New Mini Vent Prevents Unnecessary Heat Loss

One of the main attractions of stoves 5kW and under and gas fires 7kW and under is that they can be installed in many properties without the need for additional ventilation.

However, in more energy efficient homes built during or after 2008, even low kilowatt appliances require a dedicated air supply calculated from 1kW.  With these small appliances requiring only minimal air, standard vents for stoves and fires are noticeably over-sized which can cause concerns about heat loss and draughts.

Answering industry demand for a small stove vent and small gas fire vent, we are pleased to announce that there is a new addition to our LookRyt AirCore family of through-wall ventilators …

With a tube just 77mm in diameter and internal grille barely bigger than a light switch, the Mini LookRyt AirCore is perfectly proportioned to satisfy stove ventilation requirements and gas fire ventilation regulations without the worry of excessive heat loss.  Easy to install, fixings are supplied for the mini internal panel and the tube is simply retro-fitted through a hole pre-drilled with an off the shelf core drill 78mm diameter.

Once the Mini LookRyt AirCore is installed the miniature internal panel may be painted or wallpapered to match the surrounding décor.  This feature, unique to the LookRyt range, enables an already discreetly sized panel to be virtually unnoticeable.
