Thinking of getting a hole in the wall gas fire dont know much about them.
It is to fit into a chimney breast do I need a flue liner or do the gasses
go straight up the chimney as with a normal gas fire, any good makes to
think of buying and any makes to avoid. Anyone heard of a company called
Faber it is a dutch company who supply fires and Blazes fireplace centres
sell them. If I put a hole in the chimney breast to accomodate the fire will
I need a lintel to support the remaining brick work.
Thank you for any help.
We had one at the last house. Its the only thing I miss, so go for it, they
are great. You can use the chimney breast for 'exhaust', (with no flue) you
will need to get it smoke tested though. We had a chimney with a lot of
downdraught and solved that by taking away the chimney pot and fitting an
anti-downdraught cowl. You might want to get your chimney swept whilst it's
open before fitting the fire. We were told that they use loads of gas, but I
never noticed any gas bill difference, and my mrs. has the place warm enough
to grow bananas.
Not sure about the lintel sorry.
