Want a gas fire but no visible drain? Check out these clever solutions!
You now know that it is not possible to install a gas fire without an outlet, but there are several clever solutions to hide the flue almost invisibly in, or under the house. This way, you continue to enjoy the gas fire and are not forced to use a flue that rises above the ridge of the house. We discuss the two options:
1. A gas fire with gable outlet
You are not obliged to discharge the flue gases released when burning gas above the ridge of the house, which is the requirement for a wood fire. In contrast, when burning gas, it is enough to discharge the flue gases to the outside, for example through the façade or wall of the house.
Inside the house the flue may be visible, outside the house you will see little of the flue. A sleek solution for when the flue is not suitable or desirable!
Fitting the gas fire
The flue of the gas fire can easily be hidden indoors by building in the fire or installing it in a casing. This way, the flue of the gas fire runs through the surround to the outside where the flue is still visible. Visit our inspiration page with built-in fireplaces to see the possibilities.
2. Drainage via DRU PowerVent
Installing a gas fire in any room, without a visible drain? That is possible with DRU PowerVent! PowerVent makes it possible to discharge flue gases to the outside at a distance of up to 100 metres. We completely conceal the flue in a surround, through other rooms in the house or even through the crawl space of your home. In addition, you are completely free to place the fire in the place that best suits your home.
Because of the distance we can cover with DRU PowerVent, it is possible to place the fire at the front of the house and have the flue come out behind or next to the house. We will conceal the flue inside and let it come out outside, at your desired location!
