Installing your Recoheat
Your Recoheat can be installed by a member of a Competent Person scheme, but does not require a Building Control Certificate as it merely entails replacing a section of the flue, which is classed as remedial work. Your regular sweep or original installer is probably the best person to do this work.
There is a list of sweeps and installers who know all about our system on the Installers page.
You can find a sweep using the website www.findachimneysweep.co.uk
Installing your Recoheat is usually extremely easy - it simply fits into the flue collar at the top of your stove, and the rest of the flue is fitted into it. It adds about 3 inches to the height of the flue. Issues like angles and fussy bits can make it a pain, and you need a vertical section of a minimum vertical height of 12 inches - 300mm - to fit it. This can be from the top of the stove or from a T section with a soot hatch immediately off the rear of the stove.
Recoheat units are CE marked and fully compliant with British and European standards for a rigid flue section and for a flue damper. Fitting them is classed as remedial work, so does not require building control.
We are building a register of sweeps and installers familiar with our innovative heat recovery systems, who will be able to fit your Recoheat, test your flue and ensure everything is working well and safely. The currently short list is available on the Installer page.
