Log Burner and Flue Systems
Are you looking to upgrade your home heating before the winter months arrive? Rather than replacing your boiler or heating system, there are other options that are just as useful. For an alternative heating system, why not get a log burner installed? Or to improve the system you already have, what about replacing your flue? Find out more about log burners and flue systems below. If you're in need of our log burner and flue systems services, just get in touch with us on, 01922 662840.
Should I Install a Log Burning Stove?
This is the most important step before purchasing a log-burning stove. There are various elements that will determine whether or not a log-burning stove is right for you and your home, so do your research.
Where Do You Live?
If you live in a town or city, find out if you're in a Smoke Control Area by contacting your local authority or visiting its website. If you end yourself in one, you'll only be able to burn DEFRA-approved smokeless fuel (such as anthracite) – wood is not one of them.
If you do want to burn wood other non-exempt fuels, you'll need to specify a DEFRA-exempt stove; a list is accessible here(opens in new tab), although most manufacturers and suppliers are fast to mark out models with this seal of approval.
What Kind of Home Do You Have?
Air is required for burning in stoves. The air in the room must be refilled in order to have a suitable amount of air. This is less of a concern in older, draughty homes, particularly those with vast rooms. This is not the case in modern, well-insulated, airtight self-built homes.
Mechanical ventilation systems complicate matters even more. Room-sealed stoves with a direct air supply (that is, air is taken from outside the house rather than within) have a significant application here.
If you have an airtight home, seek models that offer all of the air the stove requires from outside – some just provide the primary air source, with air pulled from the interior.
