Wood Burning Stove Installation

aga stoveA wood burning stove installation is now a very popular consideration for many with the year on year rises in domestic fuel bills, the winter in particular is a very worrying time.Hetas Logo

As a qualified HETAS installer, (see my about mepage for details), I have personally witnessed the rising popularity of using a wood burning stove as a primary heat source

A Few Facts and Figures

At the time of writing, average energy prices have rises by around 21% in the past year alone, increasing annual household bills enormously. The Energy Saving Trust claim savings for a house using electric are “almost £400 a year.”

Households currently burning open fires may also be in for a surprise, as compared to a wood burning or multi-fuel burning stove they waste an incredible amount of heat running at around 25-30% efficiency most of the heat goes up the chimney, whilst wood burners run in the in excess of 70% which is obviously a huge saving on fuel and a increase on heat output.

Efficiencies apart, energy prices are predicted to continue rising! Now really is a good time to seriously consider a wood burning stove installation or multi-fuel stove installation.

 Wood Burning Stove Installation Requirements

Wood burner installation includes sweeping and lining the chimney, if you opt to heat water or other rooms then this will affect the price. Always use a HETAS registered installer to ensure Health and Safety as well as the warranty on your appliance, as some manufacturers as for a HETAS certificate before they honour their warranty!

So what will you need? Well presuming you have a brick chimney:

A multi-fuel or wood burning stove with matching stove pipe

Flue Liner

A flue liner kit – which usually include

A register plate

Fire cement

Carbon monoxide Detector

A Hearth (Granite, Quarry Tile, Polished Concrete)

Vermiculiate insulation (optional)
