Market release

March 2018


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 ( 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.

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.

If you’d like to schedule a service, just give us a call 0800 RINNAI (0800 746 624) or fill in our form online.
