Wood Heater Installation
Did you know that only plumbers with a mechanical licence can legally install wood heaters?
Wood heaters can only be installed on non-combustible surfaces such as concrete and tiles. Installation on carpet or timber flooring must be on a fire rated hearth base.
There are also set back regulations from walls that need to be taken into account when installing a wood heater; our licenced plumber will be able to advise you further.
hot tips for your wood heater
The flue for your wood heater should be regularly cleaned due to ash build up which could block your flue and cause a fire hazard.
The deck tite which covers you flue connection through to your roof can deteriorate over time causing a water leak.
The flue itself can also rust out and these items should be reviewed regularly to prevent a water leak but also to keep your wood heater operating at its best.
