Installing a woodburner or solid fuel stove in your home

Woodburners and solid fuel stoves continue to grow in popularity, offering a cost effective way of heating your home. Burning wood, is largely carbon neutral so it’s also a greener means of heating your property than using fossil fuels.

Installing a wood burning stove is also a great way of adding character and a focal point in your home.

Whether your stove is a stand-alone installation in your existing property, or part of a wider heating system for a renovation or self build, it is essential to use a HETAS registered installer to ensure you get the best from your new installation and meet all regulations and safety requirements.

Is your home suitable for a woodburner or solid fuel stove?

Firstly you should check if there are any planning restrictions or lease terms that might restrict your options – is the property in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) or listed? This aside, the majority of homes are suitable for a stove installation, or can be made suitable. If a house has a chimney, it is usually possible to fit a stove. If no chimney is present, a rigid flue system can be built, either straight up and through the roof, or out through the wall and up the side of the building.
