Your guide to buying a wood burning stove

There’s nothing like the warmth of a real fire. A wood burning stove brings character and charm to any room. It’s also a practical and low maintenance way to reduce your heating bills.

However, there’s some confusion over the regulations surrounding wood burning stoves and what you need to take into consideration before you purchase one. As the price of wood burning stoves can vary greatly, here are a few tips to help you make the right choice when faced with a bewildering array of products.

Building Regulations for Stove Installation

As a HETAS Registered Woodburner Installer, HGS are bound by guidelines set by the BFCMA (British Flue & Chimney Manufacturers Association) when installing wood burning and multi fuel appliances in domestic properties. Being HETAS Registered gives our customers added reassurance that they will receive a professional install service that complies with the current safety legislation.

 

If you install a wood burner stove or any biomass, wood or solid fuel appliance without using a HETAS Registered Installer then you could be invalidating any insurance claim that may have to be made if something goes wrong following the installation.

A HETAS Registered Installer self-certifies that their work complies with the relevant building regulations and the customer will be issued with a Certificate of Compliance following installation. The information on the certificate is used to record the installation and in England and Wales it is used to notify your Local Authority Building Control Department of the work that was undertaken.
