The usual rule for any chimney lining or alteration which has been done to run a gas fire is “ALL OUT”. The gas liner is not made from a metal strong enough to cope with the heat from wood burning stoves and multi fuel stoves and will start to disintegrate releasing noxious fumes. You will only need to replace this gas liner with a liner suitable for Wood burning Stoves or Multi Fuel Stoves if your chimney is leaking. It may be that you will find your brick chimney is in good order however, if you find your chimney leaks we can supply a full lining kit. I have no chimney! Can I still install a wood burning stove or multi fuel stove? The answer to this is YES! But you may have to apply for planning permission either in advance or retrospectively.
