When I started out fitting stoves I was surprised on how much it actually cost to fit a one, this is often a lot more than people initially perceive. The purpose of this page is to give you a ball park figure of a stove and flue liner installation based on a popular sized two storey house and using an independent non vat registered Hetas installer. If a company is vat registered the odds are your likely to need to pay more than the list below.
Quality stove and flue liner installation between £950.00 - £1100 ( usually around the 1 k mark
Plus the cost of a decent mid range 5kw stove aprox £ 600 +
£1600 = An approximate price for a decent mid range stove and a quality hetas registered flue lining job
The cost of having a fireplace opened up with a new hearth layed with the insides rendered and the chimney stack tidied by plastering the effected area is usually an additional £500 - 600. Plus the cost ot the hearth 0 to £200
Please remember each fire place installation is unique so prices may vary according to how much work needs to be done, materials usage, regional location and many other variants !
Twin wall flue pipe installations
If you don't have a chimney then your are going to need a prefabricated insulated twin wall flue pipe installation.
An external twin wall flue pipe installation can be fitted on a two storey bed house from aprox £1700 - 2100, not including the cost of the stove and other building work like hearths and fire boarding.
If you are handy around the house you might be intersted in making a saving on the intallation by doing some of the work your self such as laying the hearth and tiling etc.
Wood Stove Fitters no longer do twin wall flue installations but concentrate more on sweeping chimneys and chimney flue linings of existing masonry chimney. Please see the services page for more details
