A flued gas heater is a great choice if you just want to heat one room or area of your home.
A flued Gas heater can be installed onto an internal or external wall, with the flue either going through the wall or up through the cavity. They also come as standard with a remote control.
A flued gas heater, rather than unflued, is a better choice for asthma and allergy sufferers as pollutants are expelled via the flue to outside, leaving a clean and healthy room for you to enjoy.

How a flued gas heater works
Flued gas heaters work by passing cold air over a heat exchanger, which is warmed by gas combustion. The warmed air is then pushed through a vent into the room.
A thermostat is installed inside the heater. This senses the air temperature inside the room and sends a signal to the heater to turn on or off, or turn up or down.
Unlike unflued gas heaters, which increase the level of pollutants in the home, Braemar space heaters are flued, so exhaust gases are expelled outside. With unflued heating doors or windows must be kept open to expel polluted air, but with Braemar’s flued heaters you can keep doors and windows closed and eliminate cold draughts.
Please note that a flued gas heater is not portable and it is not possible for these to be connected to gas bayonets that you may already have installed in your home.
It is possible for unflued gas heaters to have serious health issues and we’ll leave it to the NSW Department of Health and the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing to further elaborate.
