However before you start smashing down the walls of a blocked up fireplace there are some essential considerations you must bear in mind to achieve an efficient and safe fireplace. All work must follow Part J of the UK's Building Regulations, which addresses the installation and construction of flue linings, hearths, chimney breasts and fireplaces of any combustible appliance.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You may be able to do some of the work in remodeling a blocked up fireplace if you have the ability to do so, however structural and safety problems are often found which need to be resolved professionally. You may be lucky when you uncover the old fireplace and discover that you need little more than a thorough chimney sweep and a quick clean up of the hearth to get a fire roaring. It is much more likely that you will discover crumbling brickwork that needs structural modifications and a stopped up flue.

A poorly installed fireplace can cause significant fire risk and respiratory health problems and should only be fitted by a specialist fireplace installer in Brampton with the experience and knowledge to do the job effectively. Airflow has to be satisfactory in any room which has a fireplace; in fact it's a key requirement of the Building Regulations (Part J) that this is the case. Lethal carbon monoxide fumes can accumulate from an inefficiently burning fire in an inadequately ventilated space.

It may be necessary to fit airflow vents in walls and floors to enable the fire to get sufficient oxygen to burn safely and effectively at all times. To prevent condensed air becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing staining and damp spots, vents may have to be fitted by the fireplace installation team to introduce more airflow.
