  1. What Can You Insulate Your Chimney Liner With?

    What Can You Insulate Your Chimney Liner With?

    Currently there are no building regulations that say you must insulate your chimney liner when installing into a chimney stack.

    There is however a regulation in place though where gases must be vented safely out a building.

    Insulating your chimney liner ensures that waste gases are safely vented and travel externally away from the burning appliance. 

    If your existing chimney is located on an outside wall it is advised to insulate your liner, similarly if you have a large chimney stack it is also recommended. 

    Choosing to insulate your chimney liner, ensures that gases are safely vented and will travel directly up from the multi-fuel stove.

    So by

  2. ​Should You Insulate Your Chimney Liner?

    ​Should You Insulate Your Chimney Liner?

    The main purpose of a flue liner is to funnel out hot gases from your stove into the atmosphere, via a chimney stack.

    The liner works when the difference in temperature causes negative pressure, which leads to harmful gases being drawn vertically up the flue system. 

    A stainless steel chimney liner is a vital part of the fuel-burning process, and creates not only a good even constant flow of heat but also allows for hot gases to escape. 

    Ensuring your flexible flue liner is then properly insulated helps to control the release of these hot gases. 

    Whilst a non-insulated chimney flue can work perfectly, the majority of the time there can be issues in relation to the surrounding cooling air, potentially leading to condensation and severely impacting the efficiency of the flue liner.

    This process causes a reduction on the temperature of the liner and potentially creates condensation thus impacting the efficiency of hot gases into the atmosphere.

    The condensation that does form then flows back down into the chimney leading to a host of issues. 

    Simply insulating your flue liner ensures that the hot gases remain hot enough to safely release into the atmosphere and as quickly as possible.

    It also removes the risk of potential condensation and moisture.

    The so-called "draw" connected with your wood burner is vital to not only its efficient creation of hot air but also in maximising fuel consumption.

  3. Why You Shouldn't Slumber Your Stove

    Why You Shouldn't Slumber Your Stove

    Slumbering is the term used to describe a fire burning at a low rate.

    It is made by restricting the oxygen flow, keeping the fire just about buring for example when you want a little bit of warmth over night.

    This though can cause problems, because the smoke released condenses inside the flue system and potentially can shorten the life of a stove or a liner, as blockages are created.

    Simply put, you shouldn’t slumber your stove! 

    You should never leave a fire unattended! 

    It is so important to make sure that your fire is fully extinguished then leaving them to just burn out. 

    This is how fires can start!
