Saving Energy With a Flueless Gas Fire

Man has gradually depleted the world of its huge natural reserves of oil and gas. Efforts are now being made to preserve these energy resources as well as our environment. Researches and advancements in technology have been focused on developing fuel-based appliances, vehicles and other machinery, in such a way that they conserve and preserve energy.

Among the various traditional and contemporary heating equipments, flueless gas fire is proving to give optimum heating results while saving energy. The reason being, that these have the ability to fully combust the fuel. Moreover, these require very little or no ventilation at all, thereby trapping all the heat that is produced by the flueless gas fire in the enclosed room.

In traditional gas fires, heat also escapes along with the exhaust from the chimney. Therefore, more fuel was needed to bring the room temperature to a certain level. On the contrary, a flueless gas fire maintains the room temperature without burning more fuel, hence saves a lot of energy.

On the average, conventional gas fires only utilise about 10% of the gas, whereas, flueless gas fires use 100% of gas to heat up the room. Flueless gas fires simply outclass the conventional gas fires. These are highly fuel-efficient, and are an ideal and economical commodity these days.

Flueless gas heaters, as the name suggests, come without a flue, or chimney. In a well-ventilated room, it preserves the heat inside the room.

Saving energy will not only contribute towards the rapidly depleting energy resources of the world, but it will save us our money as well! Huge increases have been noticed in gas and oil prices during the past decade. An energy crisis in the world is imminent, if the natural energy reserves are used, and are abused in this manner. It is high time that efforts should be made in saving energy instead of wasting ruthlessly. This will also help us in bringing down our gas and electricity bills.

Flueless gas fires may need natural gas or LPG, as their source of energy. It is designed in such a way that it ensures 100% combustion of the fuel. It is fitted with a catalytic converter, which converts carbon monoxide that is produced because of the combustion process, into carbon dioxide, and water vapours. Carbon monoxide is more poisonous in nature, but carbon dioxide is no safer either.

However, one is dependent upon heating systems during winters, especially in the colder regions of the world. Carbon dioxide emissions have lately become a cause of major concern, because these have yielded the `Green house Effect` in the world. This has been declared as the main factor of increasing `global warming`. Now to counteract the effects of global warming, we tend to resort to air conditioning of our homes, offices and cars, which simply raises the energy consumption worldwide. Therefore, in this vicious circle of energy crisis, flueless gas fire technology is deemed as a saviour of our planet, and its fast disappearing energy resources.
