Stove Installation Cornwall
 
 

If you are thinking of getting a woodburning stove to add a touch of class to your home, or just to reduce your carbon footprint, then you need to take a few moments to consider the flue. On a woodburning stove the flue will be quite different from a traditional, open chimney. This is down to it being completely sealed, preventing air flow into or out from the room. It is important that a flue for a stove is airtight, so that it draws air from the room into the stove. A poorly fitted flue will have a negative effect on the performance of the stove.

The flue will need to be built and designed to retain heat from the gases which pass through it. This is intentional as hotter gases move faster, drawing more fresh air into the stove. For this reason, the flue will be much narrower than traditional chimneys. By forcing the gas through a narrower flue speeds the flow. Again this increases air flow into the stove and encourages the gas to condense once it is released.

If you have an existing chimney which you would like to use, then we can supply and fit a lining to act as a flue. This give you the narrower flue necessary and protects the interior brickwork of chimney from the hotter temperatures. A liner will also give you a smooth flue, which helps and prevents the build up of soot and creosote.

A proper, purpose-built flue liner is vital for chimneys in older buildings. With thin walls and old mortar they will not provide sufficient protection against the heat of the stove gases. It is especially important to have a good liner if your home has is thatched. The hotter exhaust gases of a stove as opposed to an open fire means that a chimney will not keep the heat from the thatch. This is one of the leading causes of thatch fires in the UK. Having a proper flue liner fitted will protect against the hot gases and prevent fires.

Another factor to consider is that the acidic nature of the stove's exhaust gases means that it will erode the bricks and mortar of a chimney. This can lead to leaks, leading to carbon monoxide being released into the house.

Remember, once it is installed, you flue will need to be maintained. This doesn't take much, cleaning twice a year is all it requires (more if you try to burn unseasoned firewood). Sweeping a flue is something which many people do for themselves. However, you should check the details of your insurance policy. Many home insurance policies require that any flue or chimney which is in use, must professionally swept at regular intervals. Of course the added benefit of having a professional sweep clean your flue is that they bring their own specialist tools and and can carry out the work without any fuss or mess.

Keeping the flue properly and regularly swept insures that your stove works efficiently and is safe to use.

Reduce your carbon footprint...

 

...burn wood for fuel.
  3  
 
 

It may be surprising, but wood as a fuel is carbon neutral. The carbon released by burning the wood is no more than if the tree we simply left to rot. Properly managed woodland in the UK supplies firewood for thousands of homes and ensures that for every tree felled at least one other tree is planted, to absorb the same amount of carbon as the burnt tree. On top of this, the careful manner in which trees are selected for felling means that each removed tree benefits its neighbours. There are also other wood based fuels; pellets or chips can be produced from wood waste, which is also used for kilns which dry wood in preparation for sale as firewood.

It is important to burn only suitably dry wood. Traditionally this means seasoning it but modern firewood producers use giant kilns fired by waste wood to dry the wood to the necessary 20% maximum moisture. It is possible to season your own wood, it should be protected from the rain and stored off of the ground. Cutting and splitting the wood will reduce the seasoning time as more water can escape from the exposed fibres. It will take between 12 and 24 months to properly season wood, depending on the variety of wood and the weather.

Seasoned wood will burn hotter than green wood and ensure both greater efficiency as well as fewer pollutants. Burning green wood will coat the inside of your chimney with creosote and tar. Seasoned wood will feel lighter, make a distinctly hollow noise when tapped and often start to split at the ends. Moisture meters are available to check that the moisture content is low enough.

Never burn processed woods (hardboard, MDF, etc) or treated wood (painted, stained, etc) as it can release toxic chemicals, not to mention make a mess of your stove.

Most modern wood burning stoves will have an efficiency rating of 80% or higher. This is achieved by both the inherent efficiency of wood as a fuel and technological advances,a mainly in controlling the flow of air within the stove and flue. This air flow ensures that the stove burns very hot and many stoves incorporate a 'secondary combustion' feature, subjecting the exhaust gases to great heat, burning up the particulate carbon before it can be released into the atmosphere.
