5 KW Tinderbox log burner installation in Taunton.
This stove installation is in a Victorian terrace house in Taunton. Our customers have just moved in and are feeling cold! Victorian homes are generally poorly insulated. A wood burning stove is a perfect solution for this house.
However, the fireplace opening is small. Because it is Victorian, we know that there is a much larger fireplace behind the existing opening. Most homes of this era will have a good size original fireplace waiting to be rediscovered.
So we enlarge the fireplace back to its original size. We install a four foot lintel to raise the fireplace to one metre. The width is now around 900 mm. This is a great size for woodburners as it allows greater stove efficiency. Furthermore, it is aesthetically more pleasing. We render the fireplace chamber with sand and cement. The chimney breast is then bonded and skimmed with plaster.
Next, we install the Register plate and chimney flue liner. The flue liner connects to a terracotta bird cowl. This cowl is then banded around the chimney pot. No birds or rain will enter this chimney!
We are now ready for the hearth. We install a 1200 x 900 Brasilian slate hearth in one piece. Now for a coat of slate oil.
We install the stove and test it. Furthermore, a flue draft reading gives 19 pascals. This is great. After a smoke and spillage test, this stove is ready. We sign it off with Hetas.
The end result is good and we receive a great review.
5 KW Mi-Fires Tinderbox Stove.
The stove that we install is efficient, ecodesign, and Defra rated. Although it is wood only, this stove has an 85% efficiency rating. This is superb and A+. Basically, this means it can burn a small amount of fuel for longer. Also, the Tinderbox stove is one of the cleanest burning stoves on the UK market. This is an important aspect as we become more aware of our environment. Burning wood is almost completely carbon neutral. Now that modern woodburners are clean burning, they are a great alternative to gas and oil. Furthermore, a stove when lit looks amazing.
