||This report presents results of measurements and modelling of the combustion products emitted from flueless gas appliances. Measurements were made using wide a range of such appliances, at varying firing rates, in a controlled chamber, including simulations of conditions that would be experienced in air-tight rooms. Ventilation in the chamber was either in the form of vents in the chamber walls, or at controlled air exchange rates via a mechanical ventilation system. This enabled the prediction of the likely concentration of combustion products for a range of ventilation provisions, room sizes and potential uses of the flueless gas appliances. Concentrations of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, nitric oxide, ultra-fine particles and aldehydes were measured, together with gas consumption.
