The Escea DX1500 Installation and Ducting.
The Escea DX1500 Installation and Ducting - The ducts transport warm air through the ceilings, walls, and floors, circulating heat not just within the room, but throughout the house and even between levels.
This is a fully insulated firebox which uses the unit as a return air much the same as a standard central heating system meaning very little heat is produced from the face of the fireplace itself. No safety screens are required.

Gas fireplaces are available in two styles, the open gas convection boxes or the glass fronted sealed units. Some are available with pebbles, logs or coals and generally the sealed gas fires are the more efficient.
Gas fireplaces are all different in their installation and flueing requirements but all these specifications are listed on the heater pages. If you're not sure, contact us .
The gas fireplaces listed on these pages are all tested and approved for the Australian market and all are flued so you won't have any problems with emissions or unburned gas fumes escaping into your living space.
Some of these gas flame fires are extremely efficient and some not so. You will notice that some companies call their fireplaces 'decorative' or 'ambient'. This means that not a great deal of heat is produced but they are intended more as a visual fireplace and there are some great looking styles available. Check on the relevant gas heater pages as the output or heating capacity will be listed. Most gas fires are available as zero clearance for flexibility of installation.
We know that most of you will want great looks and plenty of heat so there is a good selection here that will meet both criteria and most importantly, they are available at the right price. If you find a better price on anything on these pages, let us know - we'll beat it!

- Inbuilt wood heaters.....Regency, Lopi, Eureka, Heatmaster, Jindara, Hergom and Clean Air

All these styles can be achieved with open fireboxes or the all time favorites, the slow combustion wood heater. All except 2 door of course, which are available only as slow combustion (or wood heater with a sealed door).
Zero clearance wood fires are simply insulated fireboxes that are designed to be 'boxed' into a timber or metal framed surround and triple flued to create the inbuilt fireplace look. Some like the Heatmaster A series insulated fireboxes can also be freestanding.
Almost every fireplace requires some accessories such as a fire screen and fire tools and some just need a good dress up. Have a look through our 'General Information' section for all your fireplace accessories and general fireplace information.
