Our Services Installing a fireplace/stove or flue liner requires planning permission from your local authority as a Hetas-registered company, we can certify this for you, saving you time and money knowing the job is done correctly and complies with current legislation. We offer our installation service throughout the midlands, although we will consider installations further afield.
Since the mid sixties, the most common lining for class one chimneys has generally been clay-type liners. Although there are many types of chimney systems, pre-sixties chimneys are usually unlined and brick built. We will, however, always conduct a survey prior to installation and will advise you as to whether your chimney requires lining. If your stove or open fire is in daily use then it should be swept at least twice a year. If you are having a gas fire installed and the flue was previously used for solid fuel it is vital the flue is swept prior to installation. Seasoned hardwoods are best - preferably that which has been seasoned for three years. Do not burn painted or creosoted wood. Unseasoned wood will produce tar over a prolonged period which can cause chimney fires.
Flueless Gas Fires
The advantage is they are 100% efficient and you have more choice in where they can be installed. The disadvantages are there is a dampness so not designed as a primary source of heat. Permanent ventilation is required and usually your room volume must be a minimum of 30 cubic metres. We would always recommend a flued fire as opposed to a fluless.
