Having discussed and reviewed options for your stove, fireplace or both, our experienced engineers will carry out a survey. We will then send you an quote that will include the ‘scope of works’, and the cost of key items such as the stove, fireplace or beam if required and labour charges.
Typically an install can take either one or two days. At which time one of our in house experienced HETAS installation teams will attend the place of install and begin by covering all carpets and furniture with protective plastic and cotton dustsheets.
The next stage if required will be be to knock out the fire chamber opening to the appropriate size and support structurally with a lintel if required. To install a new hearth and if required line the chamber with fireboard or another non-combustible material such as stone already chosen by you. Also at this stage the new surround or beam will be installed if required.
The next stage requires the lining of the chimney flue, not always but in most cases, when a good quality stainless steel liner will be fed down from the chimney flue to the chamber below. It very important to use a good quality liner, all our liners carry a minimum 10 year guarantee. Installing a flue liner improves efficiency, performance and longevity of your stove.
Then the stove can be fitted and connected to the flue system. The stove is then tested and commissioned by our HETAS registered installer and your room is cleared, cleaned and left as we found it. Rubble can be removed if required too.
Following installation, we then arrange a follow up appointment where we explain operation and maintenance to ensure you are completely happy and confident to use your new stove.
