If you don’t have a chimney, you may be able to install a pre-fabricated one that works in the same way as a normal chimney would. There are options for you to have one that either runs internally or externally to your property, allowing you to enjoy a stove or fire in your home. Your local expert retailer will be able to advise which type is best for your installation.

Alternatively, many gas models are available as balanced flue versions, such as the Gazco Loft gas stove. A balanced flue gas fire or stove does not need a chimney, and instead requires a twin-wall pipe to vent directly to an outside wall. Air for combustion is drawn in through the outer pipe whilst the inner pipe removes the combustion gases to the exterior of the property. You can find out more about conventional flue and balanced flue installations here.

If solid fuel or gas appliances are not an option, an electric stove or fire is suitable for homes without a chimney, simply plugging into a standard mains socket to function. We have a wide variety of electric stoves and fires to choose from, ranging from the more traditional glow of the Huntingdon 30 electric, to the contemporary and versatile flame effects of the Skope fire range.
