For starters, it really pays to think about this as soon as possible, even if you're not quite ready to fit one right away. When a wood burning stove is planned in from the very start in many cases it could help you to reduce its installation costs. It can simplify dealings with Building Control and can improve your SAP calculation. Better still, If the stove is for a new-build you can even claim back the 20% VAT on it and its installation components and as well as the installation costs.
Starting early means that you can choose the exact stove that you want without disappointments or compromises later on. For example, many specialist stoves are virtually bespoke and can take time to come through. At the Stove Yard our dedicated stove team have the expertise and experience to deal with your architect, interior designer or builder and we can do as little or as much as you want us to – from providing simple money-saving advice about flues to a complete one-stop installation service that can include the fireplace if you wish.
