Escea Offers Gas Heating Options for the Christchurch Rebuild

However, with emission restrictions in the Canterbury area wood burners are no longer an option for new builds; gas is now the only option. Escea’s new DX series gas fireplaces offer an alternative to the traditional heating options for new-build homes.

Escea’s DX1500 is a hybrid fireplace that combines the functions of central heating and a gas fireplace into one very attractive option. It uses a hot-air ducting system to move heat directly from the fireplace and ensure it is distributed evenly around the house.

The DX1500 is 1.5 m wide and makes an impressive focal point in the main family area. This fireplace offers a double-sided, see-through option, allowing it to face into two rooms. With a heat output of 10.2 kW and an efficiency in the range 4.3–5.0 Star (depending on the flue) this is a serious option for heating the whole house.

The Escea “Smartheat” control system also allows this fireplace to be remotely controlled over the internet, controlled by smart phone app, or to be connected to a home automation system.

Escea has just announced that a smaller, 1 m wide DX1000 will be released later in the year.
