Before purchasing a stove, you should check whether you live in a smoke control area. If so, by law you can only install a Defra Approved appliance.

Home-Sweep are HETAS approved for the installation of twin walled flexible steel liners and rigid chimney systems both internal and external.
Home-Sweep also carries out pressure tests in order to determine whether your chimney needs to be lined.
Chimney liners improve stove efficiency and if properly maintained, eliminate seepage and therefore minimise the potential for carbon monoxide seepage.
