Escea Direct Vent

All of our Escea indoor gas fireplaces use a Direct Vent flue. The Direct Vent flue system allows our fireplaces to achieve up to 90 percent efficiency rating in comparison to an open-fronted fireplace which is around 45 percent efficient. Escea gas fires heat you, not the flue! Find out more by watching this video.

6 Ways to Keep Warm this Winter

1. Hide and seek with your windows.

 

Living room with a fire and flowers on table

Curtains and blinds can significantly reduce heat loss through your windows. To maximise the sunshine hours, open your curtains and blinds when the sun is shining during the day to capture the warmth, then close them in the evening to keep the heat in. The main reason why curtains and blinds are used within a household is to create a seal that will prevent the warm air from getting out and also stop colder air coming through. When warming your house with a gas fire, it is important to play hide and seek with your windows. Ultimately, your fire will heat your room more efficiently because the warm air will stay inside the room and you can keep your fireplace at a lower temperature.

Design Your Fire puts the power in your hands

At Escea, we are putting the design power in your hands.

We are excited to announce the release of our new web app “Design Your Fire”. With this design tool, you can create and compare a wide range of Escea fireplace ideas, mixing and matching the design features. This allows you to visualise each fire, so you can pick the perfect one to suit your home.

Design Your Fire is super easy to use. With the drop-down menus, you first select the fireplace model you want to view. Next, choose the style and colour of your fireplace surround (fascia). To finish your fireplace design, add a fuel bed.
