Fitting a stove in East Dulwich, South East London.

Today we fitted a Esse 500c defra approved wood burning stove. Unfortunately next door had punched an RSJ through the flue while converting the loft, so it was a rare case of installing a flue liner to allow the stove to work. The liner was installed by a company recommended to us by one of our trade customers. In most instances chimney flues are fine for most stoves if they pass a chimney sweep test. 99% of flues are fine, exceptions usually being if you or your neighbours have had a loft conversion or suffer from subsidence. Gas stoves must ALWAYS be fitted with a liner, to make sure the fumes are expelled quickly from the flue as they can still be flammable.
