just saw the new argos catalogue. they are doing something called a '
Landscape flueless gas fire'. £399. it is glass fronted and they say is 100
percent efficient. also it needs no flue and no chimney.
they also say the room its used in must not be smaller than 27 cubic metres.
what happens to all the nasty gases we are warned about that are normally
vented up the chimney i ask my self. would it really be safe in a tiny front
room in my tiny terraced house?
Same as happens when you use a gas cooker in the kitchen.
There won't be any nasty gasses unless the appliance is
faulty, or the room is unsuitable. Of course, you may not
want that volume of water vapour or CO2 released into the
house, but that's the price you pay for having no flue.
It depends if the room meets the manufacturer's requirements
on volume and ventilation.
Argos sell several Kidde CO alarms, perhaps they should throw one in!
You could get both on 16 day trial I guess and see if CO is being
detected; get the digital CO alarm, the 0146.
Gas cooker grills are known to be hazardous as they are rarely
grill jets gets blocked with fat.

I think it's assumed that you have sufficient background (trickle) and
rapid ventilation (opening window of 1/20th of the floor area). The
minimum volume assumes that at a 'normal' air change per hour rate,
there is sufficient air for the combustion + breathing, and the nasty
gases go out the window.
