Building regulations don’t state that you have to line your flue when fitting a wood burning stove, however they do state that you must be sure that the chimney is in good working order and has been sufficiently maintained. In our view this is a very difficult thing to have long standing peace of mind over! We strongly recommend fitting a liner, and some installers may even refuse to install your stove without fitting one.

  • They protect the house from heat transfer to combustibles.
  • They increase the temperature of the flue gases which in turn tend to improve the draw of a chimney. They reduce the condensation within the chimney.
  • They cure problems of smoke leaking out cracks in a masonry chimney.
  • They eliminate staining on the outside of a chimney due to condensates and tar seeping out.
Yes. You can install a woodburning stove in properties without a chimney. There are various types of twin wall systems available to suit both internal and external aesthetics of your home.
This approval allows you to use the stove with dry wood only, or approved smokeless coal, in a smoke controlled area. These restrictions are usually placed in heavily populated urban areas, normally larger towns or cities.
Most solid fuel stoves are approximately 40-50% more efficient than an open fire and allow the user to have control over the rate of burn and heatoutput to the room. Often a large percentage of the heat generated by central heating is lost from a room where an open fire is present (even when not in use). The installation of a stove will mean that the room is much warmer as the air flow is greatly reduced due to the installation of a register plate and the ability to close the air controls fitted on the appliance.
The KW output that you need will all depend on the size of room you are wanting your stove installed in.Here’s how to work it out: Measure the room in Metres: Width x Length x Height and divide the total by 15.
Wood burning stoves have flat fuel beds because wood burns better on a flat bed of ash, with air for combustion coming from above. Multi fuel stoves are fitted with grates because coal and smokeless fuels need to burn on top of a grate, with air entering from beneath the fire and the remainder of the fuel falling through the bars. Multifuel stoves can burn wood too as they are also designed to allow you to build up a bed of ash upon which to burn logs should you wish.
If the stove has a rated heat output of over 5kW, then yes it does. This should provide 5.5cm2 of free air for every kilowatt over 5.
Yes, To protect your health, Breathing in the fumes from gas or solid fuel fires can cause serious damage to your health and in the worse cases prove fatal. Having your chimney swept will help make sure that the flue is sufficiently clear to allow the dangerous fumes to escape safely out of the chimney. 10. Why do I need a HETAS engineer?
You can be safe in the knowledge that their installer has been trained and assessed to carry out compliant work. Will save both time and money and ensure your appliance works safely and efficiently Receive a certificate of compliance following the completion of the installation Ability to choose a range of installations covered by the scheme including biomass boiler systems, dry appliances, appliances with boilers, hot water and heating systems along with re-lining chimneys. HETAS originated as the "Heating Equipment Testing & Approval Scheme". They are the governing body of solid fuel domestic heating appliances, fuels and services and are responsible for the registration of competent installers and businesses.
