The FlueCube Chimney Cowl
The FlueCube is a unique design of chimney cowl that diverts typical winter weather conditions which cause incomplete combustion, from
above any flued combustion heater. A differential of downward cool air flow and upward heated gases fuels a perpetual and contained heated
ring surrounding the flue outlet (see FlueCube UK's diagramatic representation). This along with its aerodynamic flat mesh top (see Bournelli's principle
for aerodynamic uplift), protects from cold air sinking into the flue causing down draft or negative pressure; making lighting/ operation difficult;
smoke entering the room, poor heat, and poor, smoky - incomplete combustion. Winter inversions typically affect the intended upward flow
of gases in the flue.
Without the weather being a problem it's then up to the appliance which is now able to function more accurately to the ratings
supplied by the manufacturer/ testing laboratory - and in real life winter conditions rather than the optimised lab-based ones.
A typical FlueCube experience is no smoke after lighting within 2 minutes, up to double the burn time conserving your wood fuel,
and an odourless - overall cleaner self sufficient wood heating system. What others say about the smoke in room problem/

A well designed appliance with a FlueCube above will help lower common smoky problems. Click here to see what our customers are saying.
Note: Although the FlueCube is easy to install, we do still recommend using/ consulting with a registered log burner and flue installer. Flue standards are written into the building code. Installation of the FlueCube should not interfere with those existing flue standards. BRANZ: Flue Installations in Enclosures, BRANZ: Installing Solid Fuel Heaters. We will also be available throughout the installation process and welcome your feedback and enquiries to get the most out of your winter wood heating experience. Happy heating.
