Have a look at this page on AI  http://brittany.angloinfo.com/af/398/brittany-wood-burning-stoves-and-cookers.html  

This might help but if you are looking to get one installed before winter now you may be struggling.

You have your answer - Registered installer. You can get the install at 10% VAT. There are no internal fumes, despite the requirement for a CO monitor often applied.

Choose the burner carefully, log lengths vary as do the output/efficiecy levels of the burn. Never even be tempted with putting coal or other waste on it.

We have had them in all our houses and without doubt a fantastic investment - in large leasure made central heating unecessary!

 

Bon chance

We have an excellent Artisan who does work for us on our property but we still went with a registered installer whos quote was more expensive, not only is it important from an insurance point of view but think of your own and your guests safety, the consequences of a bad chimney fire dont bare thinking about.

My husband who is a registered builder had ours installed by a registered chimney installer  as said before for insurance purposes it is worth it .Ask him  if he knows of a sweep for future reference

hello all, registered installer everytime...the risk of fire, the poisonous gasses and the efficiency of the stove are all big considerations..

Ask your pro. installer about the "tax/vat rebate" that was available when we had ours installed, it was significant!

For insurance purposes use a registered  installer not a general builder , I got it wrong had a chimny fire ,and my insurance did pay out but it was very difficult ...
