Flueless – Unflued – Gas Heaters
Portable LPG & Natural Gas Heaters
Flueless – unflued – gas heaters are a great way to heat your home.
They have a number of advantages over flued heaters:
Energy Efficiency & Operating Costs
The typical Star Ratings for Unflued gas heaters, like the Rinnai Avenger 25 gas heater, are from 5.8 to 5.9 Stars, meaning that they are about 90% efficient in converting the gas to usable heat.
Flued heaters can have a broad range of performance, with Star Ratings from 1.0 to 4.8 Stars.
This equates to 61% to 84% efficiency levels.
This means is that you could save as much as 32% of the cost of heating by choosing an Unflued heater compared with some Flued heater models.
Unflued heaters can be moved where needed, from one room to another, as long as each room has a gas bayonet connection.
This is why they are commonly referred to as Portable Heaters.
The heater plugs into the bayonet connection via a gas hose.
This also allows you to rotate the direction of the heater to aim the heat at or away from a particular part of the room.
Portable heaters are much easier to take with you when you move.
You simply disconnect it from the bayonet and go.
Unflued heaters cost less.
When comparing like sized flued and Unflued Gas Heaters from the same manufacturer, the flued heaters are 44% to 57% more expensive.
If you already have a bayonet fitting in your home, there is no cost to install an unflued heater.
Even if you need to add a bayonet, the installation costs would be modest.
In addition, you do not need to put a flue hole in your wall or roof, so there is no risk of water leaks nor the extra cost of a flue kit.
