INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY

Wood burning stove installation starts with your chimney: it’s one of the most important considerations for an efficient wood burner. The chimney functions as the stove’s ‘engine’ and if it doesn’t have the correct draught, it won’t function as it should.

New stoves place higher demands on draught and chimney conditions than older stoves which use traditional combustion principles. You can install your wood burner on a brick or fabricated chimney system.

DRAUGHT

Chimney draught is created because of the difference between the high temperature inside the chimney and the relatively cool air in the room.

Reduced draught may occur when:

  • The temperature difference is too small (for example, the chimney may be poorly insulated).
  • The outside temperature is too high (during the summer, for instance).
  • The chimney is too short.
  • The top of the chimney (the termination) is sheltered by the roof face, adjacent structures or high trees.
  • Air enters the chimney where it shouldn’t (e.g. through cracks).


We recommend you have your chimney checked and swept regularly by a qualified chimney sweep. This is not only important for the efficiency of your stove; it’s also a safety consideration. Regular maintenance will help to prevent dangerous chimney fires.


WOOD BURNING STOVE INSTALLATION

Make sure your wood burning stove installation is undertaken by a suitably qualified HETAS engineer

or approved by local building control. Your Morsø dealer can offer guidance and assistance with this.
