Woodburning and multifuel stoves Birmingham, Worcestershire & the Midlands

Specialist Installation Services

Are you are located in a smoke control area? If so you will need a special type of DEFRA approved woodburning stove www.DEFRAwoodstoves.com

Woodburning and multifuel stoves can only be fitted and legally certificated by fully qualified, trained and registered HETAS installers.

Each installation should conform to national and local Building Regulations and also comply with Health and Safety and Fire Safety requirements.

Insurance companies will not look kindly on DIY or non-professional installations which put the security and safety of householders at risk.

New 2013 Woodburning Stove Regulations

From July 2013 under new EU Construction Product Regulations it will be a mandatory requirement for ALL woodburning and multifuel stoves sold and fitted in the UK to be marked and approved with the CE mark of approval. This guarantees minimum standards of quality, performance and construction

Building Control Regulations must be adhered to and Insurance Companies are unlikely to pay out following any fires or accidents involving appliances which do not conform to the new regulations.

All HETAS approved appliances will meet the CE standards and qualify for CE markings but sub-standard appliances from overseas and second hand units are unlikely to do so.

New stove purchasers should ensure the product they are buying is guaranteed CE approval otherwise they may be faced with costly replacements and refitting charges in the very near future.

Installation Costs

Because of the wide range of stoves available and the differing requirements and aspects of each type of building, it is impossible to give an accurate assessment of the fitting costs of a woodburning stove without a detailed site visit and survey.

Experienced and professional HETAS installers charge a nominal fee for these assessments which is likely to be refunded if the work is undertaken.
