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.
There are a number of reasons why a chimney may need lining:
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
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 ?
Yes the Riva 2 500 conventional flue can be fitted into a builders opening unlined (with a minimum 7”).
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
Hello, yes the Riva2 750 can be installed with either a conventional flue or a balanced flue. Your local retailer can advise you which is best for your home, find your nearest one here. Many thanks, Chris
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.
Hi Gill, the Gazco Reflex range does this, and allows you to enjoy the LED effects without flames and heat. You can find out more about the Reflex range here: https://www.stovax.com/reflex
Many thanks, Chris
