defra & SMOKE
London is an official smoke controlled area.
This means you can only burn wood if you have a stove that’s Defra approved for smoke controlled zones.
Defra stoves burn wood with high efficiency which means less pollution. Most stove manufacturers have a Defra range.
If you’d like some more info please give us a call and we help direct you to finding your perfect new stove.
If you have an old Chimney it is best practice to line it.
The liner creates a direct and even channel from the wood burner to 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.
In an unlined chimney this soot often causes a blockage at the flue pipe. Lining the chimney 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.
twin wall flue systems
NO CHIMNEY: NO PROBLEM
Rigid twin wall flue is used where there isn’t an existing chimney. It’s a little larger than flexible liner because it’s built with a layer of insulation between two sheets of stainless steel. The standard diameter of twin wall for a wood burning stove would be 200mm external / 150mm internal.
Twin wall flue is suitable for internal and external installation so you can either have it run up through your house, up the outside of a side wall, or even freestanding to a height of 3m above a roof. The regulations can be strict but there’s loads you can do with it.
All of our installers are HETAS registered so you can be safe knowing all of our installations will be done to the highest industry standards.
And we make a point of following best practice above and beyond regulations.
This includes Lining Chimneys and recommending the highest efficiency stoves.
