Rapid warmth, simple operation, high-energy efficiency and heat output and the enchantment and romance of a real log fire – minus the mess
The thought of winter in front of a Cannon Gas Log Heater instantly evokes images of delightful hot chocolate with marshmallows, cuddles and chats. Cannon’s collection of heaters for 2014 creates the perfect focal point for family and friends to gather around and share a lifetime of cosy moments. Designed and manufactured in Australia to suit local conditions ensures there is a Cannon Gas Log Heater solution to suit differing home styles – contemporary or classic. A flexible flue system means there’s a Cannon Gas Log Heater installation option for almost every possible installation scenario.
Cannon has two different ranges: the elegantly curved Canterbury Classic range and the more streamlined Fitzroy Profile range. The following checklist will assist in selecting the ideal Cannon Gas Log Heater for your needs.
1. Aesthetics: Do you prefer a more subdued black or reflective platinum metallic finish, a classic rounded profile or sleek contemporary style?
2. Installation: Would you like a standalone freestanding gas log heater as a feature element in a room or would you prefer an integrated inbuilt model set into an existing heating cavity, a newly created mock fireplace, or within joinery?
3. Flue type: Do you need a standard flue or super energy-efficient Powerflue, which draws air from outside for combustion and then vents outside via a secondary flue?
4. Gas source: Do you have access to natural gas or do you need an LP gas model?
5. Room size: Check your room dimensions. Cannon Gas Log Heaters have a generous heating capacity suited to spaces of up to 80m2.
6. Energy efficiency requirements: The 5.5-star energy-rated Fitzroy Profile Powerflue or Canterbury Classic Powerflue Gas Log Heaters are suited for use in 5-star energy-rated homes.
The Canterbury Classic range is available as either a Freestanding or Inbuilt unit. The Freestanding model can be powered by either LP or natural gas, both of which have a standard flue, an enhanced flame, double glass front and black finish. There are six possible variations in the Canterbury Classic Inbuilt range with options comprising a standard flue with black finish powered by either LP or natural gas; or the Powerflue with either black or Platinum metallic finish and powered by either LP or natural gas.
The Fitzroy Profile is an Inbuilt range with a dual glass fascia as a standard inclusion and either a standard flue or Powerflue. There are four standard flue models that have a non-enhanced flame and feature: electronic controls; a choice of finish in black or platinum metallic; and powered by either LP or natural gas. There are also four Powerflue models that are differentiated by their enhanced flame and also feature: electronic controls; a choice of black or Platinum metallic finish, and the option of LP or natural gas.
Whether you are replacing a fireplace or heater in an existing home, or incorporating a gas log heater in a new apartment, house or warehouse space, Cannon Gas Log Heaters fit almost every application.
