Fireplace Fitter Goole East Yorkshire (DN14): Re-opening an old disused fireplace to install a wood burner, a gas fire or an open fire is an excellent way to add some character and a homely feel to any Goole home. The addition of a wood burning stove or open fire for those chilly winter evenings can even prove to be less expensive than certain central heating systems, as long as you have a regular source of fuel. If combined with a back boiler it can supply you with plenty of steaming hot water in the process.
There are a few important things you must think about before you commence any work, in order to establish an efficient, attractive and safe fireplace in your home. Any combustible appliance within domestic homes in Goole must adhere to Part J of the Building Regs, and this applies to hearths, fireplaces, flue linings and chimney breasts. If you reside in a designated conservation area or a listed building you must check with local council to see if planning permission is needed for a fireplace installation in your house.
DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
A basic restoration of a pre-existing fireplace can perhaps be achieved by a skilled DIY enthusiast, however if any building work is required there is a possibility of encountering structural problems that have to be dealt with by a professional. It may be the case that when you pull back the boarding surrounding a disused fireplace to uncover a hidden gem which requires little more than a quick clean up and a check from a chimney sweep to get a roaring fire going. What you will likely discover is a pile of crumbling, old bricks that conceals problems such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.
If a fireplace is installed incorrectly there's not just a risk of fire to your property, but there can be associated health hazards, which is why it is better to bring in a certified Goole installation team for a fireplace. There must always be a decent air flow into a room where there's a fireplace to guarantee sufficient amounts of oxygen for the fire to burn properly. A deficiency of oxygen means that the fire won't burn properly, and carbon monoxide fumes could build up, which can cause injury or death.
To successfully overcome any issues with air flow, vents may be installed around the room during a fireplace installation, to ensure suitable oxygen levels are able to reach the fire. To avoid condensed air becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing staining and damp spots, vents may need to be fitted by the fireplace installation team to introduce more airflow.
BEFORE WORK BEGINS
Opening up an old fireplace can cause huge amounts of soot and dust to enter your room. It's advisable to remove any carpets, furniture and rugs from an area where you are planning to expose an old fireplace, to avoid them from being affected by grime, dust and soot that might be whipped up during the fireplace installation work. If your fireplace is being installed as part of an overall renovation project then it should be one of the first things to be done after you have brought the room back to bare walls and floors. By opening up a fireplace first you'll prevent any soot from the chimney causing discolouring damage to other stages of your project, such as wallpapered walls or fresh plasterwork.
STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK
With your fireplace now open, it is time to see what needs to be renovated or replaced and to give the hearth and chimney an intensive clean. You now need to get in touch with your chimney sweep, if you've not already done so, to come and clean the old chimney and fireplace. They will not only make sure that your flue and chimney are clean, but they can additionally assess the state of the chimney and flue liner and offer advice if you need to replace any part of the chimney and flue.
If it is necessary to strengthen the chimney or install a flue lining all current UK Building Regulations must be adhered to. These are tasks that require an experienced tradesman with a good understanding of the relevant building regs and reliable construction skills.
In older buildings you might discover that the existing fireplace is too big for your purposes, in which case a concrete supporting lintel will be needed to modify the opening. When you've supported your fireplace with a lintel it will then be necessary to update or renovate the hearth. If the current hearth is sunken into the floor you'll have to raise it to conform to the latest building regulations. If your fireplace isn't of a standard size you might have to purchase a made to measure hearth, however there are also a wide variety of ready to fit hearths in marble, concrete or slate.
STYLES OF FIREPLACE
A quick browse online or a trip to a fireplace showroom will show the alternatives available for the different designs and styles of fireplaces. It is possible that because of your current flue, chimney and airflow to the room, that some fireplaces might not be appropriate, therefore it's advisable to follow the the recommendations and advice of the fireplace installation company with respect to this.
Whether you decide on an open fireplace, a multi-fuel stove or a wood burner will hinge on the all round style you are trying to establish, your existing decor and perhaps, the age of your house. If you have an inglenook fireplace, a cast iron wood burning stove can look striking set within it, and has the added benefit of effectively deflecting heat back into the room from the stone or brick walls surrounding the stove.
Even if you haven't got a pre-existing chimney breast in your Goole home, it is still feasible to put in a wood burning or multi fuel stove. An existing chimney is not needed because a stainless steel flue is taken directly from the top or rear of the stove and channeled through an outside wall.
