Enjoy a warm welcome home with the Rinnai Ember, the little hottie that offers a stunning glow of a wood fire, the superior warmth of a gas fire, and none of the hard work!
A small gas fire with compact dimensions suitable for new builds and renovations. The Rinnai Ember is available in two sizes and delivers over 5 kW of heat output.
With stunning burn media options, large viewable flame area, and frame choices to suit your lifestyle.
Back-to-basics simple infra-red remote makes operation easy and stress free, or upgrade to Wi-Fi capability with our Wi-Fi module retrofit kit, part number R7000 (RRP $264 plus installation). This will need to be fitted by a licensed gasfitter.
Suitable for masonry installations and installations into a mock (false) chimney in open plan areas and living rooms. For masonry installations, the chimney cavity needs to be at least 200 x 200 mm in order to fit the colinear flexi flue.
Heating areas (up to)
- Upper North Island: 80 m2 (600), 96 m2 (700)
- Central and lower North Island: 55 m2 (600), 66 m2 (700)
- South Island: 46m2 (600), 56 m2 (700)
Room size consideration
Smaller rooms will heat up quickly, and due to the efficiency of the appliance, the fire will turn to a low setting once the set temperature has been reached.
Available for Natural Gas or LPG, specify at the time of purchase
120 V AC 50 Hz 2-speed centrifugal blower. Heat is distributed from the top of the appliance.
Located on the lower RHS of the base panel, in front of the gas control.
Brass ½ " BSPT male fitting. The gas supply terminates inside the heater, lower RHS of the appliance.
230-240 V AC 50 HZ high voltage electronic spark generation unit.
Colinear flexi flue, air intake Ø 75 mm, exhaust Ø 100 mm. Appliance must be installed with a Rinnai Ember flue system.
Refer below comment regarding the DV high wind vertical cowl protection kit.
Colinear (air intake Ø75 mm, exhaust Ø100 mm) to coaxial direct vent flueing (inner Ø100 mm, outer Ø170 mm). Appliance must be installed with a Rinnai Ember flue system.
N.B: For windy areas such as Wellington, coastal properties, and elevated properties on hills we recommend an additional flue component call the DV high wind vertical cowl protection kit (R3655). It is designed to wrap around the flue cowl to reduce wind entering the flue and causing flame disturbances. Refer to the installation instructions in the 'Downloads' tab for more information.
The Ember has a 1.5 m power cord with a 3-pin plug supplied. The power cord passes through a slot in the back right hand corner of the appliance.
Flame failure sensing system, pressure relief, overheat safety switch, air temperature sensor, thermal fuse, overcurrent fuse, and spark detector.
Operated using a basic infra-red remote, or for more features such as timers and thermostatic control, by using a Wi-Fi module (purchased separately) and using the Rinnai Wi-Fi fireplace controller app.
The minimum clearances listed below are measured from the edge of the outer glass.

Enables selected Rinnai gas fireplaces to be connected to the Rinnai wi-fi app for full thermostatic control and functionality.
Yes. The majority of modern gas fires have electronic ignition and safety components that require electricity. For customers concerned with power outages, there are commercially available battery backup systems. One provider is Helio (www.heliosps.co.nz) who supply systems specifically designed for use with gas space heaters and water heaters.
For flues terminating through the roof there is a requirement for how far the flue terminal needs to be from the building. This clearance is required to ensure products of combustion are cleared adequately. Rinnai recommends the flue cowl should have a 500 mm clearance from any part of the building.
For more information, refer to the installation manual of the gas fireplace you are interested in – available on our website.
With the exception of the Compact 2 model, all Rinnai fires may be suitable to have a TV installed above them. Rinnai fires incorporate a fan that distributes warm air outwards into the room rather than directly upwards, meaning that installation of a TV may be an option.
Please refer to the Specification guide for gas fireplaces for recommended installation clearances. It is the responsibility of the owner to check the TV installation instructions with the TV supplier to verify clearances. Some TV manufacturers have warranty conditions that state a TV is not to be installed above a fireplace. Rinnai does not accept any responsibility for damage to a TV resulting from the use of this information.
This is a fireproofing box that isolates the appliance from combustible materials. For the Linear, Evolve, Symmetry and Arriva models, this is integrated into the design of the fire. For the Neo inbuilt, Ember and Compact gas fires, a zero clearance frame or box needs to be purchased in addition to the fire if the installation requires isolation from combustible materials.
For reliable operation, Rinnai gas fires should be serviced every two years (including inspection of the flue system). If they are in a particularly dusty environment or subject to excess lint (for example dog hair, or where there are newly laid carpets) then annual servicing is recommended.
