Bring func­tion­al­ity and beauty to­gether with a flue­less gas fire­place. ‘Con­sider the lay­out of your home and take into ac­count open-plan spa­ces, con­join­ing hall­ways and stair­cases, as these af­fect your over­all heat­ing re­quire­ments,’ says Calore’s Ruan Bas­son. 8 The ben­e­fit of a flue-less gas heater: it burns more ef­fi­ciently thanks to nat­u­ral white stones or sim­i­lar to cre­ate a flame ef­fect. Flue-less gas fires also give you heat at the flick of a switch. Con­vert­ing a flued-gas model to a modern flue-less op­tion is rel­a­tively easy when han­dled by the pros. Bioethanol fires are gen­er­ally used for aes­thetic ap­peal and ambience (but not much heat). Liq­uid ethanol is a green, non-fos­sil fuel that cre­ates a small amount of Co2 and water vapour when burn­ing. housed in a tank, it makes a clear flame that burns with­out any smoke, soot or smell. Make your fire­place the fo­cal point and build your in­te­rior de­sign around that. a flue-less gas fire­place means no mess, mak­ing it prac­ti­cally labour free. The con­trol valve eas­ily al­lows you to cre­ate the right mood, height of flame, and heat out­put as needed. For sim­i­lar try home Fires. 8 home­ n
