Decorative Fuel Effect Fires
A DFE fire is a stand alone basket type fire, which is fully open to the atmosphere with the flames clearly visible through the coals/logs. You can have Log effect or Coal effect.
Inset Live Fuel Effect Fires
An ILFE fire has a back panel assembly which has a flue spigot and a built in heat exchanger, (and sometimes a glass front) to deflect the heat out into the room.
Most domestic gas fires are rated below 7kW and will therefore not require ventilation dirct to outside air. Fires 7kW and above however will require that we
fit a permanent vent direct from the room where the gas fire is to be fitted to outside air.
