Gas Flue

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

We have a living flame gas fire that has been disconnected for a couple of years due to the fact that fumes were coming back into the room. When it was disconnected we were told that a new flue would have to be installed but at the time we couldn't afford it. Now that we can, I am not sure which tradesmen to contact - I know a gas safety person must re-connect the fire but what about the flue? Would that be fitted by a gas man?
Any help anyone can give me would be much appreciated. Is there any trades person that is recommended?
Cheers
Triss

Re: Gas Flue

The gas safe engineer would need to do the flue - this is one of the most important issues and it is the fumes that will kill if done incorrectly.

I used the New Gas Showrooms near Flax Moss chippy Haslingden and they did a good job.

Whoever you choose - they must be "Gas Safe" registered - NOT "Corgi".

Is this flue down the chimney?

Re: Gas Flue

There isn't a chimney - there was an ordinary old fashioned gas fire there originally with a vent up to the roof and when we had the living flame fire fitted the fitters tested it it was OK - I believe they lit a match and held it near the vent and said it was OK but when it was very windy we could smell fumes so stopped using it and called in an enginner who disconnected it.
Thanks very much for your reply -

Re: Gas Flue

Hmm, doesn't sound like a good test - I think they were just checking to see if the draw was OK.

It's not something to play around with - get a RGI in.
Check to see their gas safe registration before letting them over the door.
Check a business or engineer

The search will also find fitters near you.
