  1. Not quite true You do need extra ventilation if it is a new build or if the house has being modernised or improved eg double glazing etc due to less draughts also if it is fitted in a kitchen . It can also depend on the build of the stove as to how much extra ventilation is required .
  2. the problem is its a transit!! the build quality and fuel economy is shocking in the new vans 😒
  3. That is Exactly what they are designed for as new build Houses are supposed to be air tight and draught free .But you need air draught for a fire to burn properly normally a min 12 pascals on a 5 kw stove. larger stoves need upwards of 20 pa or more for a proper burn subject to manufacture's instructions . This allows the flue gasses to be drawn up the Chimney rather than back in to the room in layman terms.

    sorry meant to say 689 between Milton and Farlam nr Brampton
  5. Right I fit stoves for a living(HETAS) and most manufactures recommend at least swept once - twice a year dependent on use. Just because you have not used a fire much does not stop it from getting blocked in the flue even if it has a bird guard on it as i have seen where birds have pushed sticks through the mesh even when they can not get in to the flue and blocked it. I have seen people tell me that there stove has only been used occasionally when i come to do a homeowners report and the bars are burnt out on a 3 year old stove. People burn all sorts on them as well .From napp
