Can you install a wood burning stove without a chimney?
With the rise of home improvements and modern takes on country aesthetics, wood burning stoves and fireplaces have become a desirable addition to our households. They provide warmth and atmosphere in colder months and act as a year round centrepiece to our rooms.
But with many contemporary homes lacking a chimney, some assume they have to go without a wood burner, compromising for gas or electric instead. Thankfully, this isn’t the case and it is possible to have a wood burning stove without a chimney. While there are plenty of gas and electric burners to choose from, with the new twin wall flue system you don’t have to miss out on your dream wood burner.
What is the Twin Wall Flue System?
The twin wall flue system is an insulated flue pipe constructed into a substitute chimney that runs outside the house, allowing exhausts from a wood burning stove to escape when a traditional chimney is absent. It can be constructed using various parts which allow a wood burner to be positioned in a variety of places in a room, making it highly versatile. However, twin wall flue pipes can’t be cut to size and can’t have more than four bends, making expert planning and installation a requirement. Experienced fitters can recommend the most appropriate placement and construction for your wood burner in accordance with correct health and safety regulations.

Not only can we remove your old fireplace, we can install a wood burning stove without a chimney using the twin wall flue system, and we’ll even re-plaster once installation is complete.
