Faber Gas Fires
The Faber name is synonymous with elegance & style. Since its formation in 1844, Faber has forged a reputation for design excellence. The company now occupies a leading position in Europe for top of the range gas fires and sells its products into 15 countries across the globe.
The New Zealand gas fire collection is direct from Europe. It consists of a select range of fires to meet New Zealand tastes and heating requirements.
No Noisy Fans and Operates Without Power
There simply no better way to relax than with a Faber fire. Why? Because Faber fires do not have any fans. Heat transfer works by simple heat radiation.
Imagine that - no irritating noise. Just perfect peace and quiet.
Without a fan there is no need for power. That means your fire will operate during any power outage. Furthermore, it simplifies installation.
Direct Vent Fires - The Healthy Choice
Direct vent gas fires (also called closed combustion or balanced flue fires) are now the preferred alternative to conventional flue systems. With a direct vent system, combustion air is drawn from outside the house, rather than from the room the fire is located in.
The advantages of this system are that fire performance is often better (modern buildings are much more airtight than old ones and this can result in the fire ‘starving’ of oxygen) the fire is unaffected by house ventilation systems which alter room pressures eg dehumidifying systems common in many houses in NZ the fire is more efficient because warm air is not taken from the room and sent up the exhaust (the fire takes cool air from outside the house instead). Furthermore, the fire does not draw cool air into the room to replace the warm air used the flue does not need to go up through the room ceiling and roof, and is commonly put through the wall immediately behind the fire.
Both conventional flue and direct vent flue systems are of course also healthier than open gas fires as they release all combustion by-products outside the house.
All Faber fires offered in the New Zealand collection are direct vent fires.
