Installation Advice

Wood burning stoves can be installed in properties with or without chimneys however you may need to line your chimney flue if your stove is being fitted directly to a chimney. If using a flue, we’d recommend speaking to your HETAS qualified installer to advise on a suitable flue for your wood stove installation.


Depending on your local council, your home and the type of flue used, you may require building permission for your installation and if you’re planning on installing your wood burner yourself, you’ll need to inform your local Building Control so any work carried out can be inspected and signed off. Alternatively, if installing your wood burning stove with a HETAS installer all work can be signed off by that installer and you’ll be provided with a certificate to confirm that the appliance has been installed in accordance with the building bye-laws.


Direct Heating Supplies would always advise consulting with a HETAS accredited installer for the installation of your wood stove. To find an installer in your local area, please visit the HETAS website.

 

FAQs

Does my chimney need to be lined?

It’s best for a HETAS qualified installer to advise on the condition of your chimney and to recommend lining your chimney if needed. Lining your chimney can in certain instances make your stove work better. It also lowers the risk of tar and soot build up, which if left untreated can cause chimney fires.

 

Which size woodburner do I need?

The kW output for your stove will depend on the size of your room, including the length, width and height together with insulation levels. As a general rule of thumb, to achieve an ambient winter room temperature when the outside temperature is freezing, you’ll need approximately 1kW of heat output for every 14 cubic metres of space. Your HETAS accredited installer will however be able to advise on the ideal size woodburner for your home and room.

 

Can my home have a wood stove?

Most homes are suitable for wood burning stove installations however depending on your local authority, you may need to seek planning permission before installing a stove.

 

What’s the difference between a cast iron stove and a steel stove?

To look at, there aren’t a huge number of differences between cast iron stoves and steel stoves, although cast iron stoves tend to be associated with traditional models as wood burners were traditionally made from cast iron. You will however be able to find many models that are traditional in appearance today and made from steel.

A cast iron stove tends to take longer to heat up in comparison with a steel stove, however cast iron tends to also keep hold of heat for longer, meaning your room will stay warmer for longer after the fire has gone out.

 

Is it best to buy dry wood or fresh wood?

It’s always best to burn dry wood instead of fresh wood as fresh wood tends to contain a much higher moisture content which results in a poor combustion, intensified tar levels and a build-up of soot.

 

What is airwash technology?

Airwash technology brings a flow of air into the firebox of your log burner from a well-placed air vent above the glass panel. This vent provides a constant flow of air that passes downwards over the glass and ‘washes’ the glass in the process, preventing black soot from forming and maintaining an uninterrupted view of the flames.

 

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

Wood burning stoves can only burn wood, whereas multi fuel stoves can burn both wood and a range of other materials including peat, coal and turf briquettes. The design and flow of air between a wood burning stove and a multi fuel stove will vary slightly to achieve an optimal combustion for the intended fuel source.
