Preparing the Fireplace
We began by cutting and securing fire boards to the recess to square up the existing fireplace- this created a clean slate to build upon.
Crafting a Slate Hearth
Next, a bespoke 1500mm slate hearth was cut and laid, providing an attractive and functional base for the new stove. Matching the Welsh Slate to the surroundings lent an authentically local touch.
Installing the 316 Mi Flue
One of the most technically complex aspects was installing the flue system. We opened the roof to expose the original chimney and dropped in a 5″ 316 stainless steel flexible flue liner.
After resealing the roof, we installed a TW PRO flue kit with lead flashing for weatherproofing- this ensured the stove would vent safely and efficiently.
Results: A Cosy & Efficient Home Heating System
The clients now enjoy glowing warmth and ambiance from their new Vue Landscape 5KW output. The high-quality cast iron build radiates heat steadily across the living room.
Being a multifuel appliance, the owners can alternate between burning wood logs and smokeless fuels based on availability and cost savings. Plus, the stove’s 80% efficiency rating significantly lowers its heating expenses compared to dated open fires.
Overall, the installation’s clean execution, coupled with the stove’s reliability and versatility, has delighted the homeowners – precisely the outcome we aim for in all our projects.
