Before you start prising away at a blocked up chimney there are a few things you'll need to do to ensure you can install your new fireplace in a safe and efficient way. Any work that's carried out on your hearth, flue lining, chimney breast and fireplace must comply with the United Kingdom's building regs, Part J for combustible appliances.

You might be capable of doing some of the work in restoring a blocked up fireplace if you've got the ability needed, but there is always a problem in finding safety and structural problems which need to be resolved professionally. You could be lucky when you uncover the old fireplace and discover that you need little more than a thorough chimney sweep and a quick clean out of the hearth in order to get your fire roaring. However, what you will most likely find is a pile of crumbling, old bricks that hides issues such as a lintel that needs to be replaced or a blocked up chimney.

Due to the acute health and fire risk problems that can result from a poorly installed or restored fireplace, it is advisable to draw on the knowledge and experience of a professional fireplace installer in Ashby-de-La-Zouch. A major factor of Part J of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available for the fire to burn safely and efficiently. If there's not enough airflow then it is possible that a fire will not burn efficiently and cause carbon monoxide fumes to build up, which can be deadly.

To safely overcome any airflow problems, vents might be fitted around the room during a fireplace installation, to guarantee suitable oxygen levels reach the fire. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also need to have air vents fitted since they can sometimes trap moist air within them and cause damp to build up inside the chimney.
