DIY Installion of a stove?

We do not recommend that you install a stove yourself.  An incorrect stove installation can be very dangerous, please be aware that hot fumes from the stove are a fire risk if the stove has been improperly connected with the flue or if the flue itself is incorrectly installed, secondly carbon monoxide fumes can cause suffocation, poisoning and death if they enter closed areas with poor ventilation.   Any DIY installation MUST be inspected by your local authority building control to check it complies with building regulations

What size/type of stove should I choose?

Our engineer will advise you of the correct size/output for your home.

Smoke Control Zone?

If you live in a smoke control area, you will be advised about the clean burn stoves available in order to comply with the clean air act.

Do I need a chimney?

The chimney is a very important factor when installing a stove.  An existing chimney needs to be assessed as to its suitability.  A poor chimney can result in dangerous fumes leaking into rooms, roof spaces and in some instances into a neighbours flue.

Lining a chimney?

It may be necessary to install a chimney liner.  A pressurised smoke test can help to identify if your chimney is leaking.

I dont have a chimney!

If you don't have a chimney don't worry! Our HETAS engineers are qualified to advise you on the correct size, positions and type of insulated flue that will be suitable!.

Fire Alarms & Carbon Monoxide Detector

Working Fire alarms and a carbon monoxide detector MUST also be installed to comply with building regulations.

An adequate air supply is required in order for the stove to operate correctly and safely.  You will be advised if any extra vents are required in order to conform to building regulations.
