Test results for five flued-gas log fires, priced from $3749 to $5499
Home owners have embraced open-plan living, but heating such large spaces can be a challenge. The use of flued gas heaters, where fumes are released or pushed outside, offers an efficient and effective option for a big area. Add a fireplace effect and you have an environmentally friendly home, while retaining the cosiness of the log fire. An LPG conversion kit allows you to operate the heater in areas without natural gas, but operating costs will be higher as a result. All models tested except the Cannon have this option.
