Unflued Gas Heater in Lower Hutt or Wellington | Watersmith Plumbing and Gas

Vulcan unglued gas heater in a Lower Hutt home

Do you have a unflued gas heater in your Lower Hutt or Wellington home?

Unfortunately flueless gas heaters are used in a number of Wellington homes. These include portable gas and LPG heaters and any gas heater which is not flued to the outside.

Because unflued gas heaters do not have fixed, attached vents to the outside, they release dangerous gasses into the enclosed spaces they heat. Carbon Monoxide and Nitrogen Dioxide are particularly bad for you and can kill you and your family.

Flueless gas heaters are also a prime source of condensation and moisture. If you use an unflued gas heater regularly you’ll more than likely have problems with mould and mildew. Mould is not just unsightly, it can cause irreparable damage to furniture, curtains, window frames, wall linings and clothes. It smells really bad too!

By using an flueless gas heater in a confined space you are risking the health of your family. You’re slowly poisoning them, increasing their chances off serious illness and respiratory problems such as asthma.

Before you pull out your heater again next winter, consider a change. Replace your unflued gas heater with a clean heating option. It will keep your family healthier and will save you money—flueless LPG heaters are one of the least efficient forms of heating.
