Multiple Rooms: For an open flue appliance where the path to outside is via another room use the 'Walls to outside' option within the Open Flue Calculator to select the number of walls vents need to be fitted into. It will also take into account adventitious air or if the appliance in a compartment as per the selected options.
Room Sealed: For a room sealed appliance simply enter the heat input and the calculator will find the vent sizes required if the appliance is in a compartment.
