CASE STUDY

Cottage Woodburning Stove Flue System – TUBEX PLUS®

Embers Fires and Flues installed SFL’s TUBEX PLUS® at a beautiful cottage in Somerset using a stunning Dean Forge Dartmoor ECO wood-burning stove. With large inglenooks often tricky, and without the need to wrap or backfill the chimney, the simple-to-use TUBEX PLUS® was used to provide quick installation and maximum comfort heat output on the fireplace.

"The Dean Forge stove was commissioned, and the customers were good to go and delighted with their efficient stove. The customer wheeled a wheelbarrow of logs in, thinking he would burn this on the first night, and was surprised when he was told that would probably last him at least a week due to the new system's efficiency. The TUBEX PLUS® system is robust and easy to handle. The liner drop went well, and the connection's top and bottom were easily made."

Julia, Embers Fires and Stoves

Background

Embers Fires and Flues offer a professional, friendly, efficient, and punctual service for all your chimney sweeping needs. Julia works on domestic stoves and open fires to larger commercial projects, and all are carried out to the highest standard. With over ten years of experience, NVQ qualified, and a HETAS-approved installer, Julia was contracted to install a stove fireplace system at an idyllic cottage in Tatworth, Somerset using SFL’s new twin wall insulated flexible liner TUBEX PLUS®. Since completing this installation, Julia has subsequently recommended the system and won more jobs due to its performance and ease of use.

Solution

Julia had considered backfilling or wrapping the chimney on this installation, which is costly and time-consuming. After reading articles, Embers Fires and Flues came across a recent case study using SFL’s TUBEX PLUS® at the Claycutters Arms pub installed by a regular TUBEX PLUS® installer at Comfort Heating & Stoves. After receiving a sample, Julia put forward the TUBEX PLUS® system to her customer to maximise the efficiency of the stove in ensuring the exit temperatures in the flue pipe. With the stunning Dean Forge Dartmoor Eco 5 stove in place, the scaffold went up, and an old single-skin stove liner was removed as it was connected to a gas cowl. A new crown and pot was installed, and the SFL TUBEX PLUS® passed through the pot with the nose cone and rope.

 

Result

The twin wall insulated liner was easy to guide and drop. The mini Eurocowl was installed onto the liner and onto the chimney pot. The mini Eurocowl and anti-down draft cowl is a personal preference for liner protection for Embers Fires and Flues, which is compatible with TUBEX PLUS®, which was a bonus for Julia. An adaptor was then installed to the liner’s vitreous enamel pipe from the stove. The Dean Forge stove was commissioned, and the customers were good to go and delighted with their efficient stove. The customer wheeled a wheelbarrow of logs in, thinking he would burn this on the first night, and was surprised when he was told that would probably last him at least a week due to the new system’s efficiency. The TUBEX PLUS® system is robust and easy to handle. The liner drop went well, and the connection’s top and bottom were easily made.
