The above video shows a photo taken every 5 mins during the installation of a Charnwood C-Five wood burning stove.

So once any prep work required has been completed or if you are ready to go we can install the wood burning stove and chimney system.

We offer a fully HETAS registered installation service. This means our installers can self certify their work and leave you with a fully compliant stove ready to use. Our engineers are experts in their field and are well versed in the many complexities of installing Stoves.

Now lets take you through a typical installation:

The stainless steel flexible flue liner is fitted

At this stage we insert the liner into the chimney. Liner is necessary to help release the combustion gases from the stove and your home. There are other ways to line your chimney and if a smoke pressure test can prove your chimney does not leak it is not needed at all. However we always recommend lining your chimney as it provides a safe exit for those nasty gases. If you intend to burn smokeless coal in your stove we recommend a 904 grade liner otherwise a 316 grade liner is sufficient. Fore more information about flue liners and the different grade have a look at our FAQs section.

Chimney insulation is filled

Chimney insulation is an optional extra and not always required. The process includes filling the space between the steel liner and the existing brick chimney with vermiculite. The benefits of this are that it stops heat loss from the liner into the exisitng brick chimney. Its main function is to reduce condensation in the steel liner which causes creosote and tar to build up. It also reduces the chance of downdraught which can be caused by a cold chimney. Usually we recommend this when a chimney is exposed on a building.

A protective weather cowl is attached to the liner

This connects to the liner on the chimney pot and supports the liners weight. It also keeps rain water and birds out.

The stove is fitted and connected

The stove is assembled as per the manufacturers guidelines and fitted in place. The stove is connected to the flexible flue liner via a length of vitreous enamelled stove pipe that passes through a steel closure plate. We always fit a carbon monoxide alarm in place and a data plate as per regulations.

The installation is completed

Once fitted we test the installation is in full working order. Our installers will always endeavour to talk you though your first fire and advise on how to proceed before making any full sized fires. It's important to build up the size of the fires slowly as there is a curing process that will take place within the stove.
