If your old chimney is in poor condition, it’s likely to leak dangerous gases, such as carbon monoxide. Before putting an old chimney back in the game, you’d need expert chimney advice on what work and repairs you need to undertake first. As unlined flues are commonly a problematic area of old chimneys, refurbishment advice on chimneys often includes fitting a new liner. This is so you can ensure the safety and efficiency of your flue, as well as meeting stove manufacturer requirements.
Larger houses often feature open fires, or the so-called “Inglenook Fireplaces”. Homeowners looking to install this type of open fireplace will need professional help to answer a series of chimney questions to ensure their chimney is designed perfectly. From flue size measurements to ventilation requirements, we can provide valuable chimney advice to aid you in setting up an open fire safely at home.
