    I am about to fit a stovax studio 1 cassette(flush fit) wood burning stove .


    what i would like to know is do you need to fit a liner for building regs ?


    I know that it is considered safer but the house was built in 1966 with 7" ceramic liners . in my thinking these are a better option but the fire rep is trying to sell me the lining and fitment (so it complies with Heptas) for £750 (he won't sign off if i fit) on top of an £1800 fire his reasons are there is know way of stopping debris coming down the flue and falling on top of the fire .

    Anyway if it has to be done so be it but would appreciate a second opinion
    many thanks in advance.

    If you want a second opinion, get a second opinion. A registered chimney sweep will sweep and issue a certificate if the chimney is OK to use.
    Might be better if he just sweeps and doesn't do stove installs.

    Expect to pay £50 - £80 for this service.

    I had a liner fitted for a stovax by a Hetas team who did the stove install on the same job this year. What grade and length of liner are they installing for £750?

    I'll dig out the quote (it was itemised) I had but I'm sure the liner supply and install wasn't anywhere near that.

    I think you've misunderstood Deluks' post. The stovax studio 1 is a nice unit but unless you've got a really complex flueing arrangement £750 to line the chimney does seem very expensive.

    hi i know the £750 is expensive thats why i was trying to find the regs to see if i could get out of it, as ceramic liners are fine and the chimney is in good condition. :D I'm a builder and I'm struggling to find someone to sign off retrospectively if i fit the fire/liner. i could do it myself for £259.

    didt understand his bit about sweeps not fitting fires ???

    anyway all sorted now

    many thanks
