At Hot Box we only offer some of the best stoves on the UK market and always aim to complement them with quality installation components.
We have installed a great number of stoves since we started out in 2009. From our experience, we have learned that the most important thing with regard to any installation is the quality of the stove and the components used.

STOVE INSTALLATION TYPES
INTERNAL INSULATED FLUE INSTALLATION
This system is installed straight up from the stove. It will pass through the floors and ceilings and then out through the roof of the property. The installer will seal the flue pipe with flashing where it passes through the roof to keep it weather tight. However, one key advantage of this type of system is that it keeps the flue gases hotter, which gives a better draw and fewer deposits within the flue. This kind of system is typically quicker and more cost effective than an external system as it does not require holes in outer walls or expensive bends and tee pieces.
EXTERNAL INSULATED FLUE INSTALLATION
Some installations require a double insulated flue pipe that goes straight through an external wall, which then runs up the side of the property to above the roof line. These type of systems are more expensive since tee pieces, and bends are required to avoid the roof overhangs. External insulated flues are a little harder to install compared with internal systems and result in colder flue gases. Installing a stove in the extention within 2.3m of the main house In these situations, the flue has to run up the side of the house and above the roof. This setup is relatively expensive, and if the flue can be run greater than 2.3m from the main building, this will significantly reduce the cost. Larger than 2.3m of the main house In these situations, the installer will treat this as a normal installation.
FLEXIBLE CHIMNEY LINER
When installing a stove, only the single flue pipe runs from the wood burner up to the register plate. The installer will fit in the register plate which has an access hatch for sweeping. We can advise and create a proposal if you let us know a bit more about it. Send us a survey request with your name and telephone number and a sketch of the installation if you feel it would help. Any photos you can add are also beneficial.The flexible chimney liner is usually the easiest way of lining and insulating an existing chimney. The flexible liner is held at the top and bottom of the stack and the insulation used will depend upon the space available.
