Emission characteristics of NOx and CO with heat loss under high efficiency combustion conditions of $CH_4$/Air prmixed flame were examined numerically using detailed-kinetic chemistry. The one-dimensional combustor length was fixed 5cm, and the equivalence ratio was varied from 0.75 to 0.95. To consider the effects of heat loss on NOx and CO formation, the radiative heat loss rate and combined heat loss rate of conductive and convective heat transfer are included. The following conclusions were drawn. In order to reduce the NOx and CO emission level simultaneously, the temperature of product gases must be reduced under 1,800K as soon as possible but kept over 1,300K during the residence time which is needed to converge CO to $CO_2$.
