Installation of your Wood Burning Stove
There are many guidelines and regulations that must be adhered to when installing a multi-fuel or wood burning stove. To safely achieve the greatest efficiency, each installation must be carefully considered. We can advise on all aspects, from appliance size to aesthetic contemplations.
If you have an old chimney it’s best practice to line it. The liner creates a direct and even channel between the wood burner and the top of the chimney, which means soot and tar have less uneven surfaces to stick to. Any soot or tar that is created is much more likely to fall back into the burner to be recombusted. In an unlined chimney this soot often causes a blockage at the flue pipe. Lining the chimney also ensures there’s no leakage from the chimney during the life of the wood burner, which could otherwise be a risk in an old house.
Insulating your chimney liner isn’t mandatory but we do recommend it, especially if you don’t live mid-terrace. Insulating the liner helps keep the flue gases hot all the way up the chimney, which helps keep a good draw on the fire, and it helps protect against rust from condensation over time.
