FitStove Links


It's a good idea to have a look at the HETAS website.

If a fitter/shop claims to be HETAS registered then check in their find an installer section.

Building Regulations

If you install yourself, or use a non-HETAS installer, the building control department of your local council will need to inspect the work.

Check out the Building Regulations 2010 Approved Document J - Combustion Appliances and Fuel Storage Systems.

Gas Safe Engineer

If you require a gas fire to be capped off, try Phil Booth.

Chimney Sweeping

It is essential that your chimney/flue is swept at least once a year.

I always ensure suitable sweeping access is provided and no soot traps exist in the flue.

I can recommend Ian Walker of Wirral and Chester Chimney Cleaning.

Telephone: 0151 336 7274

When calling Ian please mention me.


For buying logs locally I recommend Treescapes in Oxton:
Quality seasoned and ready to burn logs.
Free local delivery on all orders.
