between conventional flue and balanced flue fires?

Conventional chimneys rely on the natural circulation of heated air to expel the products of combustion up your chimney and can work with either open or glass-fronted fires.

Balanced flues work in conjunction with glass-fronted fires only. Here the appliance is sealed from the room in which it is installed and a concentric pipe system vents directly to outside. 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 fire selected, the concentric pipe system may exit horizontally through an external wall or vertically through the roof.
