Our stoves have found homes in all kinds of fireplaces. Our recommended installers have installed thousands of wood burning stoves across a broad swathe of the south coast of England.

your fireplace

Sometimes it has simply been a case of lining the chimney and installing a wood burning stove in an existing fireplace, but whether your fireplace needs opening up and widening, or would benefit from an extensive makeover and a new hearth, our recommended installers can plan and execute whatever work is required. You don’t even need a chimney. Whatever your requirements, we can help guide you to the right wood burning or multifuel stove, the right flue for the installation that you want to achieve, and the right team to carry out the work.

Our recommended installers have worked in, Bournemouth, Brockenhurst, Beaulieu, Burley, Bransgore, Christchurch, Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh, Fareham, Ferndown, Hythe, Highcliffe, Havant, Lymington, Lyndhurst, Milford-on-Sea, New Milton, Poole, Portsmouth, Romsey, Ringwood, Southampton, Salisbury, Swanage, Titchfield, Wimborne, Winchester and everywhere in between!

Installing your fireplace

If you want a wood burning stove but don’t have a chimney, we can provide the Chimaster twinwall flue components to suit your requirements, for self-fit or for fitting by one of our recommended HETAS installers.

Installing an insulated twinwall stainless steel chimney is the simplest, most cost-efficient flue solution. A twinwall chimney is made from rigid stainless steel fluepipe manufactured with an inch or more of insulation sandwiched between an inner and outer steel skin. Modular components of varying lengths and including bends, supports, flashings and inspection chambers, are assembled to provide a fully-integrated flue between your wood burning stove and a safe terminus above roof height. A twinwall chimney (or 'flue') can be installed either internally, rising up through the building and out of the roof, or it can pass through the external wall and up the outside of the building. The height of the chimney will depend on its position relative to the roof and other parts of the building.

If you would prefer not to see too much fluepipe above the stove, then a false chimney breast can be built to conceal it, and to provide a more traditional appearance.

Alternatively, we also supply pumice liners for use in the construction of brick chimneys. For more examples of twinwall flues, have a look at our gallery.

Typical open fireplaces in many British homes are often too small to accommodate a free-standing wood burning stove. Freestanding stoves are designed to have air circulating all around them, and it is especially important that there is as much space above a stove as possible with, ideally, at least 100mm on either side and 25-50mm behind.

Fortunately, many chimney breasts are wide enough that they can be opened up to really make the most of the installation. (Alternatively, the stove can be positioned in front of the chimney breast, with the flue connecting back into the chimney.)

Our recommended teams of highly experienced installers have built many bespoke fireplaces for customers, from traditional rustic brick-and-beam constructions to sleek, clean-lined modernist installations to fireplaces with beautiful made-to-measure limestone or marble fire surrounds.

At the showroom we carry large stocks of specialist-sourced beams, bricks, tiles, hearth materials, fire surrounds and everything you might require for your new fireplace.

For more pointers on whether or not your fireplace could be opened up, see our blog post:

While rarely cost-effective when compared to a twinwall installation, sometimes only a brick chimney will do! Whether it is just replacing a section of stack on a previously capped chimney or building a new stack from the foundations up, we can advise and supply materials and recommend highly experienced builders to carry out the work.

This kind of work is best carried out over the summer months, so it is advisable to plan ahead, especially if next winter’s warmth depends upon it!

Where possible, a chimney should always be lined when a wood burning or multifuel stove is installed, because it is the best way to ensure the safe enjoyment and easy operation of the stove for years to come. For more information please see our FAQs page.

We offer two grades of top quality stainless steel liner – 316 or 904-L - depending upon which types of fuels you intend to burn on your stove. The liner is sometimes insulated, either with loose-fill Leca, or - in large chimneys - using high temperature Rockwool ‘wraps’.

Lining not only ensures the integrity of the flue that is evacuating the smoke from your home, but increases the flue draught, and helps to prevent the potentially dangerous condensation of flue gases inside your chimney. An insulated stainless steel liner warms up quickly, enabling you to light your stove quickly and easily.

With fixed joints between the liner and any rigid flue components, a strong, integrated flue system can be established from stove to chimney terminal, allowing you to safely and responsibly enjoy your stove to the full.

The chimney will typically be sealed using a horizontal register plate at the top of the fireplace opening. This prevents any heat loss from the room up the chimney, as well as retaining the insulating materials within and helping to keep your fireplace safe and clean by eliminating falling dust and debris.
