Suitable for
Domestic heating appliance suitable for living rooms and open plan areas. Heating area 50-77 m² (depending on where you live in NZ).

Please bear in mind that the Compact 2 has a robust fan which is audible, especially in smaller rooms. If the operating noise of the gas fireplace plays a significant factor in your purchase decision we always recommend viewing a working model. To see who has a working display in your area, select the ‘Features’ tab and click on the ‘See it in action’ link in the top left of your screen.

Gas type

Flue - masonry Rinnai strongly recommends the use of a Rinnai flexiliner flue system. Failure to meet this criteria may result in an unsafe situation. Installation without a flexiliner flue is permissible as long as the chimney is checked for soundness and ability to achieve a good draw. If in doubt install a Rinnai flexiliner flue system.
