Your Questions Answered
Do we need permission to have a Wood Burner installed into our home?
You only need permission if your home is a registered listed building or maybe a potential listed building.
Is HETAS a legal requirement and what does it stand for:
Yes. HETAS is a legal requirement. You will receive a Certificate upon completion of installation. HETAS is abbreviated for: Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme (UK). Once you have the Certificate, keep it safe as you will need it for proof should you sell the property.
What size Wood Burner do we need?
In the first instance we will do a survey of the room or area it is to be installed. There is no need to have a larger Wood Burning Stove fitted than required as this could lead to a fire risk ie tarring up the chimney. It could also blacken the windows. It also wouldn't be economical from your point of view. We will do an accurate calculation when we visit the property.
What are Wood Burners made of?
Iron or Steel. We can advice on a good quality Burner that will provide longevity.
Do we need a chimney?
Yes. Please ask us and we will provide a fully detailed explanation.
Should we have our old Wood Burning Stove cleaned?
You can clean the glass with a product we can advise you on and there is an aerosol paint (heat proofed) which can be sprayed onto the outer body itself which will make it look like new! Should any part be broken we will be able to replace (if not obselete) or repair. Please ask.
A Wood Burner is a completely new way of heating for us; can you show us how to use it properly after installation?
