Fitstove Links


It's a good idea to have a look at the HETAS website.

If a fitter/shop claims to be HETAS registered then check in their find an installer section.


Building Regulations

If you install yourself, or use a non-HETAS installer, the building control department of your local council will need to inspect the work.

Check out the Building Regulations 2000 Approved Document J - Combustion Appliances and Fuel Storage Systems 2002 Edition.


Gas Safe Engineer

If you require a gas fire to be capped off, try Phil Booth.

Chimney Sweeping

It is essential that your chimney/flue is swept at least once a year.

I always ensure suitable sweeping access is provided and no soot traps exist in the flue.

I can recommend Ian Walker of Wirral and Chester Chimney Cleaning.

Telephone:  0151 336 7274

When calling Ian please mention me.



For buying logs locally I recommend Treescapes in Oxton:
Quality seasoned and ready to burn logs.
Large net sacks (60x80cm) £5 per net.
Free local delivery on all orders.
