Gas Fire Installation

Gas Fire Installation

We specialise in gas fires and our gas engineers are Gas Safe Registered and very experienced in this field. We offer a free survey to estimate for installation of your gas fire, where we will go through in details the different options. If you have chosen goods we will check that they are suitable for fireplace and flue before you purchase.

Before any gas fire can be installed the flue needs to be swept and tested to BS5871.

Our engineer are all able to offer the service of sweeping and testing the chimney so we can offer this service at the time of the site visit to save having 2 appointments.

If you have already had this done by a registered sweep we will need to see the valid certification to check that it has been done to the correct standards.

If you do not have a gas supply at the fireplace we can estimate for running the gas supply. To install a DFE gas fire we would run an 8mm gas pipe into the centre rear of the chamber.

If you wish your own builders or gas fitters to run the pipework please ensure that they run the 8mm feed in the chamber (centre rear with 12" tail) and the maximum length of this pipe should be no more that 1.5m. The isolation valve can be in the chamber under the basket/insert and is there for servicing purposes only.

All gas fires over 7kw will require a vent of 100cm square free air to be installed in the same room as the appliance.

The hearth must be to building regulations, 300mm in front of the appliance and 150mm either side. The hearth should be raised 50mm above floor level otherwise a fender is required.

We are able to issue CP12 safety certificates on completion of installation.
