Building Regulations

At Brighton Chimney Sweeps we sweep open fires, wood and multi fuel burning stoves and gas fires. We are fully insured, professional, diligent and dedicated to delivering the highest standard of service.

The installation of appliances used to burn solid fuels is covered by Building Regulations Part J. This includes wood burning stoves & multi-fuel burning stoves.

The regulations include the requirements around the position of the stove in relation to the room it is in, installing suitable liners into the existing brick flue, the hearth size and thickness, the room ventilation and other important factors that ensure a stove is installed properly so it can be used safely.

Please remember that as stove installations are covered by building regulations they require appropriate sign off to ensure they have been installed properly. A HETAS accredited installer can sign off his or her own work but a DIY install or an install completed by a general builder who does not have HETAS accreditation MUST be signed of by your councils building regs team.
