Your choice of Stove may be dictated by the type of chimney or flue in your home. If you are not sure then take a look at your roof and cross-reference it with the simple guide below. Don't worry if you don't have a fixed flue, there are many gas fires that are available as a Powerflue or balanced flue model and a fantastic range of electric fires. Most stoves will require a brick built or Pre-Fabricated flue, but our Luxima Gas Stove can be installed to a Pre-Cast flue.

Chimney or Flue Type

Brick Chimney

A conventional brick chimney is recognisable by a chimney stack with a terracotta pot or gas terminal.

Chimney or Flue Type

Pre-Fabricated Flue

This is an interlocking flue tube system, identifiable by a metal flue and terminal on the roof, and a metal flue box behind the fire.

Chimney or Flue Type

Pre-Cast Flue

Pre-cast flues can be identified by a ridge vent or metal flue tube and terminal on the roof. Constructed from concrete or clay blocks they form a rectangular section flue. All fires featuring this icon are only suitable for pre-cat flues conforming to BS EN 1858.

Chimney or Flue Type

Balanced Flue

Balanced Flue fires vent directly outside through a horizontal co-axial pipe (one pipe within a larger pipe). The Outer pipe draws air in from the outside and the inner pipe expels combustion gases.

Our solid fuel stoves are controlled with primary and secondary air slides. All or our gas stoves are controlled by a sophisticated remote system that also features a thermostatic control.
