Eskabe Vent Free Heaters

What Does Vent Free or Flueless Mean?

Simply put, they are gas heaters that are supplied without a vent or flue and only have a gas supply connected to them. There are no pipes that bring in outside air or push combusted air outside – this means they may be wall-mounted or portable. They are considerably more fuel efficient but are designed to minimize the amount of carbon dioxide / monoxide produced to keep the heaters safe for use indoors.

It is a SANS requirement that you have ventilation in the rooms where you are operating a flueless gas heater.  Therefore, it is important that your registered gas installer visits to asses room size and ventilation to specify the correct unit for your application.  Flueless gas heaters are better suited to medium and larger sized rooms, where there is good cross-ventilation (top and bottom).

All Eskabe gas heaters are wall-mounted, available for use with either LPg or natural gas and are flueless.
