WELCOME TO ONE OF THE LONGEST-ESTABLISHED WOODSTOVE WEBSITES IN THE UK
WE HAVE BEEN IN THE STOVE BUSINESS SINCE 1986!
Since 1986, we have offered free telephone and email advice to customers - then serviced, repaired, sold and installed solid fuel stoves from 3kW compacts to 22kW giants for them. These days we concentrate on keeping stoves in good order, and some of those that we maintain are over 30 years old.
Maintenance is an art!
Every stove needs our gentle touch once in a while!
We charge for travel, time on site and parts.
Servicing involves replacement of worn, heat-eroded, missing or damaged parts to keep your stove operating safely. Temperature variations lead to minor movement between components and the seals between the parts need to checked at least annually.
Typically, expect to replace door seals every 12-24 months, internal firebricks every 24-36 months,
internal baffles and other parts if you burn damp fuel (over 20% water) or preservative treated timber
If your stove is too dangerous to be fixed, then we will explain to you why that is. Neglect and corrosion will ruin your stove but we do our best to extend its life.
There are three levels of warnings that might apply to a faulty stove, ranging from minor non-compliance to downright dangerous. In the worst cases, stoves must be red-tagged and out of use until repaired or replaced.
Servicing of heating stoves involves repair and replacement of damaged, missing or usage-worn parts preferably on an annual basis.
HETAS engineers hold separate qualifications for different types of heating unit and alternative chimney systems - make sure that yoru engineer is qualified by insisting on seeing his HETAS id card.
We usually travel up to 50 miles to help you.
We charge £1 a mile for our time and fuel costs and we will travel much further if needs be.
Our current on-site rate is £45 per half-hour - a typical annual service takes about an hour.
From Dover in the East to Salisbury in the West, from the South Coast to London, if you are happy to pay for the mileage, we are happy to work for you.
