Metro ECO Flue Kits

The ECO Flue Kit differs from a standard flue system due to the much higher efficiency it operates at. All flue systems need moving air between the liners to ensure the outer flue liners remain cool. The benefit the ECO flue kit offers is that the cooling air comes from either the ceiling cavity or from outside of the home whereas the standard flue kit draws its cooling air from the room that’s being heated.

With a Metro ECO Flue system your home will be heated sooner and more efficiently. Once your home is heated to your desired temperature the fire can be turned to a lower setting consuming less firewood saving you money. If your home does not have a ceiling cavity, or has a sloping ceiling, simply add the Metro ECO Option Kit which allows the cooling air to be drawn into the flue liners from outside the home instead of from your ceiling cavity.

Another performance benefit the Metro ECO Flue system offers is enhanced draw due to an upward vortex created by the ECO cowls vertical discharge design. This design induces updraft to the flue gases increasing draw within the flue pipe improving the performance and heat output of your wood fire.

Standard Flue Kits

Standard flue kits are very inefficient as much of the heat generated by the wood fire is drawn up between the flue liners and vented outside.

Lab testing of a standard flue system resulted in the heated air generated by the wood fire being drawn out of the home at an astounding rate of 450 litres per minute. Even worse, this lost heat is replaced by cold air being drawn in from outside at the same rate causing a constant incoming draught. This requires the fire to be operated at a higher burn rate to heat the constant incoming cold air (using more firewood). Standard flue kits are not only less efficient, but they will heat your home slower and cause you to use more firewood costing you both heat and money.

Maximise the performance of your fire

A Metro ECO Flue Kit is an efficient way of getting the optimum performance and output from your wood fire – heating your home sooner and consuming less firewood in the process.

No heat loss with a Metro ECO Flue Kit

ECO Flue Kit

The ECO Flue Kit is suitable for freestanding wood fires installed into a home with a vented ceiling cavity. The ventilation for the flue system is drawn from the homes vented ceiling cavity and not from the room that is being heated by your wood fire.

ECO Flue Kit + Option Kit

The ECO Option Kit is an additional kit installed with the Metro ECO Flue Kit for homes without a vented ceiling cavity or for homes featuring a sloping ceiling. The ventilation for the flue system is drawn from outside the home.

Excessive heat loss with a Standard kit

Standard Flue Kit

A Standard flue kit is very inefficient as much of the heat generated by the wood fire is drawn up between the flue liners and vented outside. Wind noise may also be more noticeable as the flue liners on a standard flue kit are open to outside air.
