Llanelli is a historic market town in Carmarthenshire, Wales known for its coastal location and Welsh traditions. Staying warm in the town’s older homes during chilly Welsh winters can be a challenge. That’s why the owners of this semi-detached house in Llanelli turned to contractor Hopkins Log Burners to install a new multifuel stove to heat their living space.
Read on to learn how the ACR Woodpecker WP 5 stove transformed this house into a cosy haven.
- Location: Llanelli, Carmarthenshire
- Postcode: SA14 9LA
- Property Type: Semi Detached House
- Contractor: Hopkins Log Burners
- Project: Multifuel Stove Installation
- Stove Make and Model: ACR Woodpecker WP 5
- Output: 5KW
- Flue Type: Midtherm 316 Flexi Liner
The Multifuel Stove Installation Process
The first step was to expose the original chimney through the roof and drop a 5 inch 316 grade stainless steel flexible flue liner all the way down. This created a safe passage for expelling fumes and enabling proper draw for the new stove.
Next, the team cut and laid a custom hearth to provide a stable, protective base for the stove. They also cut, sanded, and planed a beautiful 1.2m oak beam to install over the hearth as an attractive mantelpiece.
With the preparations complete, the crew installed the 5KW ACR Woodpecker WP5 multifuel stove, aligning it properly with the new flue system. This high-efficiency model is capable of burning both wood and smokeless coal while producing minimal emissions.
Transforming the Llanelli Living Space
The new stove instantly transformed the living room into a warm, inviting space. The stylish new hearth and hand-crafted oak mantel added character and charm while also protecting the floor from errant sparks and embers.
On frosty nights, the owners can now cozy up near the flickering flames and enjoy the dry, radiant heat emanating from the stove. The ACR Woodpecker WP5 provides steady warmth for many hours, while maintaining a clear view of the fire through its large glass window.
By installing a powerful, efficient stove, this Llanelli home went from drafty to draft-free. The owners are already looking forward to spending next winter relaxing fireside with a cup of tea or hot cocoa. Hopkins Log Burners helped make this living space warm, welcoming, and worry-free with an expert installation.
