Even if there is no existing chimney we can still install a wood burning stove using an insulated modular stainless steel chimney system known as twin wall.
This is the case for installing a wood burning stove in a conservatory, extension or new build property.
ABOVE - Stove Installation in a modern property with no chimney in Bristol using twin wall - modular stainless steel chimney system. The stove is the Charnwood Bay BX on the bench stand.
There are essentially two routes the twin wall pipe typically can take - through the property internally or exiting through the wall at 45° and travelling up the side of the property externally. Please see the below illustration for an example of both routes.
The stoves used in this kind of installation tend to look best on a pedestal or log store to give them some presence in the room as they aren't being restricted by a chimney breast chamber. Below are two examples of our installations using both routes.
ABOVE - Stove installation in a single storey extension in Bristol. The stove is the Heta Scan-line 7D in black and we used a tear drop shaped riven slate hearth to locate it in the corner of the room. The twin wall pipe has been powder coated in black to match the stove and hearth (as standard the pipe is a shiny stainless steel finish). You can see that the twin wall needs to come up by a few meters at least above the extension height to comply with building regs and guarantee a good draw for the stove.
ABOVE - Stove installation with no existing chimney with an external system in a two storey property. The stove is the Charnwood Arc with store stand in black. The hearth is black honed slate. The twin wall pipe has been left uncoated in stainless steel. We needed to take it all the way up to beyond the original chimney stack to comply with building regs and again make sure the stove gets enough draw to work efficiently.
