Any installation of a heating appliance, or modification to a chimney such as relining, has to be carried out in accordance with Building Regulations (Part J and Part L in England and Wales). In England and Wales there is also a requirement that Building Control Consent is obtained for such work, unless a Qualified Competent Person carries out the work. (The governing bodies are HETAS for all solid fuel and woodburning appliances and Gas Safe for all gas work).
From the 1st of October 2010, a sealed battery powered CO detector must be installed into the same room as your stove. Also any house that was built on or after 2008 will require an air vent, even if the stove is under 5kw. If the stove you have chosen has a 5” outlet, the regulations also state that you will usually need a minimum of a 6” dia. flue liner.
