It is no coincidence that we offer advice on fireplaces, Inglenooks, chimneys and wood burning stoves. The risks associated with open fires are an important issue for owners of traditional buildings. Our work has given us an intimate knowledge of the co-dependence between keeping a house warm and maintaining safety.
Older properties can benefit from the installation of efficient ‘clean burn’ solid fuel stoves which increase the flow of air through the building but it is vital that existing chimneys are sound and able to cope with the increase in temperature that will ensue. This is particularly important in thatched buildings where a transfer of heat into the thatch itself poses a potential danger for the roof.
We offer advice on all aspects of heating a traditional home including risk assessment and information on safety precautions.
