Fumisterie (Flues)

The Expat Plumbing Heating & Renewable Energy Services Engineer has installed hundreds of flues across the UK & in France, with having 20 years of heating installation experience and ex HETAS installer be sure your flue will be fitted correctly and safely.

Solid fuel flues systems come in a variety of different materials , different thicknesses and lengths for different type of solid fuel appliances , all flue systems need to conform to NF DTU 24.1 (French Building Regs)

All flues for best performance should be insulated, a insulated flue stops condensation and creates a quicker draw from the stove heating the stove more quickly and releasing the dangerous fumes faster, condensation is acidic and will corrode your stove decreasing its lifetime. The heat that you see on your stove data plate is the heat that the stove generates not the flue. The down side to a insulated flue is the cost it adds extra to the installation but increases your stoves performance. Its up to you to decide which you prefer.

All flues have clearances and dimensions that must be adhered to:

Closed door appliance must have a minimum of 150mm flue (unless stated different by the manufacturer)

Open door appliance or appliance that can be open door and closed must have a minimum flue size of 180mm (unless stated different by the manufacturer)
