Nobody can deny the radiant warmth and pleasure we all get from watching the roaring flames of a log burning stove or open fire. They have become increasingly popular in recent years due to the rise in energy costs, and the push towards everyone becoming more environmentally aware and using renewable energy sources.

Our specialist heating engineers are HETAS/Gas Safe registered, so are on hand from the very beginning to give you advice on current regulations, what size stove, chimney type and fuel type would best suit your requirements. Here are some questions we are most frequently asked:

Can I fit a stove myself?
Yes, you do not have to use a HETAS registered installer to fit your new stove. However, if you choose to do this you will need to contact your local building control department, as they will need to inspect and certify the work being undertaken is done to current standards.
What are the benefits of using a HETAS registered installer?
