Chimneys and Lining

Chimneys and Lining

If you are thinking of buying a wood burning stove or gas fire there is a strong possibility your chimney will need lining.

The reason we have chimneys is to safely remove the bi-products of burning from a wood burner, wood burning fire, log fire, gas fire and gas stove. This way the fumes are taken from the wood burning, gas or multi-fuel appliance to the outside of our homes without causing any danger or discomfort to the people that live there.

Chimneys and Lining

There are a number of reasons why a chimney may need lining:

  • The flue is leaking smoke from your wood burning or multi fuel appliance into other rooms in your home
  • The flue that is already installed is far too big for the wood burning or multi fuel appliance being used
  • The flue is external and is too cold to draw air properly
  • Tars and condensates are coming through the chimney in any part of the building and causing staining

There are many different ways of lining a chimney, the suitability of these methods depends on your individual system. You should seek advice from a professional on which solution is the best for you.

    I have a 4 inch flue liner which fire can I use with this size flue please

    • Alex says:

      None of our fires can be used on a 4 inch liner. Only a select number of balanced flue fires can be used with a chimney renovation kit where a four inch liner can be used as part of the set up. Those are the Reflex 75 and 105 and the Riva2 fires.

    if i have a 7in brick chimney can I adjust the riva2 500 flue to rear exit without using a 5in liner ?

    Our new build has a masonary chimney with a 8 inch clay flue Liner.

    We are looking to buy the Riva2 750. We would prefer a balanced flue that uses the chimney.

    Is this achievable? As we really do not want a conventional flue in our new home

    I am looking for a gas fire with good effect (log or coals) but is there such a fire that I can use the fire without the gas switched on for the effects only.
