FAQs

Can I install a wood burning or multi fuel stove myself?

By law the installation of all wood burners and multi fuel stoves requires that you notify your local Building Control Officer so that they can ensure that it complies with local Building Regulations. Your local authority will need to inspect the installation at a cost to you. If an appliance is not fitted correctly the potential for death from smoke inhalation or Carbon Monoxide Poisoning are extremely high.

What is the difference between a multi fuel stove and a wood burner?

A wood burning stove is usually built without a fixed grate, when the wood burns the ashes are collected and when the fire needs more fuel, fresh logs are placed on top. logs combust more effectively and evenly when resting on a bed of ashes, which gives you maximum efficiency and heat output from your wood burning stove. Multi-fuel appliances have a raised grate with moving bars or a central riddling grate and ashpan, you can burn wood, smokeless fuel and coal. The ash is contained in an ashpan below the grate to enable safe removal and maintain effective combustion conditions.

What is a HETAS certificate and why do I need one?

Hetas registration is a certificate for stove installations similar to Gas Safe and gas fire installations. This ensures that works carried out are to a good standard are safe and  meet current building regulations. All our engineers are HETAS engineers registered. Upon completion of the installation we will HETAS register the works and complete a safety notice plate, this details the fire and chimney used. This certificate and plate could be requested by your local planning inspector or your building insurance, proof of a HETAS installation could also be required when you sell your home.
