Transforming An Underutilised Fireplace
Our client had an outdated, disconnected gas fireplace in their living room which they wanted to replace with a wood-burning stove. After removing the non-functional Victorian-era gas fire and conducting an inspection of the original brick fireplace and chimney, we determined that a multifuel stove would be an ideal, efficient heating solution.
With years of experience fitting multifuel stoves wood burners, and biomass pellet fires across Cardiff, our team was well-equipped to actualise the client’s vision. We began by disconnecting and removing the existing gas fireplace unit along with the ornamental centerpiece and wooden surround. This exposed the original brickwork that had been hidden away for decades.
After thoroughly cleaning and restoring the fireplace’s brickwork, we then sized and cut a bespoke Welsh slate hearth to perfectly fit the 30mm space. We located the existing chimney and dropped a flexible 316 Mi flue liner down through it, attaching a vitreous pipe connector to the stove itself. Finally, we installed a registration plate above the stove to maximise heat efficiency by containing it within the living space.
F2 Acona Slider Multifuel Stove Install: Showcasing A Modern Take on Classic Charm
In keeping with the traditional charm of the surrounding architecture paired with modern convenience, our client opted for the F2 Acona Slider model. This multifuel stove blends classic style with contemporary ease-of-use features. Its 5kw heat output capably heats spaces between 150 to 260 cubic meters, ideal for snug terraced houses.
We selected a 316 Mi Flue liner for its durability and corrosion resistance. This flexible, double-skinned stainless steel flu liner ensures the stove performs safely and efficiently. The Acona Slider’s front-facing handle also enables smooth sliding to easily tend the fire. This multifuel stove accepts both wood fuel and smokeless coal while producing minimal emissions, making it a greener heating solution.
A Customer’s Joy: Highlighting Customer Feedback
Now when our client enters their living room, they’re welcomed by the Acona Slider’s sleek cast iron body and traditional curved door frontage emitting a welcoming glow. The stove’s warmth seeps into the walls of the terraced townhouse, combating damp and dropping energy bills.
The meticulous work resulted in a transformation that the client was more than pleased with. The harmony of old-world charm and a modern heating solution was successfully realised. “Absolutely thrilled with the work carried out,” said the client, further highlighting their satisfaction with our professionalism.
